I have CPTSD.
Complexe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, now that's a mouthful, isn't it? I didn't know this mental illness existed until I was diagnosed with it a few months ago. CPTSD is described as a condition where you experience symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder but, with some complexity. You can't control your emotions, you get very angry and feel distrustful towards the world, you constantly feel empty and hopeless, you feel like no one can understand you or you avoid friendships and relationships because you find them too difficult to upkeep. Maybe I should add this to my Tinder profile haha! I sound like a catch...Anik MarchandPublished 4 days ago in Psyche
Wrong Side of Thirty
Today, my mom told me she used to think I was the sane one of the family until I moved in her and now she sees how untrue that is. I’m smart, though, she’ll give me that. I’m really not sure what any of that means, since I’ve been the same externally as I’ve always been. She says a few other things after that, each one stings a bit more than the last. I’m on the wrong side of thirty living with my mother. I coddle my children. My goals of moving back out of her house are lofty. How much she’s helped me in the past and how it just wasn’t enough. She’s mourning her independence. I smile at that one. She’s run away at parental responsibility my whole life, it doesn’t surprise me she feels that way.

I don't want to be dead
My 1979 Chevy pickup has me driving into Bozeman with its downtown spruced up, all bright and cheerful for the holidays. It’s cold outside.
