Hi everyone.

I was diagnosed with PTSD in 2011, after 20 years of therapy in which I was undiagnosed and mostly untreated. My mother was abusive to me (she died when I was 13, and I was raised by my dad) and I experienced a tremendous amount of bullying at school, about which the teachers did nothing. I've also been in several abusive relationships, both romantic and platonic.

Since being diagnosed, I've actively sought out people who are vocal in their support and who understand that this…

I'm new here
