I am an Adult Survivor of Childhood Trauma and PTSD
My name is Jessica. Hello. I hate these about things, I never know what to write and I wanted to get this bloody blog up and running so I thought I would give you a quick insight to who I am and a basic outline of my story. I will update this when I have more time to sit and think about how to do a better job. Basically, this blog is a pet project of mine combined with my facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/traumasurvivors. I created it with several goals.
To share my story, to find a way to tell my story.
To share what I learn on my journey to healing and recovery from PTSD.
To share my journey as an adult survivor of childhood abuse and trauma.
To connect with others who are also survivors and who struggle to find healing and peace.
To provide a support systems for not only people like myself, but to those who care about people like us, survivors of trauma and sufferers of PTSD.
To stand up for those with mental illness and who struggle with PTSD and to take away the stigma that is associated with both.
To provide accurate information about PTSD and quelsh the ignorant and incorrect assumptions and information floating around regarding PTSD and Trauma Survivors.
And finally, to provide a sanctuary, a place for information and peace and a safe place to connect and share your story with others.
Most importantly, my goal is to let you know that you are not alone. Help is out there and so is a community of people who suffer, have suffered and are working on healing. You. Are. Not. Alone.
My story will come out as I write more and develope this blog. I will also update this page when I have more time to focus on it.
The picture above is of me and my mother, the woman who adopted me when I was a teenager and who provided me with safety, security, unconditional love and acceptance. She is an amazing woman and I will talk more about our journey as time goes on.
For now, thank you for visiting my site, for taking the time to read and I hope you will feel comfortable here, joining the community and learning more about PTSD and Adult Survivors of Childhood Trauma.
This is a FB video. I talk about stuff.
