Hello, my name is Alexandria. I joined this group in hopes of finding friends who can identify with my PTSD symptoms. I am 20 years old and currently working on my bachelors in Psychology. I hope to become a psychiatric nurse some time down the line. I have 3 cats which are basically my children, and an undying love for Star Trek (If anyone is interested in Trekking out, I would love that!). I'm super excited to be able to be a part of this online community and can't wait to read everyone's posts!

Hi Alexandria,


Welcome to AS :-)

I'm Leah, I'm 30 and I have just finished a B.psych (hons)... I graduate in April!! I loved my degree, it was amazing, absolutely my passion.

I have struggled with PTSD symptoms in the past, but do so much less now.

Anyway just thought I'd say hi
