Complex-PTSD: CiCi’s Story

How the brain is affected by PTSD, what Chronic PTSD is, and my relationship with it, including my diagnosis, symptoms, and how I cope.


The ups and downs of quarantine and the struggles I’ve faced so far including mental illness, chronic pain flares, and happier things like my dog’s first birthday.

This is not a good poem

Why am I not writing?
There is too much to say,
And I’m still learning the language.
