    Hi. My name is Sheree. I am 35 and have had PTSD since the age 7 or thereabouts, as a result of childhood sexual abuse. I wasn't diagnosed until the age of 24. It's something that I've come to get used to, over the years. I'm sick of it. I wish that I could wake up without it. Yes. I have a lot of frustration and deep seated anger still to get through. I'm lucky that I have a very supportive husband to help me. That's about it.

    Nice to meet you.I am also 35 years old and was dx at 30. I don't think I thought of it that way until coming to this site but mine would have started at about 10. It is a long time to live like this but at least I know why now, maybe not so crazy afterall.

    Hello Sheree!

    Welcome. Very glad you are here. I too am a survivor of childhood and youth sexual abuse. There are quite a few of us here with long term PTSD due to being a survivor. Though I still struggle,this forum has been and continues to be such a wonderful help to me. There are many caring and supportive people. Good fortune to you on your healing journey.
    Love & Care

    my heart goes out to you

    We have a great deal in common and you will learn from many people here that anger is frustration and that coupled with fear and anxiety keeps us in a state of nerve wracking states of mind. It is not easy but you are alive and your here and that is a really good thing. Love, map9
