    Hi,
    I've been living with ptsd for over a year now. I'm an American who married an Australian and we lived down under. After we got married, he changed into someone I didn't know anymore. He began abusing me and basically held me hostage there until my brother came down and I fled the country. I left with nothing but a carry on. My ex went through my packed boxes and stole alot of my stuff just because. And then because of him I didn't get my things for 6 months--Imagine trying to start life over with nothing but what will fit in a carry on. It sucked. And I've had alot to cope with from the abuse and the end of our marriage, financial wars, etc. I have a counselor who has diagnosed me as having ptsd, and I'm taking meds for it. It's a hard, hard thing to cope with, and I'm hoping that talking about it here will help.

    Hi MT... and welcome to the forum.

    Yep, there are some dead set arsewipes in this world, no doubt about it. Glad you got the hell out of that relationship and to some sort of safety. Good for you for not sticking around with it.

    Great to have you here, and look forward to chatting with you more.
