What is it like reliving your trauma everyday. Every time you close your eyes, you awake promptly after a nightmare, everyday you are triggered and have a flashback, screaming in the middle of the street. PTSD is my living nightmare. But how do I manage it, and what do I do to ease the pain of the traumatic events which led to my PTSD. How do you cope. I explain my life, living with PTSD, what triggers me and how I cope in the moment and also how I can self sooth afterwards. I explain how vivid my dreams are and also the effect it has had on my personal relationships. It is manageable and there is hope.
