Anonymous asked: Can you get PTSD from being emotionally abused?
They’ve done studies in domestic violence relationships about the corollary between PTSD and emotional and physical violence. and previously it was assumed that only physical violence caused PTSD and what they found was that actually.. emotional violence seemed to be more of the tell of whether or not the person would end up with PTSD.
Emotional abuse does tend to cause more of the C-PTSD which stands for Complex PTSD. This is a sub category of PTSD and I think.. it finally officially made it into the DSM? I maybe wrong though. But it is definitely a term used quite a bite.
and unfortunately.. complex ptsd tends to be a little bit harder to treat than PTSD. because it usually is from long term exposure to trauma rather than say.. a one time incident.
Abuse is abuse.
and never let anyone invalidate what you went through because it was ‘just’ emotional abuse. It is still abuse and your pain is still valid.
