What is PTSD? 

PTSD may happen after a traumatic event or experience, it’s normal to feel frightened, sad, anxious, and disconnected. If, you are not able to get past the event you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD can develop following any event that makes you fear for your safety. So many people still only associate PTSD with military combat. The truth is that any traumatic event, or series of events, that leave someone overwhelmed with feelings of hopelessness and leaves them emotionally shattered, can trigger PTSD, especially if the event feels unpredictable and uncontrollable.


PTSD may affect people who personally experience the traumatic events, those who witness the event, or those who pick up the pieces afterwards, such as emergency workers and law enforcement officers. It can even occur in the friends or family members of those who went through the actual trauma. Seek help asap if you believe you are experiencing PTSD, for treatment,  support, and help to  developing coping skills, you can learn to manage your symptoms, reduce painful memories, to help move on with your life.

I am surviving with CPTSD from childhood abuse from childhood, my teens and my first marriage. So I started the page and these groups in hopes to help others.



We are all told, “live your life to the fullest well living with PTSD can make that hard to do”; I started PTSD AND SURVIVING To Survivor on Facebook June 26, 2020. My hopes the day I started was to help at least one person. So I started a Women’s, a Men’s, a Women’s and Men’s and a PTSD and Surviving page to help others with what I’ve been though and hopefully help, inspires and send good vibes and love in this crazy world. So, sit back, relax, and read on. Find us on Facebook and join us try and survive together.


This Private Group is for both Men and Women on Facebook come join us.
