You should spend a day with therapists. As a therapist intern, I'd love to see what are common questions that people would ask therapists, and the different perspectives they can bring.

"You're not broken enough", that hit home. I've never had a therapist say this, but UK doctors have. Was turned away from A&E and GP for "not being bad enough for help", and I'm sure many others have too. It's a sad world.

THIS. I was confirmed to have depression, anxiety and PTSD while being told I "wasn't severe" enough, and now here I am several years later having survived a pandemic, with my mental state actively collapsing to the point that a nurse from the damn government sent a letter to my GP.

That's exactly how it is for me as well. I can handle things because *I* didn't go through such awful times, I think about it as myself, who has existed since I was 14, and a childhood to pre-teen self that went through some hard stuff. With that mindset, I'm in more control of the narrative.

I relate to this a lot especially since now I cannot express myself properly in my native language, I associate it with my younger self. I feel more comfortable communicating in English, it's like my native language speaking person is a different person than my English speaking one

I use a different language to my native one to disassociate with my younger self. In my head I've managed to go through what has happened to me thinking about it in English as if I was explaining it to someone else. I've tried with the classic diary first but I couldn't bare to leave a record of it so this is what I came up with. So many sleepless nights...but at least I've learn a second language

I have diagnosed PTSD from mental abuse I went through as a kid. I was emotionally abused by my father for over 8 years and still am whenever I get to see him. For a very very long time I thought that my pain didn't matter because he never touched me. He never layed a finger on me. If anyone is reading this with at least a drop of similarity I want you to know that emotional abuse is abuse. It's traumatic. Your pain and emotions are valid. You deserve to be heard and loved. Take care.

I get this 100%. My father was a very different man when I was growing up. He never hit me, but he threw things at me and shoved fists in my face to threaten me. It was the threats that were the worst. I’m going into social work, and knowing what PTSD looks like, I think I might’ve had it. I’ve done a lot of work on my mental health and I believe I’ve worked passed it for the most part. But I still freeze when I hear a door slam, or footsteps stomping down the hall. I have my triggers still, but I know how to handle them now. And I just wanted to add, my father is a very different man now. He is completely laid back, and fun to be around. Sometimes people change, and that comes with it’s own set of challenges. But it’s in the right direction.

“That happened so long ago, get over it” I was told by my sexual assault therapist that when someone wants you to “get over it” they’re really asking you to “be quiet and be silent” what does getting over it look like to that person? For you to be silent?

FOR PEOPLE SAYING MOST PEOPLE SAYING SAME ARE FAKING IT I do understand what you are saying but I just want you guys to know this stuff is more common then you think through sharing my story I have discovered that, No exaggeration 10 people including my step sis have had stuff happen to them. The thing is irl you have no way to bring it up because I mean what are you supposed to do? Just casually start talking about it so there might be people like me who use the internet to share there feelings without feeling weird embarrassed ext. I wish everyone the best and I want to thank everyone without ptsd who watched this for taking the time to educate yourself on this. It means a lot to me and I know it does to others as well.

Oh my god, yes. Thank you for saying this. It really hit hard, due to me being in a environment like you explained. My mother was nice, for the most part, But sometimes she'd just get set off and take her anger out on me, like a stress toy. I ended up calling the police after I turned twelve. Emotional abuse is a valid form of abuse, and I dont understand why people don't get that. It's like being confined to chains because THEY don't understand you. Even though i'm older, I still think about it alot. Being in a confined environment like that is not fun. And I really do hope it's taken to notice. Thank you for this.

From the perspective of a male survivor with CPTSD, I cannot stress enough how important it is to de-stigmatize trauma and sexual abuse. Over 70% of child survivours take thier abuse to thier grave and do not talk to anyone.

Part of it is because they don’t even realise they were abused. It happened to me. I blocked some of it out and some of it I was never told was abuse. I didn’t get ptsd until I realised what happened or maybe I had it and that’s when it got worse. Parents need to tell children what’s ok, what’s normal, what’s safe and that if something happens to go to them for help.

I have PTSD from a car accident when I was 12 and I watched the grill of the car come right at me. I was always afraid to call it PTSD because I felt my response wasn't valid because no one died, we weren't trapped for hours, etc. but that doesn't change the fact that I'm now 23, still petrified of even the idea of driving and regularly have full blown panic attacks when in the car. It was my husband that made me feel valid in calling it PTSD. I hope to one day overcome my trauma.

