    My name is Nicole.
    I am Becvan's friend. We been through a lot in the last twenty years. She had but was not diagnosed with PTSD when we met. I'm here to support her in what ever way possible, to understand more about what she has and to help by explaining what works for us as far as dealing with the chaos that comes with this disorder. I have a diploma and am just one thesis shy of my master's in human psychology so to say the least I find humans interesting and Bec's life has been very interesting to say the least. I have become the only "family" that she can rely on without fail. I am one of the few that accept her disorder. Her real family doesn't and I've dealt with them on plenty of occasions(crazy all of them). Bec and I first met when she was fourteen. I've come to understand that sometimes I need to leave her alone and other times its quite obvious that she needs a gentle push. It's taken a long time to figure what needs to be done when and I still don't have it right all the time LOL . Thanks for reading.

    As Bec and I first butted heads here I know she can be a pain (never me hee hee)... But I came away with a good friend who helps me too. I am glad she has you.
