    Hello .... There are so many here ... I don't know if I feel sad that there are ....or glad that I somehow found a way that might help me ... help myself. ... My name is Rob and I live in Ontario , Canada ... near the shore of Georgian Bay ... it's a beautful place but it is very isolated .... After moving around the planet for many years , I stopped here about two years ago ... the running had to stop and I am doing somewhat better than I once was but I want to start running again ... I have Complex PTSD ... been dealing with it for 12 years ... and it's been quite a ride .... but somehow managed to keep on living ... my daughter holds me to life more than she will ever know .... She's 17 and lives with her Mom and I'm blessed that things are good there ... I've received a lot of help from many professional people over the years ... spent 6 months as an inpatient for specialized treatment .... EMDR and and so much more ... never did the ECT , but once considered it ... Tried dozens of meds but I do better without them .... I guess my story is not uncommon to anyone here and I hope that we all can find a way to help each other and help ourselves .... Such an absurd illness ... PTSD ....
