**TRIGGER WARNING FOR THIS ENTIRE PAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My name is RJ, I'm a female college student & this is for the people who are broken, the ones who have been through hell. Don't give up =) I have PTSD and that's mainly what this page focuses on; Understanding about PTSD & Support. It isn't just for people who have PTSD, anyone is welcome here, even if you're just curious =) Feel free to ask questions about my PTSD or anything else =)
Have you ever had a required school assignment that triggers your PTSD? If so, how do you work through it to complete the work? I have to write an essay on abuse, but I can't manage to do any research without having flashbacks so bad I burst into tears.
Well, I would certainly try to talk to the instructor first to see if you could do an alternative assignment. Secondly, I would temporarily find an accountability buddy to check on you for the duration of the assignment if you still have to do it. The other thing I have done when I’ve worked on assignments like that in that I’ll go over to a friend’s house and work on it there because A- I wouldn’t do anything stupid at a friend’s house, B- It gives me a chance to relax a little bit because then I’m not as concerned with trying to avoid getting upset. For me, it’s easier for me to try and get the assignment done quickly, but for some people, it’s easier to do it in small pieces and to take a lot of breaks. I guess a lot of it would depend on the particular assignment in question and how much of it would involve your own personal experiences being shared.
a male celebrity can literally beat his girlfriend half to death and still enjoy a successful career with millions of adoring fans
a female celebrity can gain a few pounds and she’s shunned, mocked, and ridiculed by thousands of people over many different mediums
do you see the problem with this
I lost a close friend of mine on monday morning and found out that my sister my be leaning towards death and it’s a lot to handle at the moment. I have still been checking my inbox on FB, Youtube and here, but I just haven’t had the time to post. I’m going to be getting a couple videos up on Youtube in the next couple of nights, so keep you eye out for the links.
Hope you’re all doing well
