My Story

My struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The trauma I experienced on the 8th October 2004 changed, not just me but my life dramatically.  I felt ashamed, scared, helpless, angry, guilty and sad.  I was unable to leave my house for just over a year due to fear and anxiety and even now i can't sleep alone,(without another adult) in the house.  I experience panic attacks in the dark, which is difficult to explain to my 6 year old son.  I still have flash-backs, nightmares,  depression and avoid tv shows and the media that discuss sexual assault but, with help from charities like Beyond Blue, i've learned many types of coping strategies. Every year around the 8th October i disassociate from the world but am very fortunate that my partner understands and is supportive.

One of the most important things i learned from this, is that it's never too late to seek help.  Raisng funds, so charities like this can continue to help and support people like me is vital for the future.
