Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Jake Wood
#1. You are no longer human, with all those depths and highs and nuances of emotion that define you as a person.
There is no feeling any more, because to feel any emotion would also be to beckon the overwhelming blackness from you. My mind has now locked all this down. And without any control of this self-defence mechanism my subconscious has operated. I do not feel any more. #Quote by Jake Wood
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Leslie Marmon Silko
#2. In that hospital they don't bury the dead, they keep them in rooms and talk to them. #Quote by Leslie Marmon Silko
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Ryan Goodrich
#3. I'll give you one chance to run,
but may your shoulder always whisper in your ear…

"It's best to watch out for men, like me. #Quote by Ryan Goodrich
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Christina Henry
#4. Everything else is the past or the future. Don't think about them. Be here with me, right now. #Quote by Christina Henry
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Robert Anthony
#5. Years ago I had realized I was blaming myself for it. People and doctors would tell me it wasn't my fault, but I couldn't "BELIEVE" it! Then I was talking to my friend Kieran and he explained to me in a way that I could PERCEIVE that I was not at fault. No one else could ever do that before, though many tried. Many, many people had tried to tell me it wasn't my fault, but I was convinced it was my fault because I was trying to cheer up my dad. #Quote by Robert Anthony
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Linda M. Williams
#6. One hundred twenty-nine women with documented histories of sexual victimization in childhood were interviewed and asked about abuse history. Seventeen years following the initial report of the abuse, 80 of the women recalled the victimization. One in 10 women (16% of those who recalled the abuse) reported that at some time in the past they had forgotten about the abuse. Those with a prior period of forgetting--the women with "recovered memories"--were younger at the time of abuse and were less likely to have received support from their mothers than the women who reported that they had always remembered their victimization. The women who had recovered memories and those who had always remembered had the same number of discrepancies when their accounts of the abuse were compared to the reports from the early 1970s.

Recovered memories of abuse in women with documented child sexual victimization histories.

Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Dori Laub
#7. Not knowing trauma or experiencing or remembering it in a dissociative way is not a passive shutdown of perception or of memory. Not knowing is rather an active, persistent, violent refusal; an erasure, a destruction of form and of representation. The fundamental essence of the death instinct, the instinct that destroys all psychic structure is apparent in this phenomenon. . . . The death drive is against knowing and against the developing of knowledge and elaborating [it]. #Quote by Dori Laub
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Judith Lewis Herman
#8. The traumatic moment becomes encoded in an abnormal form of memory, which breaks spontaneously into consciouness, both as flashbacks during waking states and as traumatic nightmares during sleep. Small, seemingly insignificant reminders can also evoke these memories, which often return with all the vividness and emotional force of the original event. Thus, even normally safe environments may come to feel dangerous, for the survivor can never be assured that she will not encounter some reminder of the trauma. #Quote by Judith Lewis Herman
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Kristin Hannah
#9. Don't get me started on the government and its failings with regard to our soldiers. It's criminal. The military tends to equate PTSD with weakness or cowardice. But they're going to have to get on board, especially because troops are doing multiple tours. We need to make the VA and the government start addressing the needs of its soldiers at home. We need to shine a light on this and erase the stigma. This case is important, Michael. Maybe you can help another broken soldier and save some lives. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by David Brooks
#10. Many veterans feel guilty because they lived while others died. Some feel ashamed because they didn't bring all their men home and wonder what they could have done differently to save them. When they get home they wonder if there's something wrong with them because they find war repugnant but also thrilling. They hate it and miss it.Many of their self-judgments go to extremes. A comrade died because he stepped on an improvised explosive device and his commander feels unrelenting guilt because he didn't go down a different street. Insurgents used women and children as shields, and soldiers and Marines feel a totalistic black stain on themselves because of an innocent child's face, killed in the firefight. The self-condemnation can be crippling.

Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Ernst Wiechert
#11. Only pious people believe that hell is in a world beyond. #Quote by Ernst Wiechert
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by L.M. Browning
#12. During the worst of it, onlookers who have learned my story often comment to me that, "All the hardships you suffered were part of a divine plan for your life because something good came from each bad thing." As though a divine presence decided to teach me these great lessons through pain. I am affronted by such a suggestion because it robs me of my accomplishment by removing the element of transcendence.
I don't believe we learn anything from suffering. If human beings inherently learned through suffering, we would be a population of enlightened beings and we're not. We learn from suffering if and only if we manage to transcend our suffering to find meaning in what is otherwise senseless. This process of transcendence is a profoundly human one that imparts the deepest - most lasting - sense of achievement. #Quote by L.M. Browning
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Luis Carlos Montalvan
#13. A few days later, Tuesday quietly crossed our apartment as I read a book and, after a nudge against my arm, put his head on my lap. As always, I immediately checked my mental state, trying to assess what was wrong. I knew a change in my biorhythms had brought Tuesday over, because he was always monitoring me, but I couldn't figure out what it was. Breathing? Okay. Pulse? Normal. Was I glazed or distracted? Was I lost in Iraq? Was a dark period descending? I didn't think so, but I knew something must be wrong, and I was starting to worry ... until I looked into Tuesday's eyes. They were staring at me softly from under those big eyebrows, and there was nothing in them but love. #Quote by Luis Carlos Montalvan
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Britt Collins
#14. After returning home from the Vietnam War in 1967, animals became his refuge from the stresses and horrors of war. Animals had also helped him stay sober for thirty-eight years. When he first met Michael at AA, he told him, "Anyone who's on the down-and-out heals himself with animals. #Quote by Britt Collins
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Mark Goulston
#15. Unlike simple stress, trauma changes your view of your life and yourself. It shatters your most basic assumptions about yourself and your world - "Life is good," "I'm safe," "People are kind," "I can trust others," "The future is likely to be good" - and replaces them with feelings like "The world is dangerous," "I can't win," "I can't trust other people," or "There's no hope. #Quote by Mark Goulston
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by James McGarrity
#16. Don't step off the road --- There might be another one! #Quote by James McGarrity
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Colin A. Ross
#17. Undiagnosed DID patients received incorrect diagnoses of schizophrenia in 25% to 40% of cases in two large series (Putnam, 1989; Ross, 1989), while in one stores 12% and in the other 16% had received electroconvulsive therapy. #Quote by Colin A. Ross
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by ✨Diane Metcalf
#18. Your mother doesn't need a diagnosis for you to determine that your relationship is unhealthy. #Quote by ✨Diane Metcalf
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Alison Miller
#19. Many ritually abusive cults deliberately divide the personality system down the middle of the head, making sure that there is no communication between the two sides. "Left side" parts might be instructed to speak to no one other than the perpetrators. #Quote by Alison Miller
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Paul F. Dell
#20. Finally, those who do not meet the SCID-D-R standard for "distinct identities or personality states," but who do meet the SCID-D-R's other four standards (for DSM-IV's Criterion A and Criterion B) for DID, receive a SCID-D-R diagnosis of DDNOS-1a. #Quote by Paul F. Dell
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Dana Arcuri
#21. Assault survivors respond differently. There's no right or wrong way to react after being sexually abused. The assault can be so overwhelming that we may respond in three ways - fight, flee, or freeze. #Quote by Dana Arcuri
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#22. It's safer for you to stay with the others,' he said.
Safer? He didn't realize.
I was already dead. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Elizabeth Howell
#23. Dissociative Identity Disorder...is initially a useful coping response to an environment which is very difficult to endure. The problem is that dissociative responses-such as switching, blanking out, or going into a trance-become automatic, and, once the original abusive environment has been left behind, are of little use in life and may be detrimental. #Quote by Elizabeth Howell
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Anonymous1234
#24. Waking up there is a numbness, a coldness that you never knew that had existed in you. I guess that's why things in the wild are so tough, you have to to survive such a terrible thing. #Quote by Anonymous1234
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Tracy A Malone
#25. Keep Dreaming – When you have a dream, set goals on how to get there. Working hard for your dreams makes them better when they come true. Heal the PTSD and live the life you deserve. Be a SurThriver. #Quote by Tracy A Malone
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#26. The traumatic stress field has adopted the term "Complex Trauma" to describe the experience of multiple and/or chronic and prolonged, developmentally adverse traumatic events, most often of an interpersonal nature (e.g., sexual or physical abuse, war, community violence) and early-life onset. These exposures often occur within the child's caregiving system and include physical, emotional, and educational neglect and child maltreatment beginning in early childhood

Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Jaime Allison Parker
#27. As his boots walked towards the old station, he felt as though he were hallucinating. Scary apprehension increased the beat of his heart and the sweat upon his forehead was cold. The reality of where he stood created a sinking feeling inside of him.
An old man everyone called Uncle Tucker once owned this place. His sole existence behind the counter all of the time, day and night. He could have been a creature out of a fairy tale, with his long white beard and equally long white hair. Merlin. The overalls and the ball cap perched upon his head, along with the half-smoked cigar with an endless burning orb positioned in his mouth. It made him a fixture in time. He wondered if Tucker would still be alive. Tucker with his endless stories of the 1960s, the Vietnam War, and flower children. A man that never left a country thousands of miles away where bicycles filled the capital. A man who never left those fields where killing occurred. #Quote by Jaime Allison Parker
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#28. It was early in my career, and I had been seeing Mary, a shy, lonely, and physically collapsed young woman, for about three months in weekly psychotherapy, dealing with the ravages of her terrible history of early abuse. One day I opened the door to my waiting room and saw her standing there provocatively, dressed in a miniskirt, her hair dyed flaming red, with a cup of coffee in one hand and a snarl on her face. "You must be Dr. van der Kolk," she said. "My name is Jane, and I came to warn you not to believe any the lies that Mary has been telling you. Can I come in and tell you about her?" I was stunned but fortunately kept myself from confronting "Jane" and instead heard her out. Over the course of our session I met not only Jane but also a hurt little girl and an angry male adolescent. That was the beginning of a long and productive treatment. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Julian Barnes
#29. Because once you had been through certain things, their presence inside you never really disappeared. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Alison Miller
#30. In fact, rather than being "more" than the others, the ANP is generally one that is very limited, with little power in the system, little memory of what happened, and limited energy or emotions. #Quote by Alison Miller
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Mehnaz Sahibzada
#31. Would You Notice Me" is a beautifully intense read. The imagery is engaging...."the Merlot waterfall" and "confetti'd parts" lines for instance, and the the voice of the poem as a whole. #Quote by Mehnaz Sahibzada
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Alison Miller
#32. The first thing you need to know if you are a survivor is that parts of you have probably been trained to create a variety of symptoms and behaviours. Abusers actually train child parts to cut the body, to make other parts cut, to attempt suicide, to create flashbacks by releasing pieces of visual or auditory memories, to create body memories of pain or electroshock, and to create depression, terror, anxiety, and despair by releasing the emotional components of memories to the rest of the personality system. The front person and most of the rest of the system do not know that this is the source of these feelings and behaviours. p126 #Quote by Alison Miller
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Elizabeth Wein
#33. Taran. We go down fighting. #Quote by Elizabeth Wein
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#34. Trust of others is in short supply for many adult survivors, as complex trauma generally involves major relational betrayal. It is, therefore, expectable (although paradoxical) that clients with these histories are predisposed to be mistrustful at the outset of therapy, precisely because of (and in proportion to) the actual trustworthiness of the therapist. When past experiences have thought hard lessons, namely, that one can least afford to trust the people who should be most trustworthy, it stands to reason that confusion about trust results. The therapist must understand and not take offense either personally or professionally and not react judgmentally or defensively. Practically speaking, this involves the therapist being prepared to patiently and empathically respond to active or passive tests or challenges to trustworthiness as legitimate and meaningful communication that deserves a respectful reply in action as well as in words. #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Dissociative Ptsd quotes by Sarah E. Olson
#35. Howard: Sometimes a betrayal can be so subtle that it clouds the whole thing.

Nita: It would have to be a real betrayal. Not like canceling an appointment. It would be like you'd end the relationship in the middle.

Howard: Why would I call it off?

Nita: I don't know! #Quote by Sarah E. Olson
