Peer support subsequent to trauma contributes to full recovery

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- including complex trauma (cPTSD) -- is debilitating, breaking down the body through anxiety and stress, and it poses a significant suicide risk in sufferers. MyPTSD seeks to help and inform those who are directly or indirectly affected by these conditions through peer-to-peer support and educational resources.

    Hello everybody,

    Just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. My name is Rik and I have been diagnosed with PTSD, Major Depression, Anxiety Disorder and Panic Attacks.

    Came across this website a few days ago but finally got the courage to register and post. Guess I'm here just to feel like I belong to something and not be alone anymore. It's very difficult for me to be in social environments so I thought trying to be apart of an online community might help me with interacting with others.

    Anyway, that's my little hello to the world. Thanks for having me.

    Rik