I still have ptsd from it and its been years. Im terrified of intersections where big accidents can occur. The driver wasnt high or drunk, just a jackass. Thats when i realized you cant trust anybody.

"Oh you're not broken enough, I don't need to see you" actually happened to me. I wish it wouldn't happen to anyone but sometimes therapists are just horrific. I don't have PTSD, but she made me see a PTSD specialist. That's okay, that was good to know i don't have PTSD. But she told me things like "you're useless to your boyfriend" or "you're never gonna get out of this if you're not making any effort" (it took all my energy to see her lmao). "I can't help you, you don't have anything!" Like b*tch don't say things like that to someone you don't know, and don't do this if you suspect PTSD like wth what's the logic. She made me fear psychiatrists. So yes, it happens, sadly. But if it ever happens to you, know that it's not your fault, you're not useless, you're seeking help, and it's a huge step towards healing. Don't let anybody treat you like that to the point you believe it ; especially somebody who's supposed to help you.

You are not alone, my SA made me hypersexual, and people pleasing to the point i only saw my value in a relationship through pleasuring my partner. And yes. I remember more easily watching erotic movies on the TV when i was 7 than watching disney movies. Only figured that out at 25, why i always cried when my partner didnt want to have sex on the last day we were together, because part of me i was not being good enough. I hope you heal from it and that you are doing good

i was diagnosed with CPTSD at 14 years old (around 4 years ago), and im glad CPTSD (reoccurring traumatic event(s) was mentioned and not just PTSD. and also talking about other things, not just sexual assault/abuse which seems to be a common thought that comes up when most people think about PTSD. trauma is trauma. there is no such thing as “small trauma”; minimizing and invalidating trauma because it seems “less than” is not okay. but thank you so so much for this, anthony, autumn, shaylena and kenneth. genuinely. 💕

My friend has PTSD and once seeked help through our school. She was doubting herself and said ‘I know I sound crazy don’t I’ and our head of year replied ‘yeah you do sound crazy’. She has had panic attacks, has sat crying for hours just to be called crazy by someone who doesn’t understand her or PTSD. People really don’t understand mental health.

I've had to see over 4 therapists because of their personal views of me. The first one told me to go to a more serious case therapist that cares for urgent patients. then they basically told me "You're not depressed enough for this kind of therapy" between this switch from urgent to a children's care (I'm not a kid) a family member passed and it all just went downhill. Now I'm talking to a toxic family care (kind of) with contacts to CPS and a young adult's therapist. It took me 2 years to get to this point and my treatment hasn't even started. That's the Swedish mental health care system :D awesome /j

I'm actually really relieved, to hear someone saying out loud that they're been abused by a family member, and breaking the stigma around it. I was sexually abused by my mother for around 10 years, and I still feel so much shame, and I'm absolutely terrified that others are gonna judge me (or just brush it off in general, which already hapened each time). I also don't know how to feel concerning about her, since I kinda dissociated her as "someone who would scare me" (even if I didn't quite understand why when I was younger), mixed with the image of a caring mom, and I'm absolutely terrified that I won't be believed again if I say what happened, mixed with the fact that.. While I'm literally seeing a therapist, I absolutely can't talk about what hapened because I'm somehow terrified my mom would get arrested or something, despite what happened (I'm 16, and waiting to be 18 yo since at that moment, then the law won't really considere me as "someone in danger") and the fact that no matter what, I just can't seem to forget it (I absolutely can't let anyone touch me (and in general, I either don't really trust others, or become really distant thinking absolutely everyone know, and that everyone hates me no matter the reason (like, someone being kind to me ? Nah, can't be real), my ocd (I've been diagnosed) with hands washing got worse etc., and I constantly feel like I'm back there). That's really ambivalent, which quite adds to the shame. Anyway, I'm sorry I got carried away, but.. I'm really really glad I saw people actually talking about it, it helps a bit hahah

@junohypot dude they were just honest and direct just because someone regrets something it can't be a excuse for their action.I think that winter beast should talk this out with their cousin AND ask for the cousins forgiveness and apologize but not to basically trauma dump on someone who's coming out about being a victim to sexual violence that's done by their goddamn mother. And instead of telling US how they're feeling awful and regretful of it ,they should be telling that the actual victim and it's up to the victim if they're going to forgive them or not.The fact that they would rather tell strangers on the internet about how much they regret doing this without even properly apologizing to the victim is awful to me,I mean.. think about how the victim is feeling about the action that was done to them without consent and probably the trauma they're left with.And this is about the person who started this comment not about winter beast.

