  1. I want to chronicle this journey in a way that is not enmeshed with all my other comments of my life. I will go over my treatment, and research and my steps toward freedom. To All those who suffer. May you get well.
  2. I don't know if I should bring it up to my family doctor or my therapist... I brought it up to my therapist in passing and we didn't expand on that, but I feel like I'm having physical effects from the memories of the past year in particular. I believe my husband is narcissistic and was emotionally abusive to me... I feel like I should feel relief during the divorce process, but I continue to have disturbed sleep, feeling like I'm back in the moments of being bullied, and extreme fear at even seeing his family members texting to check on me. Also, I lost about thirty pounds before leaving my h
  3. My mom recently broke her wrist and back in a fall. I want to go see her this weekend. However , when I even come to think of it I just feel like I need to throw up . It reminds me of one of my very first memories. Unfortunately one of my first memories is of abuse to my mother and myself. When I was four my mother had fallen down the basement steps carrying my brother. She had broken her tailbone . She sent me running to go find my dad . Unfortunately at the time he was screwing the neighbour and kept telling me to “F off stupid , you’re bugging me. “ I remember feeling so helpless an
  4. I have been with the same man for 3 years. He was so sweet and loving and giving when I met him.most of the time he still is. He is a veteran with ptsd and a traumatic brain injury so sometimes his emotions can be a little extra than usual. We live with his parents and I don't really get along with his mom. They say it's because I don't communicate. Anyway, last night we were all sitting together and he made some stupid joke about me having a dark side to my personality. His mom agreed and they both had a nice laugh about it. This morning I asked him not to make jokes about me if he could help
  5. I don't know where to start. My ex-girlfriend left me a year ago after being together for 1 year. I've known her for almost 3 years though. Um and it's just been terrible. She just one day decided that she wasn't ready to be in a relationship anymore with me and texted me "I don't love you anymore and I'm breaking up with you." Before she sent this text, we hadn't seen each other for 2 weeks, I thought she needed a break so I let her just text me and not see each other. She was stressed with her school. Later, I found out she was distancing herself from me so it would be easier to leave me. Sh
  6. I am 21 and my boyfriend is 29 . He has PTSD from his childhood from his mother . Lately he has been lashing out and trying to dump me cause his mother is making our relationship difficult .

  7. Please help... A few years ago this girl i had hung out with a couple times wanted me to go to a party with her. It was a sunday and i started a new job the next day and told her 10 times i did not want to go. She guilted me into it and i went. She promised we would leav at 6pm. We did not get home unitl 3:00 am!!!!! I had asked her repeatedly since it started to get dark to go. I was livid, i strted a job the next day and she did not care. At this party i had too much beer and ended up punching and spitting at the girl who drove me there. Finally we got in the car and left. Ho
  8. So a little background me and my husband met three months before we got married we believe in love at first sight, yes I know that most of stuticts show we won't last but we're trying to prove the odds wrong. We just recently celebrated our one-year anniversary we're both in the military I've recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and he has PTSD. I don't understand why after he comes home from work he immediately gets on his computer games doesnt even acknowledge me and plays them nonstop and when it's the weekend forget it I never see him. He is constantly on his games constantly playing
  9. I think I have to get this out of me. I’m struggling. I’ve met a wonderful woman, she is kind, generous, caring and sweet. She ticks so many of the boxes it’s unreal. Plus she likes me (!), and not only is she willing to accept me for who and what I am but also accepts that my past is less than savoury. She is a wonderful woman, and far more than I deserve. Trouble is, I can’t stop thinking of my ex. I was with a troubled girl, named T. She had issues, she was suffering from PTSD, taking anti-psychotics and other drugs. She was also self-medicating with alcohol, weed and the occasi
  10. I am waiting on compensation which should have been here by now and was to be used to help me move interstate to go and study what I enjoy. The comp has been delayed and I just don't know what to do. I have PTSD and where I live is very isolated and I have NO friends because there are no like minded people. No matter what I consider doing I feel utterly terrified and am gripped by almost paralysing anxiety. I am lonely here but it is peaceful in nature. I have been so depressed here though that I haven't even been able to do work that I once found easy. The thought of moving scares me. Wi
  11. For those with PTSD do you have troubles with other people’s displays of crying and or anger in public? It makes me very very very uncomfortable and I have to flee.
