Sufferer Hi - I’m here!


Hi everybody. I was recently diagnosed with C-PTSD. I had a mental block on my time in iraq, 2004. Which i broke when i accidentally called my CO because i recognized his face on facebook on an account that i made to specifically look for my old unit when i was trying to talk to the va about my physical symptoms. I thought i had gulf war syndrome, thats funny to me now. I have been shut down since 2021. Covid, life stuff, abuse. It has been tough couple of months not being disassociated any more. I dont even know if thats the right term. Legitimately, Reading your comments help alot. They make me feel like im not alone. I just wanted to say hi and let you know i was here. @Friday I feel you brother.
