Default Helpful tips for PTSD

Hello to anyone whos reading this;
I was diagnosed with PTSD not long ago,however Ive been living with it for around 2 years as I was having severe flashbacks and nightmares from an accident I was in , which led to a long time medical condition! Over these 2 years I have found some really useful tips and techniques when struggling with sleep, everyday tasks and life in general!
1)remember you are a survivor and that your on this world for a reason and your life is just as important as anyone elses❤️
2)if your struggling to sleep I strongly recommend chamomile tea and warm baths! Also having TV on in the background can help as it provides almost a distraction , so your brain wont be thinking about the worst things.
3)if you feel like a panic attack is on its way then do some deep breathing;inhale for 4 seconds and breathe out as slowly as you can , this makes your heart rate decrease massively!
Lastly , I think that speaking to someone you can trust really helps , this all sounds clich but little self-helping tasks added up can help massively x

Hi all,

I definitely recommend a weighted blankie and teddy bears.
