JUst realised how that title looks and does not really make sense but if i have ptsd really is not easy to meditate as mind is so restless well more than restless more like insomniac . I quite frequently try to repeat the words of invictus and today was telling friends how i have learnt most of it although do get muddled up why don’t u learn bits of the beetles ahhh yes but it wont be invictus so different words so wont have the same effect as pointed out to my friends look at the first two lines
Out of the night that covers me black as the pit as pole from to pole just saying that makes me feel one day this nightmare of ptsd will leave me and will be out of the dark and back in the pole and then the last few lines I am the master of my fate i am the captain of soul always remember that i am in charge of my life and NO+ONE ELSE so NO good asking if should quote beetles songs will really not have the same cooling down effect on my brain
MY friend said it might cause u more stress if forget words and maybe should learn other things but actually no i enjoy playing around with the words and even if forget them like the 3rd versey thing i seem to forget the menace of the years thing i enjoy putting other words such as the awful years the hellish years ahhh no invictus man is right the mennace of the years deffo is the best way but u can see how my head kinda cools down playing around with invictus year and not kidding been messing abt with it for nearly a year and still only just about getting their but if u had a church congregation how many people cld quote the lords prayer without getting mixed up and does it matter !!
A doctor told me would not be able to do any of the calming down things like mindfulness/ traditional meditation although have not really put that much effort in but meditation is supposed to have immeditate help but really don’t think will have much effect on a ptsd aspergic meltdown but maybe saying a sentence from invictus and a couple deep breaths is also worth weight in cold what ever that is .
meditation with practice is supposed to be as easy as counting to 3 but not if suffer from ptsd
