PTSD Awareness Day | Not Seizure Update

Before I was diagnosed with #ptsd in Jan 2015, I had no idea what was happening to me. All I could do was train. The gym and the clinic became safe places for me and when i started having flashbacks, my MHP made me inform David and Randy and put safety measures in place. One really awful thing about any kind of Trauma is that it isolates you. It wants you to believe that you are ALONE in your fear, doubt, and moments of terror. THANK YOU to my friend “The Marine” who was the first person to come along side me, show me the ropes, and gave me the courage to seek healing. || Last Summer I started having Events I thought were seizures, but long video EEG (the diagnostic gold standard) proved they are NOT seizures. Actually, these events started brewing in 2018, and became full blown in 2021. They never stopped, I just stopped talking about them bc I was ignoring them after learning they were not seizures. 2 recent Events made them impossible to ignore and were the first ones that were clearly PTSD related. I’m not saying there’s a 100% correlation here, I’m saying it is extremely distressing to concede even a partial relationship. This situation is being worked. Thank you to the professionals who look out for me, help me plan for my safety, and accept and help me when these Events come up during treatment. #avmsurvivor #strokesurvivor #lifeismysport #learninghowtolive #shreddedgrace #ptsdawareness
