    Hi everyone !! I haven’t been posting the last few months as I’ve been really busy, however, everything isn’t perfect but I started back at therapy! For the first time I have opened up to a professional about how my ex-boyfriend made me feel and the impact it has had on me, I also got a PTSD diagnosis. I know this doesn’t sound like a good thing but knowing I have a diagnosis and my reaction to the trauma is normal and there are others out there like me makes me feel so much better. And my parents who were always my rock when it came to my emotions, finally now understand why I am so emotional over what happened, they understand it more. Overall, I still struggle with nightmares and anxiety, but I am getting better, I’m learning to feel again! Hopefully, soon I will be ready to try dating again without freaking out. Maybe ??? Anyway, thank you to everyone who ever supported me <3

    That is awesome. I am so happy for you. Its hard to know there is a issue and not have a diagnosis, so you get no understanding or help. I hope that going forwards, you get the help and support and even understanding you need
