Just noticed that this doesn't seem to be covered by the Forum. As such I have no experience of the condition, but I have known an ex solider who suffered from the condition after service in Ulster, and have come across others who suffer from the condition over the years. I thought that maybe there should be a space for them if they come across the forum?

As far as I know, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is classified as an anxiety disorder... so we've added some sub-forums for different types of anxieties, because it wouldn't really be immediately apparent that things like PTSD or obsessive-compulsive behaviours are subsections of anxiety :).
Thanks for the tip!

at the risk of sounding pedantic...

complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) is another name for BPD (although, some would shoot me down for saying such a thing) and thus you could argue that it should go in the PD section

I think I am just being difficult though ;)
