    i have a tendency to find ways to blame myself when things go wrong in life even if they couldn't be helped. i have a lot of triggers that trigger a memory that puts me in a depressive state. i suffer from ptsd, dysthymic disorder, and reactive attachment disorder. a lot of everyday things trigger me. a screwdriver for instance. my beloved chevy s10. i won't sleep in a bed that has a head or foot board cause its a trigger. is there any way to block the memory link? or am i just going to have to face these triggers all the time?

    Hello and welcome to the forums Jase.

    I'm sorry you're going though this.

    Are you currently seeing a therapist? They can teach you ways to cope :hug:

    I agree with lynn! why not see if you can try some CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy)
