Our Real Life Experience With CPTSD & PTSD


  1. how can you get over CPTSD when you must still live with the stressor day to day. I suffer pain all the time and It is all I can do to work by the time I come home I am in so much pain I cant even take care of myself and my daughter. The pain is worse every day and I am just hopping to get my daughter through the year to graduate High School and I am working at a temp agency making only $15 and hour as an apartment leasing agent. I do not get sick days or even have days off together. When my hip dislocated due to my medical condition I was lucky I had 2 days off before work. I took it easy for 2 days and went back to work. I was lucky that the fallowing week I was working at an apartment community that had no vacancy and I was the only one in the office. I had to use a walker. I could not even go to a doctor because I could not get time off and could not afford the $45 copays for the doctor visit, the x-ray, the medication. If I ask for a day off then the company shorts my schedule for a few weeks and I cant pay my bills. My student loans are in default I don’t have internet at home and have to go to the library, but I cant get through to any one to help me on line and they wont answer the phone some times for over an hour trying to reach someone. I cant keep working much longer, but I cant get disability because I am able to work. If I keep working until I cant work any longer it will be too late and the doctors will not be able to do any thing to help me. If I stop working than I cant get help because I quite working on my own. I keep waiting to get my daughter out of school and finding myself resenting her for have learning difficulties and taking so long. I am just tired. I cant sleep because of the pain and when I do I have night mares so bad I cant even think of going back to sleep.

    Thanks for letting me vent, I does help.
