Stupid things people say to someone with PTSD/C-PTSD
- It’s in the past, just move on
- Isn’t that something only soldiers/war veterans get?
- Oh come on! It wasn’t that bad
- It’s not like you went to war though
- Stop dwelling on ancient history
- Just try to take your mind off of it, you will be fine
- Are you sure you have PTSD/C-PTSD?
- Stop using it as an excuse
- Awww you got triggered? Stop being so sensitive
- You don’t seem like you have PTSD
- C-PTSD doesn’t exist, you are just being dramatic
- Only veterans can get PTSD. Your trauma isn’t that bad
- What did you expect if you (insert any victim blaming comment you can think of)?
- Get over it
- It’s all in you head
Got any more?
