Article Revival: June is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder awareness month - June 8th 2018, 11:49 PM

June is PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) awareness month. An author explains the difference between CPTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and PTSD. They provide some helpful guides that you can try if you experience CPTSD or PTSD. To learn more about the difference between CPTSD and PTSD you can read the article. http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f80-m...53-cptsd-ptsd/

Do you have a better understanding of the differences between CPTSD and PTSD after reading the article?

Did you find the article informative with ways you can process the trauma?

Finally, at the end of the article, there are suggested readings available for you if you wanted to know more about PTSD, do you think the readings are helpful?

It was not until I read about this article that I learned about CPTSD. I ended up doing a lot of research and I realized that I likely have CPTSD. The only issue is that, currently, I don't have doctors who are willing to diagnose me. I'd love to see an article discussing the issues people face with getting diagnosed with CPTSD. My understanding is that a lot of it is based on insurance stuff (for the usa) but I could be wrong. I am just part of groups where people's doctors tell them there is no code for CPTSD so they can't diagnose it. However, being diagnosed can help with treating it.

I've always been fascinated with PTSD vs CPTSD and this article explains it really well!

CPTSD isn't officially recognised here in the UK but I do know that it is becoming more well known and I have known people to get re-diagnosed with CPTSD after being diagnosed with a personality disorder as there is an ovelap in symptoms, which the article mentions.

I also really like how the article talks about creating a safe space, support system and liked the further readings on grounding techniques as that's something I need to work on!

I hate how it isn't really recognized yet knowing someone has it can actually help with treatment. I have heard that people are fighting to get it recognized in the DSM so hopefully that will end up happening.

I didn't realize it wasn't recognized in the UK because most the people I've talked to in the UK felt it was odd that the USA doesn't recognize it. I do know most people have to fight for the diagnosis.

I think getting diagnosed would help my treatment but I don't want to deal with the fight right now, you know?

At least I don't think it's recognised here. On health websites, there's usually a small section on CPTSD after PTSD (I've even seen a website comment on misdiagnosis with a personality disorder), but I know it's not in the ICD or DSM so trying to get an official diagnosis would be difficult. I do hope it ends up in the DSM (and ICD) though!

And I totally agree with how getting a diagnosis, and more importantly, the right diagnosis would help with treatment. But yeah, having to fight for it must be stressful.

It probably isn't recognized. I know some doctors will admit that they believe it is something that should be recognized but for insurance purposes they have to put the PTSD code. That being said, if the doctor will recognize it they can still treat for CPTSD. That's the fun thing about USA...We have a lot of stuff that's done due to insurance issues and things like that.

Unfortunately I have heard doctors say they don't believe CPTSD is real and that makes me quite mad because it prevents the proper treatment.

That is a real shame about having to put PTSD for insurance purposes. That's also maddening that some doctors don't think it exists!

On the plus side, I just found out that CPTSD is in the draft version of ICD-11 which is to be finalised this year- yay! Hopefully, that will raise more awareness and get more diagnosed and treated!
