What makes me angry is that Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka Complex PTSD or C-PTSD, and it’s PREVENTION is not being talked about or acted upon. Understandably, it was only recognized as a disorder separate and distinct from PTSD in 2018 by the World Health Organization but it was supposed to have been included in the USA’s DSM at the time of the last update, many years ago and so it has not been taught about or researched about as soon as it could have been. Even still, many medical professionals, general practitioners and psychologist/psychiatrists alike, know little to nothing about it leaving many too many undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and therapy sorely lacking. Yes, Complex PTSD is PREVENTABLE and awareness and action toward its prevention would considerably address the prevalent homelessness, addiction problems and the sadly unnecessary suicide rates worldwide. C-PTSD is PREVENTABLE! Become aware and insist upon change by sharing these links far and wide!

What brings me joy is knowing people jump on the bandwagon to create awareness of Complex PTSD and demand changes to our currently archaic misogynistic patriarchal system.

Fighting through #PTSD

I've been going through a hard time lately. I've been dealing with a lot of #PTSD stuff. It's made my Crohn's flare up, I fell back onto old behaviours for a while, I was kicked out of a treatment program after refusing to go back to residential. I'm doing okay. I'm getting better. I know it will get better. I am, however, tired of feeling like I have to wear long sleeves because I am really ashamed of this. I am ashamed of the scars. I feel guilty. Simultaneously I feel like screaming that “it’s not fair”, that “it’s not my fault”, that “I did not choose this.” This past week has been hard. I'm in the midst of a bad #CrohnsDisease flare up, and hearing #drchristineblaseyford give her testimony set off some triggers. It far from easy, unlike the tears that came with it. This week I saw my dad break down in tears; I heard him talk about how he wishes he could take back the trip he and my mom took when I was eight; where I stayed behind and was brought into a sexual trafficking situation. #WhyIDidntReport is because I was terrified that they would come back and make good on their promise to take me away forever, and decapitate my parents in front of me. I was eight, and I was being threatened with a gun, before I even really knew what a gun was. There are things I remeber, and things I don't. What I do know is that #ibelievesurvivors #iamasurvivor #MeToo #wearenotalone #istandwithsurvivors #nomore #TimesUp #timeisnow #iamafighter #timesupnow
