Complex PTSD or C-PTSD


Image by via Flickr

For me, the result of long term physical and psychological abuse is that I have C-PTSD. This is a relatively new area of psychology, and differs in many ways from PTSD. The main difference it loss of self. I have posted a website that contains a description of C-PTSD. Over the next month, I am going to write about living with C-PTSD.


About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.
