I was diagnosed with PTSD at 12 years old. Just because someone seems fine doesn't mean they are. PTSD never goes away, it stays for life and you can be triggered at any moment. Thank you to my amazing man who has been by my side for all attacks since we were 12 till now
Traumatized people lose faith that good things can happen and people can be kind and trustworthy. They feel hopeless, often believing that the future will be as bad as the past, or that they will not live long enough to experience a good future.
