Hi! Im just wanting to get some advise on complex PTSD. My partner was diagnosed with PTSD in 2013 due to something that happened to him when he was just a child. Ive been doing some research and I actually believe he has been mis-diagnosed. My reason for this is because he suffers with all the symptoms of cPTSD and the cause of his PTSD was from a young age and from someone very close to him. He was seeing a therapist off his own back who wanted to try the EMDR once she had listened to what had actually happened to him. Surely his doctor should've picked up on his symptons etc, and stated that he needed this treatment and not just his therapist? I hate seeing him when hes having one of his episodes, and they are lasting even longer than before which have now resulted in him losing his job. I dont really know what im looking for in here but, some advice or help with what to do next would be amazing!
