Post traumatic stress disorder, commonly known and referred to as PTSD, is still widely considered to be a taboo or something that is related only to people who went to war. Contrary to common belief, post traumatic stress disorder is much more popular and spread than people like to believe. The reason is because PTSD can be found in almost any adult who, for example, was abused as a child. Women who were victims of sexual abuse might suffer from PTSD. Therefore, this type of disorder is not just to be considered a consequence of people who went to war and saw things that human beings cannot even begin to describe for how raw and brutal they were. This disorder includes all the traumatic events and experiences that people can go through, such as abuse, violence, accidents and of course war. Since it is such a big taboo still, people tend not to talk about it. The good news is that we have created the AnxietySocialNet so that people who suffer from this disorder can talk about it openly and feeling safe.
What is AnxietySocialNet?
We built our website with one person in mind, you. We wanted to provide our members with a solid, comfortable and safe environment that presents all the necessary tools a PTSD sufferer needs on a daily basis to manage to cope with the disorder. From when you sign on, you will have access to your own profile, which can be as detailed as you want it to be. Then you will see that you have a list of many other tools, such as blogging, keeping a diary, finding other people who just like you have to deal with PTSD. You will also have the opportunity to get to know therapists who live and operate right in your city so that you have the rare opportunity to get to know your counselor before you meet him.
How can I get to know a therapist?
The AnxietySocialNet is the first website that puts therapists and patients in direct contact online. In fact, just like members can sign up, therapists can also create their profile and have access to the same tools. Thanks to an accurate and trustworthy rating system, you will see which psychologists are more popular and trustworthy. Therapists are rated by other members who probably have had personal experiences with them. Therefore, by reading a counselor’s profile, looking at his pictures, getting to know him through his answers and blog posts, you will get a feeling of whether or not he is the right one for you.
What is a PTSD online support group?
A PTSD online support group is a place where people who suffer from this disorder can meet, get to know each other, discover that, contrary to what they first thought, they are not alone in this struggle. Moreover, you can exchange life stories, coping methods and techniques and, most importantly, give each other motivation and strength to keep on battling the disorder. The PTSD support group, just like any other online support group on the AnxietySocialNet, is free of charge.
