I'm feeling a little nervous and apprehensive about this post as I have never reached out or done anything like this before, so I am unsure about what exactly to say. I am a child abuse survivor and was abused for over 8 years and as a result of this I have severe anxiety and complex PTSD. I have only ever told one (very special) person about the things that have happened to me in my life but have remained unable to come to terms with what happened to me. I'm nearly 22 now and it is effecting my life more than ever, it has ruined my 2 year long relationship (as he is unable to cope with my outburst, jealousy and episodes any longer), I've become distant from friends, behind in my university work and just generally in a really low place. I have decided to post in the forum as I have never been able to connect with people similar to me, I've started to feel really alone recently.
Anyway, thank you for reading (if you made it this far)
