Psych-K is a technique I read about from Bruce Lipton. Sorry, I don't have links.
Matrix Reimprinting is an advanced form of EFT you might want to look into. It's where you have someone tap on you and talk you through mentally going back to the traumatic event and introduce yourself to your younger self, and offer assistance. Once you get permission, you then tap on your younger self and do the eliminating rounds and then do some positive rounds. I don't have anybody to help me do it, so I can only do what I can do by myself. I have read great results from it, I just haven't done it alone, too scary. Well, I tried what I thought it was, then I read the book and I didn't do what they said, I had done my own version. But it was too scary by myself. I have so much work to do, it's overwhelming. But, thanks to my persistance of posting here about it is a reminder to myself to do it.
I will write you an EFT script, see if that helps.
Even though I never fit in with my family, I am still a great kid
Even though my childhood was one of nightmares, I was still a great kid
Even though I felt alone and abandoned, I was still a great kid
Top of the head: I never fit in with my family
Eyebrow: My childhood was one of nightmares
Corner of eye: I felt alone and abandoned
Under eye: I was locked into a coffin with an embalmed body for a few hours as a way to ensure my silence
Under nose: I _____ (what happened that you were locked in the coffin to keep you quiet about)
Chin: I felt rejected at home
collar bone: I felt rejected at school
Under arm: I felt rejected by my friends
tap wrists together: I felt abandoned
Karate Chop Point:I felt scared, unsafe and alone
TOH: Nobody understood me like my dad
EB: I was born into the wrong family
CoE: I didn't belong in this body
UE: I still don't belong in this body
UN: I hate this body
Chin: I reject this body as mine
CB: It is full of pain
UA: I get pain in my legs
Wrists: I get pain in my back
KCP: I get pain in my neck
TOH: I get pain in my shoulders
EB: I get pain in my arms
CoE: I get pain in my _
UE:I am affraid of accepting this body
Add in some sentences with specific things and events to you if you feel like there are things I missed because I wasn't there. Do this around and around until you get down to a zero. Take a deep breath and drink some water.
Then do the positive
KCP: I have decided to love myself
ToH: I choose to accept my body
EB: Somehow I will find a way to be comfortable in this body
CoE: I choose to be at peace with who I am
UE: I have decided to belong in my family
UN: I choose to love this body
Chin: I choose to feel whole
CB: I have decided to relax and feel at peace here and now
UA: I have decided to love my body
Fill in some more with your choices for you and do this a few rounds.
Then take a big breath and drink a glass of water.
This is taken from the one I wrote for myself for the clean sweep, but I adjusted it to fit what I know about you. The first time I did this, I couldn't even say the words outloud, just sobbed. So, I tapped and read it in my head. Then I started over and said it outloud, still sobbing. I did several rounds until I got it down. I don't measure the SUDS, I just feel it or I don't. then I did the possitive part.
i have had similar problems, n m dealing wid it for the last 7 years, still not cured. bt things hav improved, very recently. so i cn tell u 1st hand experience. plus i took 7 years to go thru almost every exercise avlbl, so i cn tell u what really is working for me.
i ws so out of control n used to gt so impulsive at times that i used to give up the practices i startd. one thing i learnt is that it takes time. u have to continue doing it for 3-6 mnths. obviously eft works instantly, u may try, but then that will b the end. there will be no learning involved. then whatvr trauma u faced, u just suffered from it, and then one day u got over it. or u cn use it as n oppportunity to grow.
if u really wna gt over wid the problems, n grow magnanimously, ill tell u wht u shd study n start practising. 1. sun gazing- by hira ratan manek 2. tratak 3. antarmouna - (satyananda saraswati's writings on antarmouna) 4. sudarshan kriya (art of living).
bt all these exercvises take time to show results. but there is one thing that shows immediate result, as soon as u finish doing it. and it will last for most of that day. it is yoga asanas. they r not just physical exercies, n wen it comes to overall health (not just physique), they shd b the 1st choice. they help in gaining control over the mind. and no matter what the problem is, whether in emotions, feeelings, sensations,. thoughts, imaginations, etc.. its all nothing bt an aspect of mind. so when u start gaining strenght over mind, all problems strt fading....

Please seek profesional medical help with a qualified therapist. PTSD can be debilitating and can make your life a misery.
You have to change your reaction to the situation that is causing you such distress and mental pain. I dont know what your situation is but below is an example of how this can be done. This helped me deal with emotional pain and if you like you can try it.
EXAMPLE: Mary was mugged at gunpoint on her way to work and the situation left her with a fear of walking past the same spot where the mugging happened. Every time she walked past the place her heart would start to race, she woud become short of breath and her hands and body would began to sweat. Emotionaly she would be a wreck. The problem was that Mary had to walk past there to get to her place of work. There was no alternative.
Mary changed her situation arround by going back to the situation in her mind and changing it so that it lost its frightning hold on her. She immagined that the gun was a banana and that her attacker was dressed like a clown. She imagined him with a round red plastic nose and big red clown shoes and colthing. She changed his voice to that of humor and after practicing this way for a few weeks the attack lost it's terror and become quiet funny for she took the attackers power away and made him into a harmless clown. Today Marry has no problem walking past the spot that used to cause her such anguish.
Of course this should be done in a safe enviroment prefereably at home or where you feel at total ease.
If I were you I would seek profesional medical help first and than try some of the other alternative stuff. You never can tell which of these will work for you for we are all different.
Whishing you well...Paulina
