As I am so honest and forthright about my journey, my insight etc, sometimes people see me as a ‘professional’, or guru of PTSD and that is not something I wish to encourage.
So I do remind people of the reality of my situation and I am not a professional.
A post to my page today 🙂
I do have deep insight into trauma, abuse, PTSD & Complex PTSD and into how abusers mind’s work, due to needing to survive them.
I don’t have all the answers though, nor am I fully healed of my trauma.
I’m not a mental health professional (yet), so I remind everyone of that – and I do always advise seeking professional diagnosis and counselling.
I am in counselling and have been for 2 years and will be for some time and that’s okay, I need it.
So please don’t take everything I say here as professional advice, or to be what everyone needs.
I share my journey, thoughts, insight etc, to help people know they are not alone and to express what I think about, because it does enable others to do the same.
I do have insight, but I also have humility and wisdom to know, I do not know it all, and my advice is not professional advice.
Always real and honest ❤
