    That sounds like a difficult situation. Why do you think you felt that way? And how do you feel in your current place?

    I think this is such a true statement @ellie2000 ! Very important to explore why your emotions might be different now living in a different situation. Lots of research into 'sleep hygiene' (basically how people can get a better night's sleep) shows that what you're feeling makes a lot of sense. Typically, the research shows that when people have one designated space for sleeping and one for eating/working/anything else they are able to get a better night's sleep because that bedroom is so highly linked/related to sleeping and nothing else.

    In your case, it seems like having all this additional space leaves you with room to move away from difficult emotions and get some space rather than stewing in the same area of the house that the bad feelings began in. <3

    I think the question about still needing therapy is also very important. For many people with PTSD, they take part in therapy for a long time, some for their whole lives and it's not because they are 'broken' or anything else 'abnormal' simply because it helps them to cope with their day-to-day life following trauma. How do you feel about still needing therapy?

    In terms of the PTSD vs. Complex PTSD, there is some info out there that I will link below. The main difference that people talk about between the two is that CPTSD is more likely to happen if the person has experienced trauma at a younger age over a period of time, compared with those who may face a singular trauma in their adult life. There are some differences in symptoms too, some that are mentioned are: persistent negative beliefs about yourself, avoidance of relationships or difficulty trusting others and difficulty in managing emotions. What do you think about this?
