Sufferer New here, had PTSD since I was 5!

New Here
Hello there!

I'm Felecula, I'm 22 and I have had PTSD since I was 5 due to Hurricane Katrina. C-PTSD came later from emotional and physical abuse which lasted until I was 11, when I left my primary abuser (my mom) to live with my dad. I was in a toxic, abusive relationship for a year when I was 16-17, and suffered from further abuse by a trusted partner when I was 19. I am now free from all of them. I've been misdiagnosed as schizophrenic in the past due to dissociative auditory hallucinations, diagnosed as acute stress disorder (later PTSD), and major depression. My memory is awful due to trauma. Anyway, I am excited to be here, and hope to heal!

Welcome @felecula, we may have crossed paths during Hurricane Katrina and the following Hurricane Rita. Rita is the one that forced me out of my community as she took everything. We were helping Katrina survivors and didn't know we were next. Lived on the Texas coast.

Glad you found us. A lot of very supportive and understanding people here.

It's entirely possible! I remember being in a shelter in Austin, so you might've seen me! Thank you for the welcome!
