10 Symptoms of C-PTSD
1. recurrent and intrusive thoughts or dreams

2. mental and physical reactions to reminders of the traumatic event

3. avoidance of people, places, things, or events that remind you of the trauma

4.  bad moods that stick around

5. detachment and disinterest

6. difficulty forming close relationships

7. disconnection or disassociation. This is a way of coping with stress and events that are too hard to handle. (For me this manifested as maladaptive daydreaming.)

8. suicidal thoughts

9. constantly feeling on high alert which can affect your sleep patterns and make you startle easily

10. loss of systems of meanings. This can refer to a loss of faith in long-held beliefs, like God. It can also refer to a sense of despair or hopelessness in the world.
