Comments on: The Pain of Weeping: Trapped, When All I Want to Do Is Splash This Life Sexual Abuse and MDSA: how does a "victim" become a "survivor?" Thu, 15 Sep 2016 01:48:59 +0000 hourly 1 By: Brittany Ann Thu, 15 Sep 2016 01:48:59 +0000 Hi Hannah,

That is my personal belief as well, and much research would have it that way.

I don’t believe that I would have a mental health disorder if not for the PTSD from childhood. Though it is curious to me how it affected me and not my brother and sister.

Thanks for your comment,

Particularly childhood abuse, as you mentioned, it is just when the brain is developing. My personal belief is abuse can trigger mental health conditions.
