Coping and Healing for Protective Mothers
Most, if not all Protective Mothers suffer from PTSD (‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder‘), as a result of dealing with Domestic Terrorists who are trying or have succeeded in unjustifiably interfering with their Motherhood. A better term would be PTSI, ‘Post Traumatic Stress Injury,’ as the ‘Disorder’ part is clearly on the side of the Domestic Terrorists. After all, no conscious Human Being would intentionally aim to physically and/or psychologically, emotionally, legally and financially torture a Mother, unjustifiably depriving her of contact with her Child(ren), and thus inflicting (even more) abuse on the Child(ren), with the ultimate aim of destroying the Mother. However, in order to facilitate your online search on this topic, we will stick to the conventional terms of PTSD and CPTSD.
At some point some Protective Mothers may come to the understanding that their fight to retain or regain custody of their Child(ren) in order to Raise and Protect them in Safety and Peace is taking much longer than they first anticipated, if they can even accomplish this. The vicious nature of Domestic Terrorism that includes the players in the Family Court arena who, like parasites, financially feed off of torturing Protective Mothers until her Children are 18 is brutal and relentless. The ongoing barrage of conflicts, motions, and hearings, that are continued and smeared over many years and even decades, also known as “the drag,” while missing out on her Kid(s) turn the PTSD in to C-PTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
This page addresses ways to cope and regain psychological and physical health, so we can Survive through the endless years of torture, and hopefully rebuild our lives and maybe even possibly have moments where we can Thrive again. Survival is crucial, as we need to stand strong against the avalanche of attacks on our Motherhood, to turn the tide and fight back; also to inform, inspire, unite and fight with other Protective Mothers, to empower ourselves and to be a solid Beacon of Hope for our Children, who, no matter how stockholmed they are, may, one day wake up to the toxic venom they’ve been fed, and come home.
The following Coping and Healing suggestions are based on informal interviews with veteran Protective Mothers. Some coping and healing suggestions are conventional, others maybe unusual, and some are very much out of the box. Not all methodologies listed below may be suitable for you. Much scientific research results regarding (C)PTSD are based on combat veterans. However, some forms of therapy that are effective for traditional war veterans, such as Exposure therapy (EMDR), are not always necessarily suitable for survivors of, for example, sexual abuse. So make sure that the help you seek is suitable for your individual situation. We urge you to do your own research based on these suggestions and take full responsibility for your own Coping and Healing Journey.
Take time to learn to cope and hopefully heal your (C)PTSD; it is an unpredictable process that cannot be rushed. And on that note, if (C)PTSD is currently crippling you from taking actions along a healing path: so be it. Fighting against this condition can simply be too much of an uphill battle for the time being. Sometimes coping means breathing in and breathing out, you know? Whatever the depths of your despair may be, know that YOU MATTER! You matter to your kids, to us, and to this world. Your presence on this planet is crucial! Your very existence and refusal to bow down to the horrific patriarchal system we find ourselves in is exactly what is making that system crumble, bit by bit. So thank you for being you. Just the way you are. We know what you’re going through. We LOVE you. We CARE. Please don’t give up!
