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.

      Hi Marlene,
      I just wanted to say thanks so much for your comments to my posts. They mean a lot to me. I see you live in Tampa. I'll be spending four weeks in Kissimmee this summer on vacation with my husband and daughter. We really love Florida. Thanks again for all the sharing you do on the forum. Take care.

      Hey Marlene, Evie asked me to say hello to you from her. She was planning to leave you a message when she was on here yesterday, was going to leave messages for lots of people really, but got too exhausted, tried to do too much in one day I reckon. So... hope a message from me is OK. Just letting you know your not forgotten, she's thinking about you and hope your well.

      It is fun. And where else can you play with swords and work out a lot of aggressions by stabbing people...legally? LOL

      Marlene, thanks for your support. I so appreciate it. I don't mean to be too overwhelming for people. I am sorry if I have done so. You've been a member here for along time, I'm not sure how to ask this, but I don't want to make others "stay away" because of my intensity of "stuff". Could you share with me how I might better communicate myself with others? I think having heard other people responses to what I posted yesterday causes me to realize I have alot to learn and plenty of growth and self-control i need to put into my life.

      Thanks for hanging in there with me. You've been a member here for a while - How do I perhaps need to communicate my needs better, or should I? How can I share with others and yet not "upset" them at the same time? How can I be honest with myself and my feelings an not hurt others? Thanks for any wisdom or experience you might have. Thanks again for your support. Things are just so confusing and shakey for me right now. Hugs to you too, Marlene:) I wish you a blessed day with peace and strength for the day. :) Lez
