Hello everyone,

I decided to join this forum because I have struggled with anxiety and depression since I was in my teens and I am now 30 years old. It became clear the last few years that I definitely have some sort of PTSD as a result of many years of bullying and misunderstandings that stemmed from having aspergers syndrome or autism spectrum disorder. I once thought PTSD was only caused by a few big traumatic events or one big traumatic event. But I now realize that it can be caused by repetitive "smaller" traumatic experiences. I feel like PTSD is holding me back in life and is my biggest obstacle. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is something I will always live with and it is both good and bad. Anyway, I'm not here for a pity party, but I hope I can learn some things from this site and talk with others who have struggled with similar issues.
