It must be very hard for those who had trauma in adulthood, and PTSD has changed life considerably, from one pre-trauma person, to a post-trauma person.
I can empathise, that must be very hard to come to terms with and the pre-trauma person, needs to be grieved.
It is also very painful, to not ever have had a ‘pre-trauma’ life.
I don’t know what it is like, to not be a trauma survivor.
I don’t know what it is like to not have PTSD and Complex PTSD.
I don’t know what it is like to not feel fear, anxiety, hypervigilance, insomnia, nightmares, fear of trust, fear of abandonment, severe depression, low self worth, self hate never far from the surface, various forms of emotional self harm etc.
It has all been in my life, every single day, from early childhood, with no break. Ever.
My entire life, has been about surviving trauma and PTSD.
If you relate to this, please know, I understand how devastating, this is to come accept and deal with.
