Still traumatised after being cheated on. How to heal?

Marilynjuana
I was diagnosed with PTSD from all this crap. It wasn’t just the cheating, it was the vile mental torture that followed the cheating. My entire relationship was a lie, I trusted, and was stabbed in the back over and over again. When I found out, he shoved the knives deeper in.

I hate using the word “triggered” because it’s a damn meme at this point but I have specific stupid WORDS that make me lose myself. “Nude”, “condoms”, “sexting”, “thick”, “sexy”. Just typing them up I feel my throat burning and closing up. There are smells, there are physical movements, there is so much.

I have panic attacks. Some days I’m better, other days I cannot eat or drink. I have nightmares. I’m a kickboxer and my physique and progress have deteriorated so quickly because I just feel physically broken.

It’s been 7 months and some days. When will it get better?
