Hope After PTSD

“I am an incest survivor, which led me into a teenage marriage full of violence and abuse that lasted over 14 years.  I had been diagnosed with clinical depression, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), D.I.D. and then Bi-polar disorder.  Various doctors placed this ‘alphabet soup’ of diagnoses on me, making me feel more and more damaged and hopeless. Amazingly, my therapist at the Center never saw me as damaged or hopeless.  No matter which symptoms I was displaying at any given time, she never seemed overwhelmed or exasperated.  She just patiently mirrored the “healthy” me, and it slowly began to sink in.  I began to see that these diagnoses didn’t define me, and they have evaporated.”
