I am here to hopefully lend some support to others as well as get some support when I need it. My story pretty much stems from family mental illness that was not my own. Growing up I led a well adjusted life for the most part, I was pretty social, did extremely well in school, and into a lot of activities especially volleyball. The issue was I had an older brother who had severe mental health issue. This didn't bother me and I still loved him. My parents were great and treated us great. One day when I was 11 years old and my brother was 15, I guess he couldn't handle things anymore. This is really hard for me. My brother killed my parents and injured myself.. I suppose he thought he killed all of us as he went off and killed himself. I can still visualize and hear all of it happening in my head. I to this day ask myself why God did not take me as well. I wish he did many times. I now live with my Aunt and Uncle and I owe them everything for keeping me going and focused on bettering my life for my future. I suffer from CPTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder & Major depressive Disorder.

Hey Happy Thanksgiving and nice to meet you. I can relate to childhood trauma mine left me with schizophrenia, social anxiety and we'll just ruined my Outlook on life. Days are a struggle it's hard to have gone through so much pain as a child and then it leaves you mentally ill, like life didn't give you a chance. Now I just isolate myself from the world. And then I found this site and realized I wasn't alone if you find yourself needing someone to talk to I could use a friend to. :)

My life was fine and one traumatic incident blew everything out of whack. It is now a struggle for me everyday. I still try to make it through and with the support of my Aunt & Uncle and my Therapist and Psychiatrist, but it isn't easy many days.

Thank You, I do take life one day at a time. I still wonder each day why am I here. Why did I get spared and my mom and dad not? Why did my brother not seek help before doing what he did? I don't think I will ever get answers to these questions that fill my head everyday, but the support I have with my Psychiatrist and Therapist and especially my Aunt and Uncle who I live with now they are keeping me on the right path.
