PTSD and me

In retrospect I now know I have had PTSD for a long time. I was diagnosed officially about three years ago after years of abuse. 

I have since had Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for trauma and it helped so much. So much so that I felt the urge to pay it foward. Watch this page of my blog in may for my "effort" and some party pictures!

This section of my blog will be dedicated to PTSD education. Myth busting. And some random interesting stuff. Watch out for guest posts!

PTSD video

So..as you can see I have made a video with solent NHS trust and Southampton University about...PTSD! I will be posting a link to the short documentary after its offcial first screening.

I hope it helps some of my readers, hi guys! There are about to be more of you because Solent NHS is linking to my blog via the docu-video. 

This category will be dedicated to a bit more of my recovery story. Plus in the furture..some more videos! They are about to start popping up all over my blog!! 

This blog itself is part of my recovery, I came by PTSD via abuse and telling my story, taking the narrative and control back, is also testament to how far I have come. 

This is all for you guys and I hope it assists some of you, because talking about this stuff isn't easy for me, but part of recovery is finding meaning and purpose and for me turning my traumatizing experinces into something good and useful for others is part of that, as is the other advocacy I am getting involved with.
