Dealing with PTSD by using your journal and getting professional help
If you have been diagnosed with PTSD you will know it is a terrible condition.
We know from experience that journaling can help you cope with the day to day issues you face.
Using Your Journal as Therapy
When you write you are not on your own.
You are sharing your ideas and concerns with something much greater than yourself.
This might seem strange as your journal is a private document which doesn’t have to be shared.
However, using your journal is one step towards healing and controlling PTSD.
Getting Professional Help
You can’t deal with PTSD on your own.
You need to find the right kind of treatment that suits your needs.
There is no one fix.
There are many psychologists who can offer you support.
It is useful just to sit and talk to someone who knows and understands what you are going through.
Different Options for Different People
While some go down the track of medication, others are more interested in alternative routes.
Natural therapies offer many sufferers a way of self-healing in a holistic manner.
Many have found help using Emotional Freedom Tapping or EFT.
Others are looking at diet, exercise and other modalities such as Meta Medicine.
Finding the right treatment to cure your PTSD is as individual as you are.
You may try a few before you actually find something that works for you, that’s natural.
The most important thing is that you are looking for help and being proactive about your mental health.
