How to you manage your depression, ptsd and recovery? When my depression and ptsd come to the surface i want to get loaded but fight as hard as i can. I dont want to relapse! Seems like a circle .
Not wanting to relapse is a step in the right direction. You cant quit if you don't want to! Since you do, remind yourself why you're doing it, and the consequences of going back to a temporary fix. I might also recommend listening to some binaural positive affirmations. You can find them on youtube and it may help. Theres ones for all sorts of mental illnesses!
Well TBH I think you're going in the right direction here yr willing to fight ! So am I .. To hell with going back to those dark days eh .
That's all we can do and it's important to be aware of those triggers PTSD we don't want to have anything happen they're doing if you feel one coming on get away from the trigger.. same thing goes with depression I feel with your tripping to backslide ..calm is needed ..
