Dating someone with complex ptsd: healing and growing with your partner
Ive just recently met someone who has been diagnosed with ptsd. You stated in your post that ads adult dating free online initial stages were difficult and slow and at times you tried to figure out what you did wrong. Im going through the same thing at the moment. Had over a week of silence and im struggling to figure out how to handle the situation. I am very tempted to reach out and send a message, but I get the impression that isn't a good idea as this you state they should come to you when they are ready.
My question is, how long could this be especially in the dating phase where a relationship hasn't been established. Do you have any advice for how I should handle this? Welcome here, by the sound of it you are at a loss as to what to do, which is only natural, it is not a usual situation. Because I don't know the circumstances I can't really make any specific suggestions. All I can do is say about my own expereince. When things date lunch got bad my partner took it all on herself, believing she was the cause, or at fault.
This simply was not the case, and she had to have that explained to her by my psych, after which she had more confidence. Sender her a message is good.
Dating someone with ptsd
Even though my partner's inquiries did annoy me at the time the fact she was there for me was a long term comfort. So saying you are there for her will do no harm and may do some good.
I simply kept getting worse until that happened. I don't know if that is already happening, or if not if you are in a position to suggest this. It may be that there might be others, her parents for example, who might be in a better position to persuade her. First off my apologies, I was away for a bit in February and did not read your post. I try to put up a 'Gone fishing -back in a while' avatar up instead of my portrait : when I'm not here. Do you think drinking and brooding is going to do any good?
I don't drink much as I take ladies seeking sex coulters pennsylvania many meds, however when my friends do they tend to magnify their troubles, focus on just the one thing. The fact you have not had a positive response is in all probability nothing to do with you, but her condition.
You are probably right, you see things as barriers, I at the time would have not been putting up barriers, just too mentally stretched to be able to cope with someone else and ignored them. I needed to be by myself.
Welcome to regain!
Mind you hookups springfield not such a good idea, medical and personal support is what is needed - plus time. Now we come to the bit that is worrying me, your said " I'm thinking about just giving up.
This is so hard ". Or had the whole situation gotten you so down you were thinking of taking your life? Hey Croix, what a classy message! Thanks for that. I am in no way phone sex with plantation people free, so you can ease your mind on that : I appreciate the concern though. This girl tells me the people in my life are blessed to have me, date night in rochester ny i don't hear from her for like two weeks.
It's one step forward, five steps back and i just feel like im embarrassing myself the more i contact her. I'm sorry to hear the situation you are in. It sounds like you really do care for this person and are concerned about her. I think sending her a message to say you are thinking about her, would be a nice gesture. It is not asking anything of her, just letting her know you care I think you just have to not expect any response if she is still trying to deal with things on her own. But at least she will know that someone cares.
I'd also like to thank you for reigniting this thread.
It has some very useful information for carers. And once again I find Croix's words to be so insightful, and full of hope. I just reread your post.
