    Hello all. I found this site by chance, and it seems like a good place.

    In 1984, my mother was murdered by my stepfather. I was seven. I went to live with my uncle, but he put me in a pediatric mental hospital and gave me up to the state when I assaulted his son. That was when I first diagnosed with PTSD. After several months in the hospital, I spent time in foster care, was adopted, and seemed to live a normal life. But there was always something, well, wrong.

    Over time, things have gotten better, then worse, then better, and on and on. Over the past several months, they've gotten BAD. After a failed marriage, extreme financial problems, another failed relationship, severe suicidal thoughts, a few superficial wrist cuts, and several days in an unlocked facility, I am realizing that I need to do something. The only problem is, I have no idea what to do.

    So that brings me to here. Thanks for having me.

    Hi Gradon, welcome to the forum. There is certainly plenty of knowledge here, so some deep reading no doubt. Jump in and wet your feet, so to speak. Learning about ourselves is the biggest task at hand, because nobody likes to dig within themselves, fearing what we just might find. Its a painful process, but well worth the effort considering the options by not doing so.
