I do! I'm working on my PTSD first and then plan to tackle ERP.
Thanks! I've been diagnosed with OCD for a while and have had it all my life but I only just got diagnosed with having PTSD on top of that the other day, how are you working on your PTSD if you don't mind me asking, like, what type or Therapy do you do for it?
I'm working with a therapist- CBT.
I would also recommend looking into EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) for treating PTSD. It’s basically a therapy designed for processing and coping with the feelings you have attached to specific memories with the goal of changing the feelings that come up over time. I think of it as training my brain to no longer be so scared/sad/anxious/etc. when I remember certain events. It’s not for everyone, but I’ve had success with it!
Okay, thank you for sharing :)
My official diagnoses from the psychiatrist are: OCD PTSD Major Depressive disorder Generalized anxiety disorder Social anxiety I’m currently switching meds from lexapro to Zoloft and he said there is a chance we will need to add in other meds along with the Zoloft. I am doing erp to focus on the ocd first and then I will move to trauma therapy after
I've got those two! I think for me a huge part of recovery and healing was going through different types of therapy. I started a few years back with EMDR for the trauma, and ERP now for the OCD.
