PTSD Flare Up Due to Online Bullying
Without going into specific details, I’ve been bullied online over something totally ridiculous - next Friday I’m having surgery to fix some damage that happened during the procedure I had last month.
I am 33 years old, I have two bachelor’s degrees, I have two jobs, a ridiculously amazing husband.
Yet right now I’m having flashbacks to things I haven’t thought in years. One particular teacher was always very helpful and on guard to help me, I was lucky to have her in my corner. But school in general wasn’t great for me because I’m different and never looked like a typical kid/teen. I tried, but some things just can’t be hidden.
I was always told “it would get better.” And it did! Until I got targeted my some random person and now I’m a woman who is now in the trap of a bully. Now I feel like I’m in back in high school and of sucks. I know I’ll overcome it soon, because I have amazingly supportive friends who have taken up my cause.
I have a damn good life and I’m beyond happy. But I also complex PTSD, that just means I have two or more types of it. It’s been triggered and it sucks.
