It turns out I have been diagnosed with chronic PTSD. The trigger of my PTSD goes way back to my youth at the innocent age of seven. I was molested twice by two different very close family members. Now that I am 36 all the trauma from my childhood has come out to haunt me. I don’t know why it’s happening now, but my psychologist and therapist think that it is happening since I am trying to raise my three girls the best way I can and they are now at the age when I was the victim of trauma.

All of these years I’ve kept all inside like it was something normal that just happens. Up until now that I have let it out, I realize nothing about what has happened to me is normal. The sad part about it is that now I beat myself up every day and have such low self-esteem. All of these little things I bottled have exploded, and there is nothing that I can do about it. My trauma was caused by sick people, and it isn’t even my fault. I try to deal with it the best way I can, and I won’t let it affect my daughters.
