My PTSD and Me

r-aine:

I used to loathe my stretch marks. Then one day, my best friend made this lovely comparison to ocean ripples and I began to fall in love with them. They show how intertwined we are with nature. How could that be considered ugly?

Congratulations on being an utter disrespectful piece of shit! 10/10 dead soldiers who committed suicide with real PTSD salute you.

Are you fucking kidding me? You know that more than just soldiers have PTSD, right? In fact, rape victims and children in inner-city and high crime areas are more like to develop PTSD than soldiers.

But you know what? Among people who actually suffer from PTSD (which I’m assuming you don’t) solidarity is important. Because while we all have different reasons for having PTSD, we’re all going through the same thing.

But go ahead. Completely ignore the fact that being raped more than once in my life has led to me being diagnosed with an incredibly severe disorder by my doctor, psychologist, and psychiatrist. Ignore the fact that I’ve tried to kill myself. Ignore the fact that I have hallucinations and flashbacks and panic attacks every day. Ignore the fact that I suffer just like every other person with PTSD. You’re just like every other ableist piece of shit out there who has made sure that people with PTSD, INCLUDING SOLDIERS, don’t have access to the mental health resources they need.

I hope you can sleep at night, unlike those of us who suffer from PTSD.

I’d remove anonymous as an option if I were you…

That’s really sad though… It’s shocking someone who’ve read half an article about PTSD veterans assume they know more about what PTSD is than psychologists :|

As soon as I can get to a computer (or figure out how to take anon off on mobile) I’m going to turn anon off. :( It sucks that I have to, since I get a lot of people who send rants anonymously to my inbox when they just to need vent to a private place. But unfortunately people like this feel the need to ruin safe places.
I just can’t stand how people think that they know everything about PTSD when they’ve only ever read things about soldiers. A lot of soldiers have PTSD, but there are numerous other reasons why people have PTSD. Sexual assault, physical abuse, emotional abuse, vehicles accidents, job related accidents or stress, human trafficking, natural disasters, being a civilians during war or genocide, etc. I’ve talk to dozens of people with PTSD and all of their stories are unique and diverse. All ignoring that does is cause people with PTSD to suffer and be unable to get help. :( And that makes me so sad.

Heaven fucking forbid anything in my life go right.

I’m actually trying so hard to have friends. Like, I’ve been texting people back and calling people and actually going out. I’m trying so, so hard.

But this whole friendships thing just isn’t working out over.

Like, I’ve made three really good friends in the past two years.

I can’t hang out or talk to one of them anymore because her fiancé is insanely jealous of me (even though I have 0 interest in dating my friend).

The other sort of used me as a friend during a hard period and is now phasing me out of with life.

The third doesn’t like to hang out with me because I don’t drink or do drugs.

Like… Why is this so hard? Do other people have this hard of a time making friends?
