I did around 12 sessions of EMDR and talk therapy after my D. It helped so much. Then I went back for a follow up session after my mother passed away, again - very affective.

I still have triggers, but they don't send me into a spiral. I can recognize them for what they are, I acknowledge them, and put them behind me. They no longer have power over me.

Sending strength and peace to you all.


Even if you can't control the world around you, you are still the master of your own soul.

I had PTSD symptoms for quite awhile after d-day.
I tried a little of everything- De-stressing through yoga, exercise, lots of hot baths. In the early days post d-day when I could not sleep- I would take a bath at 2am!
Going to IC was very helpful. I needed to discuss everything about the trauma of the affair over and over for it to finally lose that hold over me.
I also went for EMDR.

A book that helped me also: Transcending Post Infidelity Stress Disorder by Dr. Ortman.

My FWH had a 5 yr LTA and even though we R after 6 months of separation it wasn't until 4 yrs post d-day that I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It takes a long time to 'get over' infidelity.

If only the WS realized this when they embarked on their affairs.....

Me- BS
Him- WH
Long term marriage
D-day- Jan. 2007

I have PTSD from military sexual trauma. Trust is hard for me with men. Why this betrayal hurts so bad. I have nightmares over and over. Now I am really on edge. Trying to keep it together fir my family

Still in love

I have been reading a lot. And its scary how many symptoms of ptsd that I have! I have no counselor or therapist. I do not have the money or the time. And my general doc is a quack that barely acknowledges my Fibromyalgia. But I suffer from nightmares and difficulty sleeping. Feeling like I can't breathe and my chest hurts sometimes. Sometimes just an overwhelming feeling of fear! I can't stand loud noises or large groups or even people just talking loud. The thought of going shopping makes me sick. Some days I am OK and then even with no triggers I feel like my world just falls apart. I just want to curl up and cry! Is this ptsd?
