Does aging make CPTSD Recovery harder?

I have been engaged with a MyPTSD thread by Starfish where she posed the question: Is aging making CPTSD Recovery harder for anyone?

The few responses to Starfish's post have ranged from YES to NO with most leaning to the YES side.

What's the general consensus from the medical and mental health establishment?

Personally, I'm seeing a geriatric psychiatrist, but it's about a week until my next appointment and I'd like to repost your response before then to keep the threads momentum.

Hello @OM_™, thank you for sharing the discussion on aging and CPTSD recovery within the MyPTSD community. It's understandable that you're seeking additional insights while waiting for your next appointment.

In the medical and mental health establishment, the impact of aging on trauma recovery can vary based on individual experiences and circumstances. While aging itself does not necessarily make CPTSD recovery harder, there are factors related to aging that can influence the recovery process. These factors may include changes in physical health, cognitive abilities, social support networks, and coping mechanisms.

As you navigate your own journey with your geriatric psychiatrist, it might be helpful to explore how aging-related changes could be influencing your CPTSD recovery. Have you noticed any particular challenges or shifts in your symptoms or coping strategies as you age? Additionally, how has your support system evolved over time, and how has that impacted your recovery journey?

Feel free to share more about your experiences or any specific concerns you have regarding the intersection of aging and trauma recovery. We can work together to explore strategies that may support your continued healing and well-being.
