CPTSD survivors can be as strong as laminated unbreakable glass, as fragile as coffee carafe, or as dangerous as a broken beer bottle.
When failure is the only logical conclusion for every mistake, then it’s time to raise the burden of proof!
In The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma, van der Kolk combines his experience with his clients with recent and evolving scientific studies into a single resource for anyone working with trauma survivors. This is a must read for anyone who is eager to heal from their trauma, which could be from one event (like PTSD) or continual trauma (like Complex PTSD).
My children were triggering me to no end. How can it be an over-reaction when, very logically and rationally of course, I was right!?
Somehow, I ended up with a blinding fear of criticism about my judgment and decision-making abilities.
A wonderful book that describes CPTSD and how to heal from its devastating effects on daily life.
