Never been diagnosed, but pretty sure I have PTSD or complex PTSD, although I can't be sure. I've survived a number of childhood traumas and some other traumas as an adult. I've experienced different types of flashbacks, although they are not coming, and I have been self-medicating because on top of my existing trauma, my job is very stressful and can expose me to further trauma. my community has very little in the way of mental health resources, and many professionals in my community even have a stigma against people with mental health issues. I'm starting to see how it's taking a toll on me, not having enough support or help. So I have been reaching out to some of my friends, and I was encouraged to come here by a friend who is a member.
