Hey Guys,

I'm hoping I'm not breaking any community rules with this but I'd really like to share something.

I just had a talk with a doctor because my mental health isn't really in the best shape and it's very likely I'm struggling with PTMD due to an accident I had 4 years ago. The doctor effectively said It's a good idea to see a therapist and I made an appointment already.

The reason I'm sharing this is because I feel like In the past I sometimes reacted a bit to aggressive/extreme to certain things and to anyone who was on the receiving end of one of those I would like to apologize because I consider my mental state a reason and not an excuse. I also genuinely didn't know at the time I was struggling with this and now I'm aware so I hope it won't happen again ever.

I think, I've struggled with this for the better part of the last 4 years but could always keep it in check pretty well so it didn't come out that much. However, due to covid and thesis stress lately it's been starting to get the better of me a lot more. I've been having lots of flashbacks and sleeping very badly.

I also would like to stress I'm not looking for anyone to take the role of therapist for me because I really think this is something for a professional to deal with and I don't want to drop this on anyone's roof.

If you catch me being not as happy/engaging as you're used to of me this is also probably the reason that is the case.

If you made it this far, thank you 🙏

    It takes a lot of courage to share such a personal thing, so thank you for trusting us with this.
    Seeking for professional help is a big and important step to your recovery. I'm proud of you, 'cause it's not an easy thing to do, but you were able to realize you need it. It will definitely help you a lot!
    I don't suffer from PTSD, but I also struggle with my mental health. So, if you ever feel the need to talk or vent, you can hit me up.
    I know you can overcome this, and we are all here for you.
    Much love! ❤
