Hello.. I'm in my late 40s. About eight years ago, I was diagnosed with PTSD from being abused my entire life and have been regularly seeing a trauma therapist since then. Recently, a traumatic event happened to me, triggering my core abandonment issues that I had been slowly working with my therapist on for years. It's like Pandora's Box was accidentally opened and I can't close it. Now I have to deal with a lifetime of trauma pretty much all at the same time, it feels like. I had never been triggered this badly before. If I didn't have those years of trauma therapy and tools, I likely would not be here right now. I am also attending a support group twice a week which is helping. I'm hoping this site will help me as well.
