I also want them to know what kind of person he is. even in those cases, I don't go in depth and the details about the abuse. Those are pleasant memories that i would rather not relive

    I also agree with you. I could not talk about this for long time because i felt so ashamed and tried to bury it. Sadly it won't go away by just ignoring it. The fact that i can actually open up and tell my relatives what he did means i'm on the road to healing
    No one knows the nitty gritty of my abuse either, except maybe a few things on here. And the thing is child a molester doesnít just molest one child they go on to molest many many children. That is why we need to speak up.

    A lot of the time people donít understand PTSD is actually physical brain damage. Your brain has actual physical and psychological brain damage. And you donít control the autonomic nervous system that controls you. Think about controlling what youíre doing while youíre asleep thatís how a PTSD brain feels it just does what it does. PTSD needs specific treatments.

    They can show you on MRIs and CT scans actual physical damage of a brain thatís been traumatized. The different chemical signals that the brain gives out can cause some spaces of the brain to be over utilized in some spaces of the brain to be underutilized which will actually cause a physical change in the brain.

    Itís not easy to say oh just donít think about it and it will go away. I tried that approach which led to a complete and utter nervous break down where I was non functional and in a fetal position on the floor . It is how I developed my panic disorder.
