New guy on the block
« on: June 28, 2014, 08:08:22 PM »
Hello everyone!

I joined this forum in order to discuss my PTSD/Social Anxiety with like minded individuals.

I was diagnosed two years ago at the age of 22.  I guess the signs were there but I never sought help for any symptoms.  I was always led to believe that emotions or seeking help was a sign of weakness from a very young age.  My onset of PTSD is a result of an abusive upbringing from my former stepfather.   It was 14 years that started the nightmares, the flashbacks, the impending fear of people, and the loss of the ability to sleep.

People tend to say they understand but unless they experience some of these feelings for themselves, I just think they can truly comprehend them.

It would be awesome to share my experiences with others and know that I am not the only person that experiences these things.

I also have had PTSD from childhood abuse... I wasn't diagnosed till I was 25 yrs old.  I had 2 years of counselling...  But I too thought I was too sensitive or something... It does get better.  Hang in there and realize that angry people are not gods to be feared. :)
