PTSD and socks

May 28, 2018 - 12:46 -- Admin

If you're putting socks away or trying to put them on then you will drop them. Try to consciously grip the sock, tell yourself to clutch, as you maneuver the sock. If you have mobility issues as well, and you're trying to put on a sock, then, yes, you will drop them. I have to splay a sock open with an outstretched fingers then slip it over my pointed toes whilst braced within a door frame. I had to do that before I got PTSD; with the PTSD it's a lot more challenging.

You will drop them. Consider gripping them when you pick them up and consciously staying  hold of them.But they will drop. It will be irritating—especially if you also have physical issues that make it hard to bend. Picking them up may not be guaranteed on the first attempt; try to be cool with that.Also if due to circumstances of house design a key rack is above the kitty litter then, yes, you will drop them into the kitty litter. This has been "Fun with PTSD".

Bled into a slipper

I could see a bright shein of blood on the back heel part of one of the good brown slippers, from a foot skin picking session that had gone too deep. I'm reminded it's a dumb habit, picking at the body, that can cause clothing or footwear damage ... from blood that shoild be inside the body.The urge to painfully haul up a leg into pole position to idly pick at my foot skin is screaming at me. It's like any addicition; I want to and need to feed it.
