    Relationship Sufferer broke up with me, but leaves door open?

    Honestly, I’ve been on here since January and I haven’t really found any answers as to what to do. I have found answers to what this illness actually is. What I have found is the same stories over and over again, it’s comforting in the sense that there was a tremendous amount of self doubt and...

    General Physical reactions to trauma

    A little follow up, I got to talk to a psychologist about what happened and we quickly and seemingly effortlessly transitioned into my own issues about what other people think about me, I enjoyed it so much I had no hesitation to book another session in a month. Last weekend I was at a big...

    General Physical reactions to trauma

    Both those things did line up for us, we were a great team and in a loving relationship full of mutual growth and common interests. The relationship went 180 when we were specifically told that our relationship may fail because of PTSD, I can’t help but feel that there almost was a self...

    General Physical reactions to trauma

    Yeah that ended up with her down the line nitpicking the white lies to try to get her to calm down and it she blew up even further after going through my iPad. I didn’t have a clue what I was dealing with, earlier on in the relationship I had some success talking her down by addressing what her...

    General Physical reactions to trauma

    I think that’s why it’s so important to talk to a psychologist about what is and what isn’t. This whole thing is so over my head, over most peoples head. Conventional wisdom doesn’t seem to apply because you’re not dealing with rational thought paternal. Open and honest communication and love...

    General Physical reactions to trauma

    Since I’ve split with my sufferer, I’ve been diving into what CPTSD is and how it exhibits itself. Mostly to try to let go of feeling of resentments and guilt about whatever my part in the failure of our relationship. What I’ve found is interesting, comforting and sad. It’s definitely made me...

    Relationship Ex told me yesterday she has CPTSD and I’m abusing her.

    I get what’s happening to you as far as the relationship goes but as far as the reaching out goes… well I can relate to talking to a family member but I was invited multiple times and lived with them and still had stuff in the house, even that went really bad. Therapy for you is a good things...

    Relationship My girlfriend wants space because of physical intimacy anxiety

    This sounds similar to what happened in my past relationship 6 months in. At the time I packed my bags and asked her if she wanted me at her place, because if I didn’t feel welcome I didn’t want to be there. She was being distant and not communicative but perked up with when her friend called...

    Relationship Seeing a therapist to deal with the fallout.

    I understand what your saying, I am doing this for me. Not having much understanding of CPTSD for both of us caused a lot of hurt and confusion. I don’t want to continue on with life holding resentments so getting an understanding of that dynamic I think is important. This person was in my life...

    Relationship Seeing a therapist to deal with the fallout.

    Hello everyone, I’ve set up appointment with a therapist to understand the effects of that CPTSD has on the downfall of a strong relationship I was in. A year and a half ago I got into a relationship and noticed that my partner has symptoms of PTSD, reoccurring nightmares, night terrors...
