I hate the person I've become

I was sexually assaulted about six years ago, and it took me a few years to admit what happened to me. I was diagnosed with PTSD last year.
Now, I already had depression and anxiety, so I was emotionally unstable to begin with.
I've become incredibly irritable and angry, even over minor things. I'm hyperalert and jumpy, too, to the point where my reactions are way out of proportion.
I feel contaminated, like I wasn't ...

Is it me or what is happening

Hello there

I have suffered abuse at intervals throughout my life and have bouts of depression, sometimes very deep.
The few years of my life have been devoted to healing from trauma and addiction.
My life has yet to fully get started and Im struggling to find my way, causing intense worry and sadness.

It doesn't suit me but ...

Is this a flashback or just anxiety?

So I have these thoughts about things that have happened in my past that play out like a nightmare in my head but I can’t wake up because I’m already awake. Most of the time when I have these thoughts they will make me panic instantly. They are based on what happened, but they’re more exaggerated. So for example when I was younger I would get in the car with a girl who had been ...

Will it ever go away?

My trauma (life threatening, real) happened when I was 14. Repressed it. Knew something was there but couldn’t quite place a finger on it. When I was 36 it came back to me in bits and pieces. Very confusing but managed to understand it more and more. I am now 58 and still suffer from night terrors and flashbacks. The flashbacks can be difficult because it’s like one ear and one eye are in one ...

It May Seem Impossible

Today has been the breakthrough I've been hoping for. So many questions-so few answers was my life. Today light has shown on what was hidden under many layers of humanitity at its truest state. Some layers natural, some self constructed, while others programmed to destroy. I am posting to say I am thankful for forgiveness and for Hope. I know it may seem impossible but love will find the way if you never give up. ...

Remembering Two Outcomes of a Single Event?

Hello all, adult child abuse survivor here. One of the most frustrating things I think about my trauma is that it's sometimes hard to remember it, or to remember exactly what happened, and I'm never sure if my memories are real or not. Like, what if I'm just making them up? Or what if I'm over-exaggerating them and thus giving myself PTSD based on false/amplified memories? But that's besides the point. My main concern right ...
