My Past Haunts Me

It's like a broken record in my head. I have been doing everything I can to change my thinking when it creeps in. I don't want to hold on to stuff I want it all to go away. I guess I have been hurt so much I have put up too big of a wall. I want to be happy again and get past all of this. This last time I got hurt really has set me back and I am still taking it all in and trying to let go. I know it will get better I am just scared it will happen again. I am so out of it I don't know if I ammaking sence. I have a lot of other things going on in my life too which just adds to it. I want to feel better.

Maybe you can try to change your feelings about your thoughts; for instance, when you say you "...have a lot of other things going on" maybe you can think which ones really matter? I think you'll find you just need to find your own ways to relax and find peace. Stressing yourself out is something we all do too much off. There is no reason you have to suffer.

Well, I hope you get better soon with your medical condition. This sounds horrible. <br />

Okay, I'll tell you the other thing I do for my PTSD.... I prayed and asked God to remind me each time I start to relive my past to bring the following sc<x>ripture verse to my mind and He does everytime. It's amazing! I also asked Him to bring happy time memories to my thinking about my childhood and all kinds of happy memories pop into my mind now. Things I have forgotten.<br />

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Thanks so much :) That was so nice. I have been hurt recently and it feels good that someone nice like you is reaching out.

Thanks so much :) I am in counciling now and yes it does help a lot. I can't take any mood stabilizers at the moment because of health problems. I asked last time I was at my doctor and he said I can't put anymore stress on my liver. I have a disease like lupus and had a flair.

Do you possibly have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? I do and a mood stabilizer on top of my antidepressant has made the world of difference. I don't relive my past over and over anymore. Counseling helps tremendously too. Best wishes to you.... :)
