Anyone here have experience with C-PTSD?

I just became aware of this, in the context of looking for answers for a family member. It sure makes a lot of sense.

1. What does the 'C' stand for?

I'm unfamiliar with it.

3. The c stands for 'complex'

Traditionally PTSD results within a few months following a single traumatic experience

cPTSD is a similar condition but it follows multiple exposures to trauma and a sense of not being able to get free of them...

4. Thank you

That would be a tough diagnoses to have. One trama is bad enough.

5. I have it.

When I was diagnosed, they said PTSD, but maybe the C hadn't been added yet.

I clearly qualify for the C, though.