@Andy Nonymous i feel the same way, i was SA since i was maybe 4 to 10 by a neighboor kid, my age, but i can't really remember the most traumatic one, just crying and getting into a bed, and i feel so guilty that i don't remember. And for the longest time (18 years) i thought "if i can't remember, it wasn't that much of a deal, and you put yourself there, so it wasnt SA, just child curiosity". But what makes me even more sad is not remembering the good things. My whole childhood is a blur, i remember some things, but i dont remember watching cartoons, i don't remember vacations, i don't remember childhood perks, only the bad ones. I always get sad when my friends talk about such normal things and i can't remember. Like "have you not seen *enter disney movie*?" And i have to remind them that i just don't remember. And finally coming to terms with this at 25 broke me, but made me heal so much.

@Karen Amyx hey dude/girl/person don’t feel guilty, if you can push past your trauma and cope fine than that’s great on you and you shouldn’t feel guilty for that but you could also, and this isn’t me trying to say what you are or aren’t, could be maybe suppressing or pushing the feelings or trauma down in order for your body or mind to not stress on it, which isn’t a bad thing but it could be something that is happening but I’m unsure, but if you genuinely just feel happy than that’s good on you and I’m sorry bad things happened in your childhood, wish you the best in your future mate! Safe days ^^

I'm the opposite, I've been through a ton of terrible things. Mostly in childhood.. but I feel fine. It doesn't bother me. And I dont even think about it much, except like when someone asks me about it (like when I was getting to know my partner). In a way, this makes me feel kinda guilty. Why should I get to cope just fine when others struggle so hard with it?

phant0m0th_94 Yıl önce
@Andy Nonymous it sucks that it felt like he invalidated you or you felt that it was annoying for him to bring up his issues. That’s a very valid emotion to have when sharing deep rooted trauma. However, the reality of it is a lot of people have unresolved trauma and the mental health/health care systems prevent people from seeking help. As well as societal standards believing that seeking it out is a form of weakness or something you don’t need. With that being said, I don’t think people do it in a purposeful way to make you feel less than. Or unheard. But more in a way to try to understand what you’re going thru without directly saying it or to make you feel like maybe you’re not the only one. Maybe they don’t have the necessary communication tools to help you thru and sharing their experiences in a way to help you get closer. Something about attachment styles and whatnot. The other thing we have to keep in mind is not everyone is going to have the right thing to say. If we want people to just listen and not give input, say that beforehand. We should always be asking for consent to share these stories unless it was casually brought up in conversation

I love this episode. I was professionally diagnosed with ptsd earlier this year and ppl tend to assume ive been SA'd or abused physically but instead i was just raised by an emotionally manipulative mother and bullied severally growing up. A lot of ppl dont believe when i say i have ptsd bc i look fine but rlly ive been forced to mask my feelings at a young age, things are different behind closed doors and when im alone. Trauma can come from anything, not everyone sees the same thing as traumatic.

Thank you Mr. Rogers for being such an inspiring coach & for showing me and my partner that we don't have to be limited by the traumas we experienced in our childhood. I never got the chance to let you know how much you changed my life. I'm not very good at being open with people on that level. Thank you for everything you did for our team and for me as a person.

I heavily relate to Shaylena, from the trauma, to the reaction to men and being clinging when in relationships.

You should do a video of children who were exploited. I’m talking about like beauty pageants, family channels, and stuff like that.

Child exploitation is something that shouldn’t be ignored.

I don’t have cancer thankfully but I have many other severe chronic health problems and I feel so guilty all the time for feeling like I’m wasting my parents money from all my appointments, procedures and surgeries. And feel guilty for stressing and worrying them all the time, it’s tough not to feel guilty especially when America when health care is so freaking expensive. I’ve maxed out our insurance for 6 years in a row, don’t even wanna know how much money my parents had to use for me. Congratulations on surviving cancer, that’s amazing you’re a fighter ❤️

I can't tell you how much I jumped when Anthony mentioned the auto-immune disease, Henoch-Schonlein Purpura (HSP) he had when he was young. As a person who suffered the exact disease at age 12, I had no idea there were many others who felt the way I did, being unable to do anything, being in pain for months, feeling like a burden. Thank you Anthony, its good to know I'm not alone.

