Understanding my traumas

Community Member

Hi I’m very new to this forum. I’m just reaching out to ask anyone how they worked out what there past traumas are or are from so they can move heal and move forward. I know I’m trigged and my cup is full right now with life but I just am un sure what is triggering it all. How do I find this out.

Hi there, 

Thank you for your post and a big welcome to our community here on the forums. We can imagine how confused and alone you might be feeling, and we’re glad you were able to open up to this community, many of whom may be able to relate to what you’ve been going through. 

We can hear you are trying to work through some trauma and wanted to offer some support. Please know you can talk to Blue Knot about this on 1300 657 380, every day between 9-5 (AEDT). Their counsellors are experienced in working with people who have experienced complex trauma. They also have some resources on their website which could be useful to visit, particularly the pages on Survivors Self Care. 

The Beyond Blue helpline is here for you as well, on 1300 22 4636, or via our webchat or email here. It can make a real difference having someone to talk to especially in moments of distress or when you are feeling triggered.  

Thank you again for your courage and strength in sharing your story. It might take some time for our kind community to spot your post, but we’re sure they will soon be here to offer their support and understanding.   

Kind regards,
