awakening from PTSD
8/12/2008 6:22:30 AM
This is the first day of the rest of my life.
I've been sick. Here's what's been going on.

PTSD, OR Post traumatic stress disorder, is a mental desease that I've been suffering with for over 30 years, unknown to me until last week, when I went thru what's called "flooding". It was "triggered" by an event or words that resembled something that happened to me as a child. I am a survivor of sexual abuse and incest. I kew and ealt with the incest, but the sexual abuse was another issue, because when I flooded, I remembered so many incidences form the time i was 4 to age 18. there were mutiple perpetrators of these assaults thru those years. I hid it all and went on with my live. never dealing with upfront, never able to face the trauma i was going thru. but deep depression and mememory flooding have alerted me that I need help. And help is available out there. I feel so much better now. I miss my friends at the Den, but I was in a dark place. Now I am in the light again, so I'm back. My writing , for awhile, will be a little depressing for some, but it's my way of healing, as I relate in prose, what life has been like for me, then and now.
Thanks for listening, my friends. I love you all!

Denise Edwards, a survivor!
