    Hi everyone,

    My Name is Shaz and i am a multiple rape and child abuse survivor from Australia. I have been in therapy for years but have not as of yet been officially diagnosed with PTSD so i guess I'm just checking this out because something doesn't feel right. I got diagnosed with agoraphobia and have been having horrible flashbacks and anxiety attacks since the latest assault. Hopefully it will help to talk about my experiences with people who "get it".

    - Shaz

    HI Shaz,

    Welcome to the forum....Yes people here actually do "Get it" We don't look at each other like they have 3 heads either. We don't use the phrase..."Oh Christ, just get over it will you."

    What you will find here is sympathy, empathy, caring, fun, answers, and questions..Yes and an occasional kick in the arse if needed too ...So join in...

    Wendy

    Hey Shaz, welcome to the forum. What Wendy said... except I do the kick in the arse bit usually.... just comes naturally to me I guess. :) Seek out a trauma expert IMO and see what they have to say.
