    Hi  I just need a bit of support and thought posting here might help. I haven’t talked to friends or anything about how I’m feeling because I’m worried they will think I’m mad.

    Basically 4 years ago I was diagnosed with complex ptsd. I’m on quite a bit of medication and did thearpy etc.  January I finished thearpy because I wasn’t coping with flashbacks etc. I need to be as fully functional as possible as I’m a single mum with 2 little ones.

    A big part of my symptoms are feeling the works isn’t real, and people are not real. These symptoms got alot better with medication etc but since covid 19 I am now feeling proper strange.

    I keep wondering if I will wake up and am dreaming all of this.

    I know this sounds so odd but I’m finding it all so hard and I was just wondering if anyone else was feeling this way. I feel very confused with everything. In thearpy I had just begun to accept the world was a safe place and I was safe and I really felt kind of safe. But now I don’t feel safe at all.

    I feel that the world is a cruel horrible place, so much devastation and loss with this covid 19.

    I just feel sad and scared and not real.

    Have you contacted your doctor?

    In my experience the more you keep it to yourself, the worse mental health gets. So seeking help via a mental health forum or via your doctor’s may be helpful?

    This is certainly RELAPSE of PTSD, which i think is worsened by COVID.  Since COVID IS not going to be around for long (hopefully) , your symptoms are relative so i advise u to seek help from your GP and perhaps few sessions of CBT will improve your condition.

    Hi @Loulou1982….sorry to hear this, I hope you can the support you need at the moment. GPs are  still working and treating people who need it, they’re just working in a different way. As far as I can tell they’re not all overwhelmed at this point so I’d definitely suggest giving them a call and see if you get through…nothing to feel stupid about either.

    Alot can talk to you over the phone or arrange a video consultation.

    You’re home alone with 2 kids (like me) with cPTSD & that’s not easy, do think about getting help xxxxx
