Jessica has joined with Brenda. Jessica it’s great you reached out. I’m a trauma coach who has had his own journey with PTSD. How are you doing?

SO good. I have my “go tos” for friends who are my anchors. I try to schedule reaching out when things seem bleak. Really helps.

Brenda do you have any “go to” people? PTSD among many things is LONELY. So doing all we can to combat that is great.

I have a few but don't like to bother them. It is extremely hard for me to reach out

I know it’s very hard to reach out. I have the same issue: “don’t bother them.” I actually flip the script and decide I won’t talk about me right away. I want to know how they are first.

I have tried that but then it never flips to me and I just help them

Most of the time, it then moves naturally to sharing. And I get to feel good and solid that I was there for a friend.

I wonder why it feels so hard to reach out when we need to

For me cause I'm a caregiver and to me asking for help shows weakness(that's due to the military)

Because we feel like Others. It’s natural. Our experiences are outsized. But we are not our experiences.

I understand the weakness part. That feeling eesh. But I’m still here after all I’ve seen and so are you. That is the very definition of strength.
