    Other Feeling like my PTSD doesn't count...

    I feel so guilty all the time and like I'm faking it somehow. I was emotionally abused by my narcissistic mother in law while my partner, her son, was battling cancer. The thing is that most of it happened behind my back. I would say 80% of it. I mean the other 20% is bad enough bullying and...

    BPD Can PTSD cause BPD?

    I feel like i'm spiraling again and getting a ton of PTSD symptoms. I am not self-diagnosing as I don't believe in it, but I've been doing a lot of reading on CPTSD and how it shares a lot of the same symptoms as bpd. I've also read about Quiet bpd and it seems pretty accurate only I don't have...
