I was diagnosed with Complex PTSD in November (on top of my previous diagnoses) and at the same time told I can't be helped. This was after nearly 2 hours of discussing my whole life with a complete stranger. I had overdosed and was given info to refer myself to this place and had made an effort. What made it worse was his reaction to what I had told him about my life, I know it's been constant pain but to hear the shock and someone saying my problems are so complex that they can't help me, them saying they don't understand how I could endure certain things for so so long was like a stab in the heart. It made me feel like I'm more broken than I thought, almost like I've been conditioned to minimise the severity of things (which I obviously see now) it's scary. Since then I just can't deal with professionals and asking for help because of the rejection and disappointment. Actually this has happened twice now.
Anyone else had this kind of experience? I'm finding it hard to start the search again.
