I am a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Re-integrating Socially Coach. I help people who have been treated for or are in treatment now for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder make goals and take steps to get them back into society. A question may be "How do I relax when I am feeling hypervigilant at a social gathering. Answer " First Ground yourself using grounding techniques learned in therapy. Then use your breathing to slow you body downBreathe from the diaphragm. Take slow steady breaths until the feeling passes. If the feeling persists it is wise to leave the group.
I have been treated for PTSD and have 20 years of knowledge of how to create a new social life for a person going through anxiety about social interactions. I have become an active member of Society and no longer look at myself as just a mere PTSD Survivor. I am now a Social Thriver.

This is a hard subject to like but I love seeing someone healed or healing from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder go from being a wallflower to a social butterfly. A person does not have to live as a PTSD Survivor they can become a Thriver.
Every day I will learn something new from my clients. I plan to start an active support group for this problem area in the County that I live. People with problems of being shy or introverted can also learn and enhance their lives through the group.
That during the therapeutic process of healing PTSD Social Interaction is not given much thought.
We have many veterans living on the streets homeless because they do not have proper social skills.
