I am Canadian, 25. I've struggled with PTSD and SH since my mother had a severe heart attack and became severely brain damaged, then passed away 5 years later. from that there have been many family struggles, which led to a big part of the PTSD. I learned how to cope and positively turned my life around. however, recently I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondilitis, the worst symptom of which is arthritis (for me). b/c of this its been a roller coaster of fluctuating symptoms that have certainly taken a tole on my emotional health. I have returned to these communities seeking peers with guidance and support, which I found on here many years ago.
