I’ve been taking some time off and away from everybody and kind of trying to figure out what’s going on with me. Between research and just having conversation with other people. I have been exerting almost all of the signs of traumatic brain injury as well as complex PTSD which I knew I had that before I came to Texas. I am needing to look into resources of trying to get back into counseling and to find out more on what.i can do that i can trust being sex worker friendly.

I can’t even get through writing typing this…damn smh….umm The things that happened to me last year and the first couple of months this year we’re pretty damn bad I’m realizing I don’t think I even know or realized just how bad it was.

And I guess I’ll just go ahead and I’ll take this opportunity and speak it out loud here. For those who have noticed I’ve been very defensive, I’ve been very defensive because I’m tired of getting beat down and hurt with doing this job. I’m very defensive because I’m trying to start healing from last year and with whats been going on this year and I can’t seem to start healing if I keep getting hurt like I’ve been. I’m very defensive because I’m trying to stand up for myself and there’s been a lot of people who just keep continue to beat me down and into a corner this has been very very hard for me.

I got an email the other night stating a few things one of those things was of me being defensive so I’m explaining this.

He also mentioned that he was a little terrified to email me. I want to say something about that and I want to say that you have no idea how terrified I am of every one of you everybody now I’m very terrified I’ve had a lot of fear instilled in me in the last couple of years and I fear every one of you more than you have any idea about me

With the amount of different horrible things that’s happened to me, trying to stop getting hurt, all the stuff, the cyber bullying and everything it has instilled a lot of fear in me a whole lot so I wanted to just bring that up and let you know that because of the complex PTSD from before I got here and moved here. It seems like when I get scared I get violent out of being scared because I’ve been beat up and everything in my life so much with a lot of abuse and that’s why.

The third thing that was mentioned in that email I want to bring up is the horror stories and that’s the way it was quoted was horror stories on my website in the dread on the contact and screening pages.

I’m going to publicly you know I’ve been…..this is so hard for me I’m not going to lie.

ok… customers seem to look at that as so negative but I’m going to say something, THOSE horror stories it’s NOT a story it’s what I’ve been living and if it’s such horror for you to read then you can’t even imagine what it is for me to go through day and day out day and day out.

Yes my whole site is of it and you know what I have been begging pleading asking demanding I have tried to everything possible to try to get you out to see that I continually getting hurt. and I’m simply have just been begging and everything else just for you to stop hurting me. Thats simply it. I just want NOT get hurt anymore or have death threats or anymore or have somebody strange scaring the shit out of me knocking at my door stalking me it just want to be able to do my job in peace and not get hurt anymore.

those of you who have told me on here i need to go die a corona virus death and that have came to my site just to tell me that i should just go ahead and die, im gonna let everyone of you know, im very lucky to have actually have made it out alive through my own child wanting to kill me. that did happened, its VERY REAL AND i continue to live it everyday, and i continue to fear my own child, especially now that he is 18. those of you who have told me those kinds of things, thats a triggers and brings flashbacks of what i was dealing with before imoved hee. and is the very reason why i acr like i always do.

For a good part of all of us here, we are parents, have been parents…whatever ya know im trying to say..i hope..anyways, can you please at least TRY to imagine dealing with your child that is 11/12 years old wanting and trying to kill you….i KNOW that i DID say TRY. it’s not something thats easy to deal with. I had went from doing counsling from 3 times a week, down to 2, down to once a week and i had JUST FINISHED WHEN I MOVED HERE.i was supposed to continue my own …by writitng…which is my website …….and to endure the continued shit that customers, potential customers and haters have put my through it compounded soooo much on top of my son trying to blackmail right after i moved here on top of what all he done before that. ummmm

for any one of you to contact me without a proper introuduction and with fake emails and to contnuiue to contact me by phone, IT SCARES THE LIVING FUCK OUT OF ME, FOR ONE…BECAUSE OF WHAT I HAVE ALREADY DEALT WITH BEFORE MOVING HERE.

god yall have no idea how hard this is for me to speak about all this…..

