Never Let Your Guard Down

One thing all trauma survivors have to keep in mind. Never let your guard down so that triggering stuff could harm you in some way. It's like addicts who can't afford to relapse. You might think it's a way to escape pain, but it's not. It just makes things way worse.

We don't want to go back to violently dissociating and have no idea of where we are, what time it is and then not caring. Fighting psychotic episodes all the time. Not knowing where you are. You have to protect yourself. If you don't, the tiniest triggering thing could kill you. Does that ever go away? No it doesn't.

You have to protect yourself. We had another dissociative slip. But we're be okay. The pain never goes away.

Protect yourself.
