Two days in and itís been great! Exhausting but great! I have great rapport with my co-workers and so the love they they showed me as I came back was both touching and uplifting.

The way their faces lit up when they saw me, the hugs from nearly everyone (thereís a story there, but another time) made me feel so loved that I can hardly express it.

That said, I experienced a difficult time sleeping last night, which is always my bellwether signal, so I have committed to taking it easy while at work for at least a little while.

Iíll write more this weekend. Iím tired now and need to go to sleep.

Good night friends

Hey all. I just recently joined and I wanted to share some of the things that I go through as I recover from a full-blown C-PTSD relapse. I was in bad shape and didnít know if I was going to make it, but the episode is over now, the healing has begun and tomorrow I head back to work for the first time in 6 weeks.

Iíll try to add to it as often as I can.

Today, I am excited to get back to work. Not anxious, but actual excitement.

My boss and my company have been incredibly supportive and I know that I am incredibly lucky to have them on my side.

The past 2 days I have had some real peace in my life. Not a bunch of stress, just relaxation and rest.

I woke to an alarm today just to see how I would react and it went perfectly. (Long story, maybe some other time, but letís say that iíve never really slept very well.)

Thatís it for today. Iíll give a first day back report tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

And this is what I need to realize inside. It seems counter-intuitive to think that the past can impact the present even if we don’t want it to.

This is my normal, and for me, I have to learn to accept that there’s nothing wrong with it.

Welcome cynditk.

I also recently joined this forum. I thought I was alone in what I was diagnosed with. This is the first place where I have felt like Iím actually pretty normal... for someone with C-PTSD

Thank you all for making me feel so welcome.

I have already started searching other threads, and I think that this site may be exactly what I am looking for.

That would be a refreshing change.

I am turning 57 this month and I recently had a severe episode. I havenít worked in 5 weeks, but am hoping to return soon.

The problem is that my family doesnít seem to understand what Iím going through and donít know what to do.

I feel very alone and I often isolate to get away from overstimulation. It baffles me that I want understanding yet I isolate, but I think that this is largely because I seek understanding and the people around me donít get it. I need support and they seem unable to give.

Hi everyone. Iím new here. My name is Mike.

I came here looking for others who are dealing with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

There is surprisingly little available online as it is such a new diagnosis. I am grasping at straws at the moment looking for others who share my pain.
