PTSD 😔 this is something I unfortunately suffer with and it is absolutely the worst!
When my PTSD flares up, it heightens all my other mental health problems. For the last week my sleeping (and those of you who have read my other post know how bad my sleep is) has become much worse! When I eventually get to sleep I am having night terrors (cannot call them nightmares) and this then wakes me and all I can do is think about what I've just seen, felt and gone through - which makes me feel sick, panicky and anxious to name a few.
I am completely exhausted and drained and this makes my days so hard, never mind going to work and teaching fitness classes where I have to motivate, encourage and support my customers. This can be so difficult but once I put the music on, I feel like I've been transported to a different world, away from my problems.
Speaking of music, I've never put this out there, but for 12 years I've listened to @ladygaga everyday as 12 years ago through her songs and her strength she stopped me from committing suicide and I'll forever be grateful to her for that (even though she doesn't know). So, everytime I make a fitness class routine, I always put a Gaga song in there to not only feel her support, but to hope her lyrics touch my customers hearts too and help them if they need it.
The world can be an evil place but we have to not let it win and the only way we can do that is by spreading love and always being kind.
So please, just think before you speak, write a comment or judge - because you might be the 100th person to do that about someone and you could be the final push... Take care and much love
