My body is on strike...

I spent most of my life trying to work, exercise and walk myself to sleep...trouble is I am still awake and my body had enough. I cannot work...I cannot socialize...I am hurting all over...my body is in a state of total protest...

I suffer from PTSD and I would forget what happened from one minute to the next...never mind from one day to the next or one week to the next...people would say..remember you did this? I would reply...'No' and they would look at me strangely. I would change the topic and they would start talking about themselves and forget about my disability...

Now I am remembering lots of things...memories that were unavailable to me a year ago are coming up all over the place and I am full of hate, rage and pain as I remember...

I spent most of yesterday and the last six months really lying in bed hurting and there seems to be no end to it....I guess my body and my mind had enough.....

Your body does that sometimes Raina Walks...it just says, enough. Im doing this no longer and you cant make me, so it just shuts down..sounds like thats whats happens to you! Are you on any meds for the sleeping? It must be so painful being confronted with all these memories now...hugs.... are you getting any support? xxxx

I'm on meds for sleeping and get about 6-7 hours each night and sometimes only five hours.

I am getting support but it is limited...my main supporter is me...thanks for the hugs I'm in so much pain I needed that...

I'm spending most of my time in bed. This month I start group therapy so hopefully I will get some support there....
