Greetings from London
« on: August 27, 2020, 07:45:31 PM »
Hello everyone,  :wave:

I have just joined up to the forum and wanted to introduce myself briefly. I'm in my early 30's and living in London, UK - I am currently in treatment for CPTSD alongside a few other MH issues and have been looking for a friendly, welcoming community like this one to share thoughts and ideas with as I go through this journey of self discovery.

I was only formally diagnosed about 1 year ago and have found it refreshing to know that I'm not the only one struggling with the kinds of issues we find ourselves having to cope with, especially after feeling so alone and misunderstood for so long.

My problems stem from childhood & later teen sexual and emotional abuse.

I really relish the chance to get to know everyone on here - please do drop me a line if you want to chat :)

 :wave: Hi, CherryTree,

Cptsd can indeed be a very lonely trek. It's especially hard to locate others who've wandered the territory, so congrats to your finding OOTS, an oasis of folks sharing as best they can with peers who are understanding and supportive.
