First time
« on: November 05, 2019, 08:15:01 PM »
Hi

I got diagnosed with complex ptsd last year and it was quite overwhelming. 
Due to the nature of my experience Iím estranged from my parents and a lot of my family, plus Iím recently separated from my husband.
Iím feeling very alone at the moment but find it almost impossible to let anyone in.

It would be nice to communicate with people that donít need me to teach them about cptsd but just get it.
Everything is difficult at the moment.

Sarals,
Welcome to OOTS.  :heythere: It is a help and a relief to be able to communicate with people who "get it." I have felt much less alone and have received support and encouragement from those who are a part of this group.

No wonder "everything is difficult at the moment." You are dealing with a lot.

Hi Sarals; welcome!

It does feel lonely when family/parents really aren't there for you. CPTSD has a lot to it; it can be very overwhelming. Things will get better in time though! I hope things become less difficult for you soon, sending you strength until then.

Take care! :)

Hi there Sarals, I'm new too! Excited to speak to others and learn more about how to cope.

Welcome! I was so relieved to discover here on the forum a group of people who just "get it", who had the same feelings and reactions that I did. First time in my life I felt like I fit in someplace! I hope you have the same feeling.

Welcome sarals!!!

This is a place of understanding and healing. People here actually understand what youíre going through and that fact alone can make things better.

Iím glad that you found OOTS.
