Sufferer New and nervous about posting

Hi, I just joined and I guess this is just me saying hello.
I’m very much at the start of my ‘healing’ from past traumas after years of being treated for general anxiety disorder and social anxiety with depression without my history being considered.
Recently (last year) diagnosed with CPTSD and it’s like everything makes some sense now but also the traumatic memories are very much on the surface now.
I have no support outside of therapy twice a week and I feel very alone right now and I’m struggling with day to day life.
I hope i can fit in here ok after a bad experience with other forums.

Best wishes to all!

Welcome to the Forum! I’m so sorry for the reasons that bring you here! Our traumas may be different but our pain brings us together here.

I have been a member for 10 years and can say that you are safe here. Staff members have our best interests in mind if and when they need to step in, and that keeps it safe.

Thank goodness for therapy and good therapists, I wouldn’t be here without them!

Blessings of healing to you!

Welcome. I've been here 6 years and find this to be the best support forum for PTSD. No nonsense allowed here. But a lot of understanding, support and suggestions if you ask for them. We are good listeners if you just want to share what's going on. A lot of threads about everything PTSD related and we even have a lot of fun threads.

Look around the different topics and see what resonates with you. Hope you find this to be a safe place.

Welcome and I hope you find the support you need here. My advice is not to become vunerable here. I did and it hurt! This is my first time posting since then and I just felt responsible to warn you. Take it easy here.

Welcome to the community! 😁

All communities have different personalities, or general overarching character/feels to them, both online & IRL. Not all personalities are suited for all people, the same way not all individuals are going to get on. MyPTSD has been around long enough (since 2005) that personality is very well established.

You can read about that (and much more!) in our Community Constitution

Community Personality​

MyPTSD's personality ranges widely within a candid, empathetic, challenging, yet supportive membership. Diversity is the spice of life, and this community respects diverse opinions. A community philosophy often read here is "use what helps you, and ignore the rest."