"Wanted to feel like loneliness is my choice" "Trying to make myself perfect." "looking at HER pictures" This hits so hard. I did not think I could relate to anything in this video, even though I have been through a lot of trauma as a child and developed many unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Mannnnn…this just confirmed some stuff for me. I was telling my family that I thought I had ptsd from a bad car wreck that I was in and they shrugged it off. My grandpa was in Vietnam and ofc he had to tell me “you know nothing about ptsd”. Anytime I see break lights in front of me my heart races and I get nauseous. Sometimes an “ahhh” comes out of my mouth. It’s crazy how your body responds to things even though you try to fight it.

21:20: When she said "You're never gonna walk into a counselor's office and have the counselor tell you 'Oh no, you're not broken enough.' That's never going to happen." Sadly, she is wrong. That absolutely happens and has happened to me multiple times. People with complicated diagnosis' are OFTEN rejected because they are too broken, and other times, even the best therapists will think you improved enough to stop before you are ready, and then you spiral... And even the example she gives of being told you're not broken enough when you walk in... Therapists will ask how they can help. And if you aren't ready to open up and be honest, they can't help. Therapy isn't perfect and we need to stop perpetuating the idea that, once you go to therapy, everything gets better. I struggled for nearly 20 years to find a therapist that worked for me, and even then, most of what has helped me was doing my own reading and research, advocating for what I believe I needed. Empowering yourself to take control of your mental health is the most incredible thing you can do. I have been given 10 different mental health diagnosises in my life, including both CPTSD and PTSD. And most of getting over it included watching videos like this! Therapy is immeasurably helpful, don't get me wrong. But if you're not ready to help yourself, educate yourself, and listen to people who have survived, it will be a difficult road. So congratulations for even being here to listen to this. If you are struggling, you're already taking the first step to understanding you are not alone ❤

Thanks for covering this. One of the things that I’ve noticed about my CPTSD is that it’s getting worse as I get older. I have had a hard time finding a therapist I can afford. I go through waves of intensity. At the moment I’ve become agoraphobic. I sit on the floor in my bathroom for hours a day. It takes so much work to be around people and I get incredibly embarrassed when I shake and forget simple words. I’ve been able to hold a job, it’s my social time.

I haven't been officially diagnosed with any form of PTSD, but have endured a lot of trauma within my household growing up. I hardly remember anything prior to age 13, and a large portion of that time is completely void of any memory. It really is a surreal feeling to know that child was you at one point, even if it feels like you're not. This is especially the case for me with when I was aged 8 or younger.

Yes! I grew up with very dysfunctional south Asian parents that were not only emotionally volatile/destructive but also financially. Whether a couple gets along with each other or not, no children/teens should be allowed to see their parents argue over their own personal issues/setbacks and not expect all of that to not affect their kids at all. A lot of 1st generation Asian parents not only deny mental health issues within themselves and put/expect their children to be better then them in life but are also not willing to have any open communication/any effort to change their ways/bad habits to make our lives more easier to navigate s we hike we are going to school.

My Grandma is writing a book and she told me how she experienced something absolutely terrible when she was a child. She was at this place where different people lived above her and she was just exploring. She accidentally walked in on a group of people who then proceeded to do very bad things to her. She went into foster homes and when she told her foster parents about her fear of something like that happening again they got scared of her and sent her to a different home. My heart goes out to people in situations like this. ❤️

@A Person You definitely experienced some kind of sexual abuse. You may think what you went through was small, but trust me when I say it is not at ALL. I recently had been manipulated online by someone who put me through emotional abuse, saying he would kill himself and even ENCOURAGED the idea of both me and him committing suicide together, saying it would be "cute", which, of course, IS NOT. I...don't know if I can heal from that... Sometimes I think about it in my life and dwell on the things I regret saying to him (he was very sexual in our replies and I felt I had to be like that because of him telling me he was sexually abused by his father, so I let his behavior slide)... I just...wish I never gave him what he wanted. He clearly never cared for me and was quick to get over me and find someone else to love right when I broke up with him, telling me he "found someone he truly loved". That jackass... He didn't even care I got put in a mental hospital BECAUSE of him...

