My husband has CPTSD from 20 years in a DV relationship with someone who you would probably call a narcissist.

I met him 21/2 years ago and we are now married. Since we got married a year ago his CPTSD has erupted into our lives taking us both by surprise.

Is there anyone on this forum who cares for someone with CPTSD? I have 4 children of my own, 3 with special needs including Autism. I also look after my step daughter who is my husband's daughter. It's a complex household and the needs of everyone conflict time and again. We are drowning.

I am sorry to hear you have so much to worry you.

I don't have experience of ptsd, are you/he getting help for that?

I only have a small family so I imagine you can be overwhelmed by such a big one.
I'll listen if you want to tell me in what ways you are drowning

Hi there

It' sounds like you're going through an awful lot. My partner has PTSD and it's awful.

I'll listen to anything you have to say about it. Lei it all pour out. Here for you.