  12. Guys, well ladies... I need help. I'm hoping that someone can help. My partner and I want to start a family next year. But, how on earth do I go for a natural birth? I freak out when things go on down below (strangers/people I don't trust).. I had an abortion earlier this year, and I dissociated through the internal examination (was extremely very early). I don't want to dissociate, or freak out, or not be me. But I also do not want a c section, unless of course it's an emergency. I know a few members have children and ptsd, so I'm really hoping for advice. My gp has told me I
  13. This is short message so sorry for lack of detail. My partner and i have a very up and down relationship. Since begining they admitted being abused as a child. However recent 6 mths they have blamed there temper/ mood swings/ emotional abuse on having post traumatic stress disorder. Here is the query all info i read states yes to all the above symptoms happe ing but i can find no material that supports these symptoms beimg directed only at one person. For example my partner was anger and emotionally abuse for an entire morning we were due to have dinner at my mothers. When we arriv
  14. I made a post last night talking about how I (19) and my boyfriend (37) are having problems (side note: he's a veteran, so this contributes to his PTSD) I explained in the post that a main problem right now is him being hung up on his ex. he mentioned that he still has pictures of her, and other things. when i asked him about the tape, he said he kept it for keepsake. and when i asked about the pictures, he was kinda defensive and asked, "yeah, why wouldn't i have pics of my ex girlfriend?". they broke up four years ago and I've been dating him for eight months, and I'm supposed to move in
  15. Hey there, I'm really struggling with the situation my relationship is in right now and could use some advice from the outside.. My boyfriend and I have been together 11 month and live together as well. We are in our 40's and somewhat mature I would think lol. He has been diagnosed with PTSD years ago and is struggling with depression and anger and so on. He lost his job back in April and was unemployed since. I have been supportive emotionally and financially all along. He was really depressed about not having a job and would lay on the couch days at a time sometimes but he was trying to f
  16. Hello So I’ve been dating this guy for 18 months. He was wonderful and loving when we met. Anyway he’s separated from his soon to be ex wife and signed the divorce papers just recently (he always was separated we weren’t an affair or anything). Anyway in the last 10 months he changed. He became cold and hard on me the more she became vindictive. He’s got ptsd and struggles mentally and she’s been playing on his illness and pulling on his heart strings and then throwing him away and then trying to reel him in again. He’s mentally heading for a break down and he’s telling me he doesn’t know wha
  17. To start, I'm not perfect. I had my own flaws, mostly I suffered from PTSD and major anxiety. I had anger issues but for the most part my partner kept me calm and happy. Here's the latest: My ex girlfriend left me in June after a year together. We did so well together. Rarely did we argue. I need to admit my faults first. I mistreated our dog one night, I got upset and hit her a few times and that really made my ex look at me differently. That was about February when that happened. I was Baker Acted in March due to depression. I said suicidal things, suffered a lot from my PTSD and just cou
  18. Greetings all, I’ve posted on here before, but a little background about me: 28 year old male, college educated, independent, single, just an average dude living my life. I don’t quite know how to convey my issue, so I’ll do my I have noticed I’ve had a problem with intrusive thoughts for years, and I get disturbed really easily. In most cultures, it is acceptable to hit children in order to punish them. My parents did that when I was growing up, but they never used objects. Both of my parents have hit me hard on my face in the past; I still to this day have nightmares about it. I d
  19. Last year, myself and my family went through an incredibly traumatizing event. My mom started dating a guy who we had known as a family friend for 8+ years. At first, it was a huge sigh of relief as my mom has had a long history of dating abusive people and we'd known this one as a comparably nice guy - not so much her type. But after a few months, he became extremely clingy, possessive and obsessive over her. We'd joke about it on the rare occasion he wasn't present, that he was like a little dog - always on her heels - and "this is the reason that we, as a family, never had a canine". He'd s
  20. I met a girl who, in her bio, has a section titled "complications" which is longer than any other section of her bio. She describes PTSD and others, among her complications. The rest of her bio is golden to me, and she's definitely my type. I'm trying to build a rapport with her. I think I can be patient and understanding, but she seems uninterested, and I'm conflicted. Do I put a little pressure on to try and see if the root of her disinterest is fear or stress? What if it is, and putting on the pressure makes her double down? What if the disinterest is real... now I'm just being rude and
  21. I was dating a girl for about 8 months, which was always afraid that she might be the "second violin" or something like that, despite the fact that I have spent nearly 70% of the entire year with her, and we discussed multiple times how well we are together. We started seeing each other less and less, and she suddenly told me that she was in a new relationship (2 weeks period). The most utterly stupid thing I have ever heard in my life. Needless to say, depression followed, anger grew strong, then it became a bit neutral. She wanted to keep contact and be friends of course, I immediately began
  22. Hi all! Want some advice on a guy please. I used to work in the same place as this guy, we did not talk much but always liked my social media photos. I always thought he was attractive but I had a boyfriend when I worked there. A few years ago we he messaged me randomly to say he had always liked me and that I was beautiful but he said he never had the guts to say anything until then. I was flattered by the response and he asked if he wanted to meet up, I declined as I wasn’t wanting to date anyone or start a relationship plus he had a 2 year old son and was getting help for alcoholism and
