I feel dizzy at reality. o_O Feb 25, 2014

My middle initials are AJ, so I guess that's what I'd like to be called on here. I wouldn't mind being called that in real life but I've only had those initials since a therapeutic name change fairly recently and it's not caught on yet. I'm female. I'm 24. I've been diagnosed formally with PTSD.
I have a dogwho's very affectionate from big cuddles to just sitting near by for support - I never trained him to do that, he just does.
I suffered a lot of abuse in my childhood and early teens at the hands of my father, his drug dealer and a friend of theirs to my recollection, but mostly his dealer - that's the most I've shared with anyone outside of my household. I still only remember parts of it and lots is fragmented or just segments of events. Diagnosed with PTSD on Monday the 4th of February 2013 after 6 months of searching for someone to diagnose me correctly - I do not have Aspergers (previous diagnosis). I was also bullied with life-threatening events occurring repeatedly, however I am still struggling to accept this as traumatic - mostly because of my constant comparing it to the rest of my abuse. I want to make a healthy progress away from my past using therapy and I want to one day be able to lead as normal a life as I'm capable of. I don't want to be isolated anymore. But I'm not ready to throw myself back into the world. Far from it, but I'm ready to make steps which is the biggest step of all.
That's all for now.
