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.

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...

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.
