Hey all, Indy Rex here.

I just joined the site and am not really sure where to begin.

I've been struggling with PTSD for about a year now.  And honestly maybe struggling the most with accepting the fact that I am a survivor.  That it's a huge part of who I am, and has been controlling my behavior and emotions for so long. 

But I don't want it to. 

I want to be in control. 

I want to have a safe space where I can be open about what I've been through and feel accepted.  Which is what I hope to find here -- others who feel what I feel.  Others who understand me.

Hi @Indyrex welcome to After Silence! 

I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling a lot. PTSD can be very difficult to deal with. This forum has been my safe space to share, receive support and give support for many years. It's not judgmental and people here are kind and caring. It's a nice community where you don't have to constantly explain yourself. :aswelcomesu: :notalone::supportu:

Thank you all  :wub: It's kind of overwhelming (in a good way) finally finding a place where people can relate to what I'm going through.

Thank you @Capulet & @Oneinamillion

I'm starting to feel it more and more in myself, but I think other survivors are some of the strongest and powerful humans I know :)
