Hi DingDing Crunch!
I have had both mold toxicity and CPTSD. I was deep in a mold crisis when I found the therapist who helped me identify and understand my CPTSD. It was very difficult to tease the two apart--still is. Like you, I think the mold made my CPSTD symptoms worse. I had functioned more or less well all my life (or seemingly so) until the mold; then it was a hurricane at sea for me and my family. Like LucySnow (Hi, Lucy!), I couldn't afford diagnosis or treatment of the mold illness the first time I was exposed, but I did find my amazing therapist. After my third known exposure to toxic molds, I finally got to a specialist. The treatment is working! It's a long haul, though, and not much fun detoxing because the treatment flushes those mycotoxins out of their hidey holes and back into circulation, where they trigger all the original symptoms. This has been particularly scary for me because those symptoms (anxiety, brain fog, and loss of short-term memory, for example) feel very much like having my traumas brought back to me, tangling my response to previous traumas with the toxicity of the mold. Happily, the mold detox treatment is really helping with my anxiety and giving me a sense that I really can get better. Sending courage and perseverance! You will get through this!
