I'm new to the forum. As I've read in the description, I don't want to trigger anyone or give too much of my story -- but I have recently been diagnosed with social anxiety and PTSD due to my experience. Without anyone in my life who has been through something similar I thought it might be good to meet some friends & maybe find someone to talk to who might understand.
I hope you're all well.

Hi Molly.

I'm quite new here myself, but have already found it a very reassuring place.  I've also been struggling with PTSD symptoms and have recently started seeing a therapist and dealing with those issues.  Send me a message if you'd like to talk sometime.

Take care of yourself,

Bekey

Yes, Reglois, it's definitely sad to see so many members. But it's nice to not feel so alone and be somewhere that I can talk about what happened. A curse and a blessing, I guess.
