New here in need of support . Struggle with trauma related mental health issues and having a extremely difficult and painful time at the moment. I am 33 and am currently feeling very isolated, finding everything pretty difficult. Have struggled with mental health issues for a very long time due to chronic trauma.

I like to think I am a kind individual who just wishes life was a little kinder to me as it feels very harsh right now

Goodmorning violetsky1. What a beautiful name. I also suffered trauma and had PTSD. I had stopped talking, could not remember anything and was pretty messed up. But, I found a wonderful counselor who guided me back to "normalcy". I also saw a psychiatrist who prescribed some meds. I think the key issue is to find a excellent counselor you can trust. They will walk you through this. Good luck !

Hello. thankyou very much. yes I like the colour violet it is a lovely colour.

Yes I am currently having trauma therapy but sometimes I still find things extremely difficult I have possible dissociative disorder and sometimes I can just feel extremely overwhelmed and find it very difficult to fight all these feelings emotions every day.

She is a very good therapist and very experienced but sometimes I still get extremely sad and down and feel sometimes like I am not coping at all sometimes.

I dont have any friends to see and I struggle still to go out the house.

I am currently having therapy but that and my sister are kind of the only support I feel I have and sometimes things still can get too much for me with the nature of my mental illness and the things I have been through and am working through in trauma therapy
