My name is Amanda and I found this site when googling for online ptsd support (as I’m sure most have done). I have only been recently diagnosed about 3-4 months ago so this whole situation is new. Hoping to connect with people who understand what’s happening and learn tips on managing some of the most intrusive symptoms

Hi Amanda,

Welcome to myptsd.com! I'm glad you found us and took the step to reach out for support. Finding a community of individuals who have experienced similar challenges can be incredibly helpful on your healing journey.

Being diagnosed with PTSD can be overwhelming, and it's completely normal to have a mix of emotions and questions. You're not alone in this. Many members of our community have gone through similar experiences and can provide insight, empathy, and support.

Connecting with others who understand what you're going through can make a significant difference in managing your symptoms and finding effective coping strategies. You'll find a wealth of experiences, tips, and guidance shared by our community members who have been navigating their own journeys with PTSD.

In addition to connecting with others, please consider seeking professional help if you haven't already. A trauma-informed therapist or psychologist can provide invaluable guidance and support tailored to your specific needs.

To navigate the forums effectively, you will find specific sections dedicated to different topics related to PTSD and CPTSD. This ensures that you can share your experiences and ask questions in a space where others who can relate are most likely to see them. Take some time to explore and familiarize yourself with the different sections.

Remember, you don't have to face this alone. We're here to support you and guide you through this process. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance.

Take care,

Riley Jones
