Information about CPTSD and Interpersonal Relationships

C-PTSD and Interpersonal Relationships, Fabiana Franco, Oct 2018

What Appears to Be Mental Health Stigma Might Be Self-Care - Good article about why others may pull back/away from us (i.e., practicing self-care versus reacting to the stigma of mental health issues).

Careful Conflict, Sonia Connolly, added June 2019

Taking the War Out of Our Words, Sharon Ellison, 2009

I was going to post an item along the lines of 'Does anyone else have difficulty with....'

Then I read the link to the article on interpersonal relationships.

Thanks Kizzie, the article confirms the odd way I feel and behave toward others is down to trauma.

Made me smile to find the answer before posing the question.

Tks for pinging these articles Rainagain, I hadn't read them in a long time and they are a reminder that our interpersonal relationships need to be trauma-informed. It's not just us dealing with our CPTSD in isolation, if impacts those around us,  our partners, friends, children .... :yes:
 
Those in a relationship with a C-PTSD sufferer need to understand that they cannot always help behaving the way they do, and need love and support as they learn to control their behavior. The [person] with C-PTSD needs to appreciate that he or she is not always easy to be around and be open about their struggles.
