How to Cope with Body Memory(Contains Graphic Content)

How's your balance today? Are you coping with symptoms pretty well?

Part of our battle is fighting off body memory. Many sources that we trust keep saying the same thing. Body memory is a normal part of trauma flooding out. It differs according to your situation and healing rate. But it can't be avoided.

That's true. But here's a question. How do you cope when you feel like you have endless replays of beign raped? How do you cope with endless lucid dreams? Really sick and twisted things come to mind. (We won't go into details and trigger you).

Instead, think of it this way. You have to fight this stuff all day long. Plus, go to work and deal with the usual daily things that come up. At the end of the day, you're totally exhausted. But you know you can't just roll over and die.

Other than the fear of falling apart, what helps your balance? For us, it's diet, exercise. And the refusal to just fall apart.

Post your thoughts on this.
