Without going into details, I am having flasbacks to a traumatic even right out of the blue, and the birthday of someone involved is this month.
So you wanna know all about Sitara, huh? Knowledge is power, and you want knowledge of me? With great power comes great responsibility, so I hope you understand what you're getting yourself into. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Anything can act as a "PTSD trigger" and an anniversary of the specific event or something related to it isn't uncommon.

Talking to a professional (and/or with trusted friends and family) about it is the healthy and appropriate approach to dealing with it and treating it.

Thank you. My father's birthday is in 3 days. I think I see my therapist tomorrow.

THIS. I have PTSD and I cannot stress this enough, to anyone reading this - GET HELP IF YOU NEED IT. They're called "professionals" for a reason, and that would be that they're very good at helping people.

Believe me, I am doing that. I cannot believe how much stress I was holding onto.

Neither can I. I still have a long way to go, but I started out going to the psychologist because it was important to my boyfriend that I went and I was doing it for him. Now I get why it was so important to him and I do it because I know it's what I need to do.

What sucked is that the panic attack hit me with no warning at all. I just started freaking out. I hope you get better too.
