In 2008, at age 50, my life was turned upside down and inside out with diagnosis of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of childhood trauma endured as a result of events/experiences with my Mother who was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia when I was age 2.  I am past the stage of shock and denial although at times I am still mystified because on a conscious level I still believe and feel that I am at peace with my childhood and my Mother who died in 2004 from suicide.  However, with my body in a constant state of hyper vigilance and a minimum anxiety level of 4, along with loss of job, loss of friends, and very limited to what I can and cannot do I can no longer deny that I do indeed suffer  from C-PTSD.  I believe in the power of support and hope to connect with others to share experiences, ideas for recovery, etc. as we make this journey.

  1. Hello! Thank you for following my blog on Word Press. I’m now following yours. My Google blog “Healing Abuse-Caused Complex PTSD” is more up-to-date, so you might want to follow it. I gave up on WP. You are right in saying we need to support one another! I will be reading your blog on a regular basis. Thank you for all you are doing on behalf of those of us with C-PTSD. If you want to write to me directly, my address is jeanfairgrieve15@gmail.com. Cheers! Jean
