Add to that a useless psychiatrist who - despite his promises - neglected to refer me to the local PTSD clinic and a load of petty, childish ridiculousness from various other people in my life and I'm in a seriously frazzled state!
Fortunately, I do have some very supportive people in my life, but there's only so much they can do (especially as some of them are suffering too), and I did finally get my referral (I'm now on the waiting list, although I've no idea how long that will be!), so the future is looking a little less bleak.
However, it's the now, the present that I'm having difficulties dealing with. How do you cope on a day to day basis? It's that I'm not finding easy. Any advice/suggestions gladly received...
I'm going to try to blog a bit more regularly here, but I may disappear for a while sometimes (I tend to hide when I'm ill and can't cope). I will be back though!

About my blog
Please note that some of the content here may be triggering.
What I write here is just me being honest with myself. Mostly just venting about things, realisations, and my path through healing.
There will be talk of CSA, SA, R, SI and ED here.
