Hi everyone, just thought I would do an introduction. So I developed Cptsd after suffering through a narcissistic upbringing and then having 2 abusive relationships and 4 major traumatic experiences and lots of smaller ones as an adult. I have been pursuing therapy since I was 16 and for 17 years have been on and off with every different type of therapy and had many different labels for my mental health issues. this year a psychologist final put everything together and came to the conclusion that I was suffering  Cptsd.
Iím not really sure how far into my journey I am but hopefully I will be able to gain and give advice and help on this lovely site.
  Thanks
