Ray Erickson

Today's episode is focused on a review of the DSM5 criteria for PTSD along with the criteria  for C-PTSD in the soon to be ICD11.  I will be using myself as the example and because of time restraints, I will not be addressing all of the criteria, only those that occur with me.

This episode can really help those of you who are struggling with trying to figure out what the heck is going on. I did that for 30 years and I was a psychotherapist working with people with PTSD. Our brains do whatever it needs to do to keep us alive and for me that meant revealing my truth at a time when I could manage this new understanding. 

Explore the internet for information. The more information you have, the better you will be able to heal from those tragic and traumatizing life experiences. Here is one example of a Google search I made: 

C-PTSD Symptoms and Treatments

Here are a couple of sits that are really dialed into the problem of PTSD. You will be the best judge as to where you get your information from, but it is important to take action and learn about what is going on and what you can do about it. The key to recovery is to stop blaming others and take responsibility for your life. Stop being a victim.
