Hello, I’m new here, decided a really needed to find support.
One of the hardest things about PTSD is, going through this makes us need the support of others more than ever, yet the disease itself causes further isolation. It sets us apart from the average person. Not only can we not entrust just anyone with what’s happened to us, but if we do they cannot understand what it’s like, so it makes us feel different from everyone else and misunderstood. Especially for people who don’t seem to think it’s as bad as we say it is.
I find it hard to relate and connect to anyone knowing they’ll never understand why I go through what I go through every single day, so I can be surrounded by people but still feel disconnected.
I really needed to vent because I truly need to connect to people who know what this is like
