In the past two co-morbidity posts, I explained a bit of background of my personality. The C-PTSD plays into almost everything, as does the HSP. That’s why they came first. Now it’s time for anxiety.
Sorry I’ve been away for a few days. I’ve been down with the stomach bug. I promise, I’ll have a new post coming very soon.
Thanks for everyone’s patience 💜
Sorry for the sort of “delay” of a few days. Sometimes life just gets the better of me.
Now this, the HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) is not actually a disorder, more of a character trait, but, this STRONGLY plays into the co-morbidity of the other disorders. This is just the dry tinder that sparks the flame, the fuel to the fire, you get the picture.
I’ve been wanting to write this post for a long time, but it’s difficult to explain. This will come in parts, because there are multiple sides to it, and other disorders that play into it (hence co-morbidity). This will be the first step. Most people understand PTSD. Like a soldier who comes back from war, or a person who survives an extremely bad accident… PTSD usually comes from one big event that traumatizes said individual, especially when triggering events are near. So what is Complex PTSD?
I’ve had this blog for what seems like a while now, though only been “actively” using it for just under a year and a half. Even though it’s a mental health based blog (and where I talk about other parts of my life) I decided to call it AutumnSkies. Why?
This post will hopefully be the end of my talking about this person. This post is also in part a response to Letter from a Liar as well as Boy that Broke my Heart. I’m hoping that writing this letter will help me finally close the chapter that hold so much regret, anger, and disappointment.
Whilst I strongly believe that coping mechanisms are a personal thing, what may work for one may not work for another, I thought sharing some of the ways I deal with and cope with depression could potentially help with someone who may also be struggling. Also, I feel like I should add a disclaimer: I am in no way any sort of trained professional. I do strongly recommend reaching out to one (doctor, therapist, what have you) if you are having thoughts of depression.
