I need HELP.. and answers.
Short and sweet, something is wrong.
I’ve been dealing with PTSD and my incredibly shitty childhood for a while now. I’ve done an ok job, but I’m freaking out, literally.
I just watched a movie and was SEVERELY triggered. (Girl had a flashback of being molested and, although it was implied, it was obvious). I felt it coming & tried to leave quickly.
As I walked out, I became very dizzy (as if I were drunk) and very nauseated. My heart began to pound. I faught not to dissociate in the lobby… it was horrible.
I’ve had panic attacks, but this just felt different. Is this a response to being triggered? I just can’t shake it!
