Just a quick update

Hi a psychologist says CARL58 has C-PTSD with serious symptoms.10 yrs I've battled to get him help,she was very pleasant but narked that this wasn't picked up before,she said it's a long rd ahead ,it's been allowed to fester for way to long treatment will start in a cple of wks, but she can't rush him she needs  to  earn his trust.the self harming is his coping mechanism with trauma,at last someone's listening I'm very annoyed that it's taken so long because it's been affecting him so much he's lost touch with reality,so that's the latest, CARL58 poorly but more frightened than anything a mixture of problems she also believes in hypnosis therapy but that's further down line take care all Jen
