    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Hi everyone, been busy this morning and reading your messages. Yeah, I grew up from a family that argued a lot and I always thought it was normal behaviour in long term relationships. However, when my ex-wife left me years ago I did learn there are certain levels of arguing that are...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Hi Joey, If she refuses to see counselour then I guess that is an unfortunate end of the road. She's not a person who is opposed to therapy as a solution. In fact, her children already are in therapy and she was herself. Even back when she was getting ready to leave her ex-husband she...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    The more I think about this I think my next step, regardless if she decides to communicate with me before the end of this week is counseling. I feel that even if she does decide to finally have a conversation about this I don't think she will be OK. I'm anticipating there will be boundaries...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Hi Friday, I understand what you are saying, with mixing past and present and how this can be dangerous. Considering how emotional she is right now I don't think now is the best time to set a boundary. As much as I would like to text her and explain that I feel awful that I upset you and your...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Hi Friday, I agree it's unbelievable from her. I promise you there was no screaming and calling each other "mother f*ckers". I didn't call her kids brats, in fact her kids weren't even mentioned in this simple 3 minute argument. Actually, I love her kids I've never had a reason to think her...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    So I did hear something again last night. This time she told me "I'm still really upset at you. I just can't believe you would upset the 10 year old like that. :( :'(. I'm still too upset to talk to you. It's just unbelievable." All I could really respond to this was "I know you are hun...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    You're right. It's just hard. I want to be able to talk about this with her and move past this and get on with building our lives together, but being patient and not having an impulsive reaction to her lack of communication is very hard. This is the longest I think we've ever gone. Usually...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Just updates to this.... I did hear from her randomly yesterday in the afternoon while I was busy. She texted "I'm less mad, but I'm still upset." and I thought about it for a couple of hours while I worked on other stuff and responded back with "Okay hun, sorry been busy. I'll be here when...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    OK, I'm sure others here know it can be very trying sometimes coping with your partner who needs time to sort it out. I've been going through and reading others stories and I'm very fortunate she has not "shut down" (as I refer to it unsure the proper term) for multiple weeks at a time. I...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Hi sweetpea, Thanks for the reply. OK, ill keep this in mind. I do have a lot of project blame and guilt to myself on this particular incident. I just want to be clear if you guys think this situation that I am in the wrong and its grounds to end the relationship on her end. I feel this is...

    Relationship GF of 2.5 years has CPTSD and I triggered her

    Hello, My girlfriend and I have been together for about 2 and a half years now. She came from a toxic relationship of almost 15 years with an ex-husband who has NPD. They had three children together (ages 10, 8, and 6) and she left him 5 years ago. She was managing her CPTSD with therapy for...
