Peer support subsequent to trauma contributes to full recovery

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- including complex trauma (cPTSD) -- is debilitating, breaking down the body through anxiety and stress, and it poses a significant suicide risk in sufferers. MyPTSD seeks to help and inform those who are directly or indirectly affected by these conditions through peer-to-peer support and educational resources.

It takes a brave and stupid person to make my daughter feel badly about herself. Warning: Don't mess with this mama bear! Jun 27, 2012

      I saw Judo in your screen name. Did you do Judo?
      My dad owned a dojo so I started really young and didn't stop until a short stint on the Fort Bgagg Judo team. You?

      Hey There, I just wanted to apologize for attacking you a few months back and all of that. That is not who I am. That withdrawal was crazy and well, I'm really sorry for the things I said.

      I like your profile picture. I like the way it explains how rain can do two things- It can be negative by making you wet, but also positive by making flowers grow. :D

        Thanks. I also look at it as a reminder that even when things seem dark, dreary or hopeless a beautiful or happy life is still not out of reach.

      I think you are amazing catjudo! Protecting your daughter the way you do and modelling this behaviour to other people you are break the bonds of intergenerational child sexual abuse. You must be very pleased and proud of yourself. I am impressed. I wish I had some one in my life as a child who is 10% the parent you are to your daughter.

      Hello. Uh, can you tell me what I did wrong? I didn't intend to modify or alter the text/format, but it seems that I did somehow. I copied it from Word, since I'm having problems typing in the forum. Did I "auto" do that without me knowing? Yes, newbie. :) Just trying to understand my mistakes. Your help would greatly help. :)

        Archangel, please ask this in the help section. Thanks!

      Can you please tell me who to contact about my story silenced no more? I need it removed if it is re-posted or gets out public from the rules I read you are going to get me killed by the very person I wrote about and has been after me. I am also offended you want to send me notice about my grammar well I not only have PTSD I have TBI. I am disabled and have vision loss..

      I also want to point out sending a note threatening to suspend their account if they don't use proper grammar is very rude. I can't find a way to even start a conversation with you, and this message is too long to post here. So I am breaking it up into several posts as there needs to be a way to respond to someone who send you a message!

        As the notice said, if you have a question about the notification you can ask it in the Help Desk Forum.

      I know you didn't write it, and it is automated, but hey--it doesn't sound very nice. My question I wanted to ask--that I was unable to ask because you can't reply to those moderator notices--was what was wrong my my grammar? I know how to use punctuation and capitlization. I want to know what this issue was on this thread you sent me a notice about.
    17. evergreen
      I got a notice from you about basic grammar, and it could not be replied to. Not such a great idea IMO--not being able to reply to a moderators notification. The notice was threatening me on if I didn't straighten out my grammar, I could be suspended from this site.

      I received an email from you that my first post ever on this website violated "rule 9." I have read rule 9 and in no way did my post violate it, or any other rule. It took me a lot of courage to come to this forum. Receiving a harsh email was not what I needed and triggered my PTSD.
      1. catjudo
        As it said in the PC, if you have questions you can ask those in our Help Desk forum. There was a link to that forum in the PC.

      I can't stop thinking about people doing bad things to me. I was in Desert Storm and have 10% for ptsd, but it has gotten worse lately. I pass people at work and see images of them trying to hurt me. I have no one to talk to about this and don't know what to do.
      Could someone please help me?
