Hi,

I'm new here and I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm LanaBanana, I'm 21 years old and I am pretty sure I have C-PTSD from years of abuse. I am currently in therapy and healing. Reading through some of the posts on this forum has been really eye-opening for me and I'm glad I found this website.
Thank you so much for this!  :disappear:

Hi and a warm welcome LanaBanana  :heythere:

I think the best advice you'll read about here is to take things slowly and in baby steps.  It took time for the trauma to layer on, and it takes time to peel them away.  :yes:

The other would be to engage a T who is trained and experienced in dealing with CPTSD.

Keep posting  ;D

It's called complex PTSD for a reason. :(

What's the tough part at the moment?

Hi Lana, I'm new here, too. I'm sorry for everything that's happened to you. Moving forward has been the hardest part for me, too. I don't know how to do it, besides together with someone you trust.
