I Have Ptsd.
I was sexually abused over a period of 10 years and was diagnosed with PTSD in December 2010. I'm not on any medication but am in high intensity CB/IE therapy for the time being. Therapy is a tough journey but i'm told it's worth it in the end. I experience flashbacks at least one every day and quite often dissociate to deal with anything and everything. It's like my mind is hardly ever in the present, it's always stuck in the past or racing to the future. My family and friends don't know much about ptsd so I fight this battle on my own, that's probably the hardest part for me, having nobody to ride out the horrible memories or to help me ground myself and bring me back to the present.