@A Person you don't have to be physically forced into a sexual act for it to count as sexual assault. in my case, i technically wasn't physically forced either. but i was manipulated and groomed for years into thinking it was okay. i only just recently (within the last few years) realized that it was 100% not okay. your experiences are not any less valid just because there wasn't any physical force! the thing about sexual assault is that it isn't black and white and can happen in many different ways. you're so strong and valid

I’m watching this pretty "late", but I still feel like I need to say what I’m about to say: I’m so glad you did those interviews. Not only because I have so much respect for the people who opened up about their trauma in this, but also because I am once again realizing that I should probably consult a trauma therapist. I’m 20 years old and have been in therapy multiple times by now but I’m still struggling to even feel like I’ve actually experienced trauma in my life. If other people told me they’ve experienced the things I experienced, I’d tell them they’ve definitely been traumatized on multiple occasions. What I’m trying to say is: It’s still extremely hard for myself to feel valid, sometimes even because of the specific things that happened to me, so I wanted to say thank you to everyone taking part in this video. It still is a fight, especially atm because I’m going through a crisis regarding my identity and beliefs, but still, what’s being said in this video resonated a lot with me and even though a big part of me wants to ignore it, I don’t want to anymore. It’s enough. I am going to start looking for local therapists again, I’ve procrastinated to do so for long enough now. Again, thank you.

17:39 I understand this so well. It’s so much easier to talk about physical pain than mental pain or stress. It’s like people think mental pain is made up or an attempt to be dramatic or gain attention, but physical pain must be real since they can see it. Well, you can’t see all physical pain and sometimes you can see mental pain, so you just have to trust the person in pain.

Somehow that never raised any red flags with my mother who occasionally witnessed me doing those things.

This really made me feel so much better about myself. I went through sexual trauma when I was about 5-6 by a neighbor and I carried that with me for years. My parents telling me its not a big deal and me keeping it a secret from everyone, it really made me realize that I'm not alone. I went through sexual trauma twice again after this incident. It was traumatic and every move I made and every person I met could trigger it. I always thought I was being dramatic and since my parents acted like nothing happend, I forced myself to believe the same. I remember sitting in the corner of my room and sobbing cause I felt so alone as a 6 year old, having noone to talk to or turn to. I was in such a dark place and I still am, slowly getting better. Plus, along with child neglect, alot of my friends betraying and leaving me and losing loved ones due to illnesses along with my younger brother, it was a hastle. I had no idea what to do and where to store these emotions. I lived with the same neighbors for another 6-8 years. It was terrifying waking up to that, my parents were good friends with them and everytime I went to their place, I would feel a panic attack coming. I'm glad that I'm not the only one, but upset that so many others had to endure the same pain.

I struggle with Ptsd after witnessing a machete attack when out with my friends. This has affected me in many ways if someone mentions it I can have a flashback or for instance I was out with friends again and I saw someone get put in a chokehold for trying to steal a phone and as a result I had a very vivid flashback and for the rest of the night I thought everyone who I didn't know was carrying a knife. I wake up from nightmares a lot and I'm trying to get over it through therapy. I respect Anthony a lot for bringing these issues to the surface as its often something that people repress. I was listening to his guests and realising we are in the same Boat regardless of the trauma we have experienced/ witnessed. I advise anyone who is struggling to seek therapy as talking can often be the best kind of help.

Hey Anthony! I'm Taylor, 21 from Sydney Australia and have absolutely loved watching your series. I noticed you haven't interviewed people who have Trichotillomania yet, 'trich' is a hair pulling disorder (it falls under the umbrella of body repetitive focused behaviors that are often linked to anxiety or depression) I started pulling my eyelashes out at just 6 years old due to stress and high anxiety, and have struggled through to my adulthood on different areas of my body (including my head and eyebrows) leaving me with patchy bald spots and no facial hair. Trichotillomania is a disorder that is under-represented in the media and people who have it are often deemed "crazy", in fact anyone who I have ever told in my personal life has never heard of it before. I didn't even understand my own disorder from the ages of 6 - 10 until my best friend at the time researched my symptoms online and SHE told me what it was. I was officially diagnosed at 12 years old, have seen many doctors/therapists and even a trich specialist (there is only 1 trich specialist in Sydney to give you an idea lol) and the only real "cure" is habit reversal training and cognitive behavioural therapy. As it is such an unknown disorder I believe bringing awareness to it on your show will help LOTS of people.

