Hi everyone. I guess I got a little carried away with posting before I actually introduced myself here. :eek:

I'm in my early 50's and was diagnosed with depression in my late 20's. I've struggled with trying to "get better" through anti-depressant/anti-anxiety meds (which I'm still on), psychiatric counselling, meditation, etc.

I always knew there was so much more wrong with me than depression alone, but it wasn't until nearly 2 years ago that a crisis situation put me in touch with a wonderful doctor who diagnosed me with Complex PTSD. It all began to make sense after that. It's hard to come to terms with what I experienced as a child, but at least now I KNOW what's wrong with me.

As someone who has Complex PTSD, I've always tried to "fix things on my own" because I could never count on anyone, but trying to "fix" this on my own isn't working... and I'm starting to taking the steps necessary to get proper help.

I know it's going to be a long, sometimes painful, journey, but... one has to take that first step to recovery or it will never get better than this.
