From a 16 year old in the : I got sexually abused by my step father for 14 years. When I was 13, I got raped twice. Now, I constantly have these flashbacks.

Could I Have PTSD?

When I was a young child I was mocked a lot, but childhood bullying is not my main concern. When I was a Sophomore in High school, my grandmother moved in with my family and I (mom, dad, and I. I have no siblings.) When she moved in I knew her reputation of hurting the feelings of my cousins. She always leaves the boys alone, but is CRUEL to the girls. I heard stories...

Considering Leaving Bipolar Husband

My husband was diagnosed with PTSD (not military-related) and bipolar disorder approx. 5 years ago. In retrospect, many of his problems pre-date our 20-year relationship; some used to seem like quirks or immaturity, or he would find ways to justify them. These days, I barely recognize him. He only socializes with select people and keeps them meticulously separate. He spends his evenings in our basement tinkering, avoids me and becomes obsessed with “projects.” Conversations...

Delusions

I have ptsd and borderline. This winter, I had a phase of four months in which I had delusions. The delusions entailed having somebody else’s presence in my head, up to the point where this presence (while being in my head) wanted to kill me or wanted me to kill myself. People have suggested schizophrenia but I’m certain I don’t have that, because I don’t switch between personalities. I just feel like people (they’re...

Failed Recollection of Childhood Memories

Is it normal for me not to be able to remember 98% of my childhood memories? I’ve heard its common for trauma survivors but it doesn’t make any sense. Its not just childhood memories I can’t remember. I can barely remember any memories from my time at high school and I only left last May. I was wondering if this could be due to something I went through when I was 13. I came...

Depressed, Angry & Shutting People Out

In the last 2 years I’ve developed depression. Recently I’ve been having nightmares/daydreams that remind me of a past experience of abuse I witnessed and I’ll wake up crying, sweaty, and terrified. Also, lately if feels like I have a literal heart ache and I’ll always cry for no reason, I know it’s not heart problems because I’ve been to the doctor about it and my mom just thinks it’s a “phase”. I’ve also...

Emotional Shut Down

Problem with being emotional shut off. I have a problem where I’m completely shut down, I don’t have pain, anger sometimes even happiness. Once I get to a point of sadness or anger its like a switch and I don’t feel anything. I was all types of abused as a kid from being burned by cigarettes, to broken bones and put into the hospital several times. I was neglected by my mother who had...