Idk if its PTSD but I'd like to share my experience. It was June 12th the day after my cousins birthday. I was dropped of at my grandma's house and my cousin picked me up with her husband. 10 or 15 minutes into the drive the person infront of us slammed their breaks so my cousin's husband did too. The person behind us was to slow. The split second when your car feels like it's going to fly I heard a loud boom and glass flew in front of me. I was in shock and turned around to see the back windshield was shattered. I screamed and immediately started crying. So whenever people use their brakes I clench my seatbelt and immediately sit up straight. I also wear my seatbelt correctly because I didn't before the accident.

Trauma lives in the body and that’s why we have certain physical responses without our control, kinda like a reflex, but with coping mechanisms I’ve learned in trauma therapy I’m sometimes able to obtain control over some of my body’s responses if I can confront what might be triggering that. It’s a constant work in progress but it has helped me.

Hearing autumn's story so similar to mine really validated me a lot, having doubted my own ptsd diagnosis for so long because i didnt experience conventional trauma like childhood sexual abuse. I feel so seen

PTSD is so painful to deal with, I'm glad more people are bringing awareness to it, and I'm glad Anthony is here to talk about it.

I'm so grateful for Autumn story, people usually think PTS is either because of war or sexual abuse but sometimes it's just a bunch of traumatic events or maybe one that affects you terribly.

I was SA on my 7th birthday by my PE teacher at school. I remember being at the lunch room and going up to the teacher and saying " Today it's my birthday" and he said "Happy birthday, you know what I've always wanted to tell you this.. I love you" I got scared so I sat down on a table by myself and ate. Then I got up to go out and play, that's when he aproached me and said that he had a surprise for me in his class room. Being the inocent child I was. I went to the class room with him and he closed the door. That's when it happend. Then my parents made me take a picture with him that same day, my mom still has it. I'm 17 and no one knows about it to this day.

I can relate a lot to Autumn’s PTSD. I’m autistic though and I could never explain my feelings that well. I have CPTSD for similar reasons.

I actually cried at shaylena's story. I now think that I might be a SA victim. I was molested by my male friend since kindergarten, but since we were both kids, I didn't think it counts as SA. He was one year older than me and we would be in the same group in kindergarten. He would make me touch him and said that "all boyfriends and girlfriends do this". He would touch me as well. The abuse ended when I was 11, because I moved out the city and we "broke up". I kinda pushed those memories away, I guess it was my way to cope with it. I also sticked with a though that we are both kids, so he didnt know what he was doing, etc. We would meet from time to time, because our families are good friends. He wouldn't do nor say anything. We would chat as good friends. My breaking point was when, around 15, we were both alone in his room and he started making sexual jokes. That made me highly unconfortable and I told him so, but then he slid his hand under my shirt and started touching my belly. I was horrified, scared, my brain just went numb. Since then I started to think that maybe he knew what he was doing. It also triggered my memories. The situation went on a 2-3 more times until I decided to leave house everytime they visited. The guy also stopped to come. So, I guess, I feel safer now. But I still don't know if it counts as AS. I'm confused and in denial. But this video made me somehow validated and at ease, so I would like to thank Anthony, the crew and guests for it. And if someone is reading this, sorry for making it so long. I just had to get some things off my chest.

At that age he was probably assaulted as well ... It is common in kids that age to act out what happened to him and I am not invalidating you.. I am very sorry

I never see anyone who experienced child on child sexual abuse-- I was 11 years old when a 12 year old boy in the same foster home as me began touching me inappropriately, holding me down and pulling my clothes off, forcing me into uncomfortable positions-- and I lived with him for 9 months-- I was scared to say anything because I didn't know what was happening, I just knew it felt awful and I was terrified of anyone finding out. He told me he would get me pregnant and I was so scared that I had a meltdown-- when the foster home workers asked what was wrong, I said the boy was being mean to me-- I protected him unintentionally because I was ashamed of what was happening to me. We were both kids and that's what messes me up the most.

