Hi @courtneylage ,
Thanks so much for sharing your powerful words here- I just wanted to let you know that I made a small edit to remove your name, just to keep your post in line with our community guidelines around staying anonymous
As a parent myself, (who also raised my first child alone for the first 4 years of her life) I can't even begin to imagine what you and your children have been through over the last 8 or more years.
It sounds like you have been able to use your lived experience in a really purposeful way through your work with other families and in your advocacy work , and I'm sure that you will change many lives for the better through your work. Are you and your family still getting support with your c-PTSD?
Do you mind if I ask what you found helpful in your own recovery journey? I know we have a lot of other parents reading who may also be recovering from complex trauma, and hearing from people who've walked the same path is really powerful.
Thank you so much for sharing your story here, wishing you and your family all the very best
