How are you getting on now?
I too have just left an abusive relationship, all be it emotional and mental
Look up Narcissist abuse on U-tube. This helped me a great deal with learning the cycle of abuse.
It gave me clairty when i was blinded by love.
The similarities about them giving gifts...
I think I mean in an online dating sense.
I don't really want to go on a first date then have to tell them.
I would rather be rejected before like this is me if you don't like it that's ok, NEXT!
Also in REAL life when a male friend is becoming a little bit more special.
How do you tell someone new you have CPTSD for 23 years?
I don't want to have to go into why I have it.
It makes me sad someone else did this to me and its a burden I carry, a secret I have to hide.
But if you can't accept my PTSD you will never be close to me.
So what choice do I have but to...
Zencat what was the name of the film you watch?

Living with PTSD can be like a living hell on earth.

You're a survivor. Something...
Yes. All has been done, learn dis and Clarion housing were served with a 14 days notice from Environmental health. The rat was reported in 11th Dec 2018 to learn dis and nothing was done. It had spread to my next door neighbor who had to pay for rat removal. Each says it is the other...
I just tried to sleep but I feel like I'm going mad. What was I doing this eve? The truth. For the last 7 years or more the lady who lives below me who has learning disabilities has had a mice infestation. I was emailing the MP with pictures of human feces she has left in buckets in the garden...

Your words resonated with me.
When I look at my ankle I see the 4inch scar my ex left me with.
Some scars don't show on the outside but remain hidden inside us.
I wanted to find something to help you even in a small way. It has helped me so I wanted to share it with you.
My heart goes out to you.
The unconditional love that cats give is beyond measure.
Just been in the garden and my bubba who has pasted should be sitting with me but she's in heaven.
Just started crying the pain is so bad without her.
Do all you can for your baby.
Bubba used to love a ribbon...
The CPTSD on pet loss.
The crazy way.
Ok, so I'm sleeping with my cat's ashes in a box in her cat bed to be near her and wanting to dream of my BUBBA CAT
I've put little lavender bags in her new cremation box and a picture of my grandad who passed when I was 11.
The kindness man that ever...
I'm hurting and crying so much at the moment.
My cat died the 18th January and really struggling with the grief and missing her so badly.
Had her since a stray kitten, lasted nearly 16 years. I've lost my best friend, my only baby.
I don't know how to channel this pain productively.
I have had...
Update. Cleaned out the loft by someone asking on freecycle for donations for the salvation army for their spring fair.
I'm happy to give good stuff away if I know it's going to a good cause.

Thank you, Friday
Stick me where you think is best to get questions answered.
I'm a creative person but a bit of a technophobe, but if I need to put a new battery in my classic mini car and use a spanner I can do
it! Did today! My father taught me well.

To the original poster
Just some ideas that may help you?
I 've learned when I get PTSD rage is to walk away from the situation.
Get away, or I will snap and say something I will regret.
Where ever you are, just walk into any other room, place, garden, just move away.
It saves tearing up...
To the original poster, what got me through in the beginning was the rape crisis line.
They will be busy but keep phoning and they will listen to how you're feeling.
They were a godsend to me.
As for suicide don't let the bastard win.
There are people around you in your life that need you.
I'm having a major panic attack.
Got bathroom and kitchen clean and tidy.
The front room is halfway there.
The bedroom is a bomb site.

Dad is back out of the hospital but still very weak.
I got Bubba cat ashes back.

She walked past my head whilst I was sleeping, I wanted to touch her but couldn't reach.
