Hi everyone my name is David and I live with complex-P.T.S.D and as well Hep C and Hemochromatosis. I live in British Columbia Canada. I'm new to this site and am just looking to connect with individuals who, might be experiencing the isolation and loneliness of living with P.T.S.D. If you'd like to connect, I'd so welcome that. I experienced early childhood trauma and was held hostage in a school at gun point, when I was ten years old. I won't go into the details, yet it was horrifying. I escaped my family home which was highly abusive and ran to the streets of Toronto Canada, where I spent almost ten years living on the streets. I survived, yet am left with the invisible wounds and scars of so much abuse. Today I am 53, I hope that what I've shared is appropriate for this forum, it is not my intent to trigger anyone. These days I seem to have inadvertently pushed people and support out of my life. Thus, I'm very isolated and lonely. I need to connect with people who live with this disorder as there is very little supportive services where I live. However, through filing a "claim" for criminal injuries here in British Columbia Canada, I have been awarded some councelling and will be starting soon. I'm so grateful this site is here. Best wishes to everyone. David.
