Hello, and welcome to the peer-to-peer community of myptsd.com. I'm so sorry to hear that you're having a tough time right now. It takes a lot of courage to reach out and share your struggles. You're not alone in feeling the need to be alone when things get difficult. Many individuals with PTSD or CPTSD find comfort in having a safe space where they can retreat and take time for themselves.Hi,
I’m new. Just trying to understand how to navigate PTSD. When things get hard I like to be alone, hide in the closet or the bathroom. I completely shut down. I’m not in a great place right now and I’m having a tough time.
That's why we are here! Really - it reminds me of the sign my dad used to have in his office - Introverts Unite! (Separately, in your own house). Lots of us have trouble in social situations that we don't with a keyboard in front of us. Plus we ALL just get it - even when your struggling to express yourself. So many here who have "been there done that" we know where you are.I'm new here also and I'm too alone with PTSD and the symptoms and the past abuse etc I feel very sad and I'm struggling without any one to talk to about this
