"Just let go"

Have you been a victim? Or have you contributed to your own stigma?

I'm seriously having this conversation. Explaining C-PTSD to someone with schizoaffective disorder who tells me to "just let go" and to "put it behind" me.
That the pain is an illusion, that it isn't worth it to dwell over it. :shock:

It's expecting that when one has suicidal thoughts and goes through a hard time, their friends would be helpful. I'll let go alright...

Fuck it, not talking to them again.

Stupid thing is, he has PTSD, or he says he does. I doubt a person with PTSD would tell someone to "just let go"...

I was just pissed. It's over.. I don't know how I still get pissed with this stuff, happens so often. I think in this case it's because he has MI too, I thought I could talk to him that he would understand, guess not.

You would think that you could discuss things more openly with them. A shame though... As others have said you have other people or can make friends you social butterfly you :lol:
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.
