Is this the best forum/subforum to discuss cPTSD?

Sorry if this is a silly question. Is this the best forum/subforum to discuss cPTSD? Especially in the context of complex trauma rather than PTSD itself. If this is not, which one is?

to put the question in the bigger perspective, i just discovered that all my mental difficulties that are very difficult to classify (ADHD, BP, BPD, atypical depression, dysthymia, adjustment disorder, PTSD, anger management, anxiety, social phobia, emotional overeating, addictive personality, ASD, etc) ...

I do not know where this new feeling of snobbiness came fro?

I was happy and confident for a while before I started grad school. I also lead a life alone without a social life because I just never made any friends in high school and in college I got busy. I am that quiet person. Also suffered PSTD from high school so now I have avoidant personality disorder. When I went to grad school, I had the idea that I would be able to start over ...

I have never felt before that I was an angry person. I’ve felt angry. I have experienced anger. But I never felt like I had BECOME an angry person.

This year I feel like that has changed. I had a rough day today. And it’s been a rough year. Not the word I’ve ever had, but relentlessly stressful. Today I feel like anger has eaten me all up and I e become a part of ...

ERP Experiences?

I've been told by my first T that I have all the symptoms of PTSD but "not the criterion A" (because I didn't tell all of my trauma, probably shouldn't have hidden it), and my new T said I do have it. I feel like I have to give a disclaimer, sorry, my OCD makes me unsure of whether or not I have an official diagnosis.

Anyway, my new T said ERP could help with ...

C-PTSD misdiagnosed as BPD? Trigger warning. (Trauma.)

(Sorry that this is long.) About 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with BPD right after some serious trauma where I thought I was going to be killed by my ex and there was rape and what was almost kidnapping/holding me hostage. I had to go along with whatever he wanted because I was scared.

When I was diagnosed, I didn't understand yet I had been through trauma, but I was later diagnosed with PTSD ...

Permission to remember...

As you may or may not be aware I'm seeking help at the moment for childhood trauma.

I've only been having the anxiety about this trauma for the past couple of years and it's been almost debilitating and caused me many problems in my personal life.

Anyway the therapy is still in the early stages but I've already started have memories of things that I really couldn't remember before. In fact it's been interrupting my ...

Dissociation Caused by Triggers?

So a while back, someone here said EMDR can sometimes be contraindicated in people with cPTSD because they experience a lot of dissociation.

I've been asking around, and now I have some extra questions.

I was told elsewhere the reason why it increases dissociation is because people with severe trauma already have a very narrow therapeutic window (between hyperawarenes and hypoawareness/dissociative states) - and the EMDR process would have to be very closely monitored or ...

Auditory hallucinations

Does anyone else hear voices from their PTSD? If so, what is it like for you?

I hear dissociated voices sometimes and my therapist told me that can happen with PTSD.

Weird Symptom

Not sure if this is a symptom of ptsd or not but here goes.

Right so first of all comes the panic attack and all the confusion and paranoia and everything like that.

Then it's as though I forget it completely and the panic goes away and then all of a sudden it all starts again and I'm in that situation again. It's like I'm stuck and I can't do anything to make it stop ...
