I was convinced I had it, she was not. Turns out neither of us was wrong and neither of us was right. As you’ve already guessed from the title, complex PTSD (C-PTSD) is what I’m talking about today.

If you haven’t heard of it, you are in good company because in most parts of North America, it isn’t an official diagnosis just yet.