@Patrycja Wolanin That's absolutely fair! Therapy is good to have as an option but it's always _your_ choice that you make from what _you_ think would be best. Having had past experiences of being invalidated about this makes it even more understandable you would like to take your time before opening up about it again. For the record, they were the ones in the wrong for dismissing you like that; You deserved (and still do) compassion and support, not how they reacted! (Especially from your own parent!) For me personally, speaking with my therapist and my most trusted friend about these memories helped me a lot to "put it together in my head", so you decide of course when you feel ready but just know that you don't have to show up to therapy with all the answers, just willingness to try! I think the more times you can express your experiences in a safe environment it will piece together bit by bit. And I'm trying to not to be overemotional here, but it sucks. It really, really sucks what you went through. I'm so sorry that you went through that, I genuinely wish you the best of luck with dealing with and healing from it

I love this video. I remember vividly while living with a Foster Parent talking to him one day about my PTSD Diagnosis because he didn't understand why I couldn't just be happy now that my life is better. He told me that he didn't like me using the term PTSD because that's reserved for War survivors, people in terrorist attacks, etc. Completely invalidating the YEARS of abuse that I faced from the people around me and other traumatic events that he could never even imagine... I have hesitated using the term ever since even though it's my diagnosis... This video means so much to me. Thank you.

When I was around 13/14 some of the girls in my year were getting involved with the same guy in the sense that he was cohersing them into having sex with him e.t.c One of them happened to be my best friend and she and him continued together to have this friends with benefits relationship for about 2 years after. She would tell me about it every time it would happen and it was very clear it was never something she fully consented to, she didn’t feel happy about it or when doing it, and it was having a major mental health toll on her but I was too young at the time to know what else to do but offer very minimal support because I was 13 I didn’t really understand the actual stretch of the situation. This guy actually then tried to do the same thing to me, and he tried to coherarse me over 5 times in just the course of two weeks, he didn’t take no for an answer and nothing ever happened but I didn’t realize how much of an impact all of these little moments would have on my older teenage years. I’m almost 18 now and I’m heterosexual, but I can’t stand the idea of being with a guy. Even if I’m physically attracted to a guy the idea of being in an even slightly intimate relationship with one makes me feel sick, and I used to consider if I was asexual but I now wonder if it’s because of all these gross experiences with guys in the past. The experiences made me feel genuinely sick so now that’s been brought into my dating life as a young adult. I don’t know what to do

I have PTSD and I am so grateful for this video. Hearing their stories made me realize a lot of the things I do are common. When I was first diagnosed with PTSD I didn’t believe it and was told that there was no way that was accurate by my family. My traumas are both sexual based, neglect, lack of safety, etc. I am triggered by men, noises, alcohol and drugs, screaming, arguments, I have nightmares of my trauma, I constantly feel like someone is touching me, etc. I tried to gain control over my body back and developed an eating disorder and OCD, and anxiety disorders. I guess being told my whole life that things weren’t bad and that I was fine fucked me up. PTSD impacts me daily. I struggle with this thing that some days I don’t think I have it because my experiences weren’t bad enough. I’m working on it in therapy now because as an adult I was finally able to separate myself from my family and get the help I need. It’s insane how much we all struggle in silence alone when we don’t have to. Anyways thank you for sharing this because PTSD is truly common and anyone can live with it. Just know it does get better. ❤️ you are not alone in this.

As a 22 years old male that's been abused sexually by a drum teacher that I've seen like a dad from 12 to 14 years old. I can't help but cry about it alone and trying to cope by drinking and watching videos of people talking about it, so yeah we definitely need this. By the way if anyone reading this has similar problems go check out the therapist episode with Corey Taylor the singer from slipknot. He experienced a lot of trauma and abuse and talks about it openly, it may help you just like it helped me.

I really like what autumn said at the end when Anthony brought up the comments he saw. People go through a lot and we all have different level of how much we can take or handle. Someone with small problems can still experience these things, they shouldn’t need to have experienced an entirely life altering event in order to have ptsd!!

Sexual assault is horrendous no matter who it is, sexual assault from a family member a travesty, losing trust all around. Sexual assault from a parent or sibling… wow it can’t get worse than that truly. My heart goes out to all the victims of any sexual crime.

Yeah it’s really sucky. Having it come from someone who you’re innately supposed to trust is.. very difficult. It makes trust in anything or anyone else pretty much impossible for a long time. How could you ever expect anyone to be reliable and trustworthy when all the major people in your life from the very beginning have never been that way. When all you’ve ever known is that letting go of control and vigilance over your situation will have dire consequences. Bottom line is, it’s totally not rad ( ´_ゝ`) but I guess that’s just how it goes, life gives you shitty cards and you have to sink or swim.
