    Keep being dumped by therapists

    I am literally too depressed to get out of bed + work right now. I can't do on my own. I think you're missing the point of how sick I am. I have been trying on my own and with support for 15 years and I have wanted to die and feel exhausted most of the time throughout that. What I want Is an...

    Keep being dumped by therapists

    I really shouldn't have to say no queerphobia/ discrimination in my OP. If your CC doesn't support queer people then this isn't a safe space for us. Simple.

    Keep being dumped by therapists

    excuse me? I mention my sexuality and you assume that I'm obsessed with politics and not engaging with healing. This is meant to be a supporters forum not a place of discrimination. Check yourself. Due to NHS negligence and waiting lists I was forced into private therapy in 2020 after being...

    Non Triggering TV/Movies

    Anyone got any light weight TV/ Movies they'd recommend? For me I avoid romance/ trauma content. Which can be hard as everything is written that way, Let me know what you've found that you enjoy. x For 'safe' TV I love Bob's Burgers, Golden Girls (though it does contain romance).

    Did EMDR largely resolve your CPTSD and if so, how long did it take?

    No, certainly not. I had one trauma target which we finished but trying to do zoom EDMR online over lockdown with a therapist who wasn't very supportive, after 10 months of sessions she stopped seeing me because I was dealing with suicidal ideation she didn't investigate. [I have complex PTSD...

    Keep being dumped by therapists

    Hey guys, I'm back with no progress sadly, I experienced huge amounts of malpractice and negligence at The Tavistock and Portman and they kicked me out for making a complaint and I lost my therapy because of that. I am exhausted and I am burnt out, currently speaking to a therapist over zoom...

    Masturbation, sexual trauma and intrusions

    Yes at times I've tried that but I think I find imaginary people are less tangible so the intrusions can still replace them sometimes, But last night I tried focusing on making a situation where I felt safe with my 'fantasy date', IE us being in a loving relationship and I found that helped a lot.

    Masturbation, sexual trauma and intrusions

    Thank you for sharing guys. I think yes including a safe context and 'partner' in my fantasies may help. I just don't like the idea of fantasing over people who wouldn't be into it! Haha.

    Masturbation, sexual trauma and intrusions

    Hi guys, I've got C Ptsd and primarily my intrusions come within sexual spaces because I've suffered lots of sexual/ relational abuse. Has anyone found a sucessful way with dealing with these to reduce them/ help them go away quicker? I find when I'm dating someone its easier as I can focus on...

    'Trouble with relationships'

    Hey thanks for writing. At the moment what I have is a lot of instability, I'm a free lance artist renting, living with a friend. I try so hard to date, I've had times when I date obsessively but I've kicked that, I also am so much better at recognising red flags and normal behaviour and knowing...

    'Trouble with relationships'

    Im exhausted and sad and I've been fighting this CPTSD for years and so many therapists refuse to work with me within a framework of recovery and at 30 I just feel exhausted and devastated. I feel like my abuser has won, I can't keep a relationship, my mother and I aren't even talking and...
