I have PTSD i suffer badly with this,i was abused as a child, rapes as a teenager and was in a violent marriage for 6 yrs were i was raped and beaten daily.


I have since re-married but not for the right reasons its more for having help than anything there is no physical relationship.


I get help from Avon House ( Community Mental Health Centre in Plymouth) but alot of the time i tell them im better than i really am as i dont want my family involved in it all.


Will it ever end will things ever go away cause they are always pictured in my mind daily thats all i want is the mental pictures to leave me.


I feel so tired and blame myself all the time and then i find myself getting into arguments over the daftest things.


At other times i seem to be helping others as i've been through a traumatic past but were does it stop?  why must my head rule my life in so many different ways?  It dosn't seem fair i would love the day i wake up and havent dreamt or thought of what has happened to me. Many thanks for your time. Good luck x

I will leave it up to you, should you wish to make up a name as an identity. Also if you want to join the site. i wish people would sign up, so I have some idea of how much help this site is.


I am myself a service-user on and off since I was 18 years old. That was a long time ago and there isn't a lot of things, that I haven't heard or seen.


I have heard so many horrific stories, but this has helped me to be empathetic. I cannot give professtional help, but I maybe able to point you in the right direction, for the right support.
