12 Signs You Might Be Suffering From PTSD
Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) refers to a state in which we are severely impacted in the present by emotional neglect in our childhoods.

The symptoms include high anxiety, low self-esteem, a constant sense of dread - and (often) difficulty being able to sleep. By learning more about our condition, we can  (probably through the help of psychotherapy) hope to free ourselves and be more at ease in the world.
