PTSD Patrol learning how to cry again

PTSD Patrol

November 3, 2020

There is so much we haven't talked about yet on PTSD Patrol. One of them is the why today's featured video is Jackson Browne, Doctor My Eyes. Before you start to heal PTSD, you may have been doing everything you can to numb pain. After all, that is all you end up feeling because PTSD eats away love, hope, compassion, and all the goodness you felt before. Misery exists and you want it to stop but if you have no idea how much better your life can be, that is all you can think of doing. 

When you get numb, all that pain builds up behind a wall. That is not a good thing,
Just say if it's too late for me
Doctor, my eyes
They cannot see the sky
Is this the prize
For having learned how not to cry?
But once you start to heal, the chance of you starting to cry is about 99%. It almost always happens. It can scare the crap out of you. It is not bad! It is a good thing because it means as you heal, the bricks in the wall start to let go and out comes the bad feelings that have been eating you up.

Good feelings finally have room to move in and take the place of bad ones. So if you are crying, then cry, because the more you do, the more you heal.

#BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from #PTSD




Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Now I want to understand
I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can
Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long?
'Cause I have wandered through this world
And as each moment has unfurled
I've been waiting to awaken from these dreams
People go just where they will
I never noticed them until I got this feeling
That it's later than it seems
Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what you see
I hear their cries
Just say if it's too late for me
Doctor, my eyes
They cannot see the sky
Is this the prize
For having learned how not to cry?
