    OK, so the reason I am posting on this forum is to hopefully prevent some of you from experiencing these debilitating symptoms for as long as I have.

    This could be the true definition of "Complex PTSD" which is not an official psychiatric term. This could be applicable to those of us with a background of long term abuse...

    http://www.emdrhap.org/content/what-is-emdr It seems that EMDR is most effective for classic/specific PTSD -- that is those who have experienced one or more life-threatening experiences. It encourages expression of emotions. I don't quite know how this would work on DP/DR. But some may...

    I am wondering if anyone else has the "Flat affect"? I know I do, and sometimes I think it creeps people out. I am very harmless but I can totally understand how creepy or odd someone would appear if they looked flat lined like I do haha. I have always had the flat affect since my teen years and...

    So I think I know what is wrong with me personally...

I started today and I was able...

    Hi everyone, I don't really post anything here, except if i'd have something positive to say. I'd hate to discourage people and stuff. Basically I had severe Dp for 2 years ( I believe it was dp). I can't go into detail about how it developed. Last year I started a healing journey, and I did...
