This is a unique "condition", and I've been reading about it ~ since I have, of course, self-diagnosed myself. It's hard to get an actual diagnosis at this point; I'm not sure it's even in the DSM yet. Most of us are not victims of sex trafficking or war hostages, of course, but there are many roads to complex-PTSD. it's all about how you grew up and how your brain developed. fascinating reading, for those interested. I recommend "Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving" by Pete Walker if you're interested. I am certain this is how I ended up suicidal. But knowledge is power, as they say.
