I’d really suggest you start a thread with this post. It’s an incredibly interesting / useful question... but most members won’t read it, and many if not most of the few who do, won’t respond in a thread that is lookin to connect with others from a specific trauma background, so as not to hijack it or step on toes.Is it normal to feel that you have lost a part of you are? After a traumatic event no one can ever be the same. I keep asking myself am I a wiser person because of what I went through or did it kill a part of my soul. I was reading some stuff that said to overcome ptsd you have to become a whole new person. Reading that I'm thinking, well I liked who I was before, I didn't want to change that, maybe tweak a bit but the overall I was quite satisfied with it.