ALL OF THESE SYMPTOMS….I HAVE I LOST TIME ON SUNDAY AGAIN..MOTHERS DAY WAS SO HARD ON ME THA I LOST MEMORY AGAIN, MY SPEECH….THE STUTTER HAS GOTTEN WAY WORSE. THE SHAKES IN MY HANDS, ARE WORSE…I CANT HARDLY TYPE ANYMORE.

What causes PTSD?

https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/types-of-mental-health-problems/post-traumatic-stress-disorder-ptsd/causes-of-ptsd/

The situations we find traumatic can vary from person to person. There are many different harmful or life-threatening events that might cause someone to develop PTSD. For example:

  • being involved in a car crash
  • being violently attacked
  • being raped or sexually assaulted
  • being abused, harassed or bullied
  • being kidnapped or held hostage
  • seeing other people hurt or killed, including in the course of your job
  • doing a job where you repeatedly see distressing images or hear details of traumatic events
  • traumatic childbirth, either as a mother or a partner witnessing a traumatic birth
  • extreme violence or war, including military combat
  • surviving a terrorist attack
  • surviving a natural disaster, such as flooding or an earthquake
  • being diagnosed with a life-threatening condition
  • losing someone close to you in particularly upsetting circumstances
  • learning that traumatic events have affected someone close to you (sometimes called secondary trauma)
  • any event in which you fear for your life.

‘Secondary’ means that although the original (primary) trauma happened to someone else, the impact it’s having in your life is traumatic for you. It doesn’t mean it’s any less significant than any other kind of PTSD, or any easier to deal with. Our page for friends and family has some tips on looking after yourself.

Repeatedly witnessing or hearing about traumatic events in the course of your job is also sometimes called ‘secondary trauma’, although this experience is increasingly thought of by professionals as an original (primary) trauma.

Are some people more at risk of PTSD?

Some factors may make you more vulnerable to developing PTSD, or may make the problems you experience more severe, including:

  • experiencing repeated trauma
  • getting physically hurt or feeling pain
  • having little or no support from friends, family or professionals
  • dealing with extra stress at the same time, such as bereavement or money worries
  • previously experiencing anxiety or depression.

Anyone can experience traumatic events, but you may be particularly likely to have experienced trauma if you:

  • work in a high-risk occupation, such as the emergency services or armed forces
  • are a refugee or asylum seeker
  • were taken into foster care.

(See our pages on how to manage stressbereavementabusemoney and mental healthanxiety and panic attacks and depression for more information on these topics.)


What is complex PTSD?

Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (complex PTSD, sometimes abbreviated to c-PTSD or CPTSD) is a condition where you experience some symptoms of PTSD along with some additional symptoms, such as:

  • difficulty controlling your emotions
  • feeling very hostile or distrustful towards the world
  • constant feelings of emptiness or hopelessness
  • feeling as if you are permanently damaged or worthless
  • feeling as if you are completely different to other people
  • feeling like nobody can understand what happened to you
  • avoiding friendships and relationships, or finding them very difficult
  • often experiencing dissociative symptoms such as depersonalisation or derealisation
  • regular suicidal feelings.

If you have complex PTSD you may be particularly likely to experience what some people call an ’emotional flashback’, in which you have intense feelings that you originally felt during the trauma, such as fear, shame, sadness or despair. You might react to events in the present as if they are causing these feelings, without realising that you are having a flashback.

(See our sections What are flashbacks? and tips for coping with flashbacks for more information.)

What causes complex PTSD?

The types of traumatic events that can cause complex PTSD include:

  • childhood abuse, neglect or abandonment
  • ongoing domestic violence or abuse
  • repeatedly witnessing violence or abuse
  • being forced to become a sex worker
  • torture, kidnapping or slavery
  • being a prisoner of war.

You are more likely to develop complex PTSD if:

  • you experienced trauma at an early age
  • the trauma lasted for a long time
  • escape or rescue were unlikely or impossible
  • you have experienced multiple traumas
  • you were harmed by someone close to you.
