Had a PTSD related breakdown recently so I thought I'd draw about it a bit over the course of a couple comics.

To this day I can't really handle being in an enclosed space with an authority figure still. If it's an open room that I have access to an escape route or if there's more than one adult, I'm fine. If I feel trapped, I'll just start crying until I'm out.

I'm 37 and this still happens. Child abuse is pretty messed up. As for my teacher there, it was pretty impressive. He just talked normally and, thankfully, did not address my continuous crying. I get pretty embarrassed when it happens.

I still have recurring nightmares of not being able to escape either due to a maze or, my favorite, a hallway that continually stretches.

But yeah. I can't have meetings with my boss in his office, haha.

I understand how you feel. I don't like talking to people who weren't abused as a child, because, well, it always turns into, why didn't you do something about it?

I just stop talking when it's one on one with authority, because I feel like I'm a disappointment and going to get shot down.

@zinnzinnluv: Uh. Thanks, dude.

@Reealt: Man. Really? People still say that shit to you? That's fucking messed up and it pisses me off to no end. People like that are complete shits. People like that don't know what it's like to feel completely powerless and hopeless. It's terrifying and it happens all the time.

Yeah. It's amazing that people can have that much power over your psychology. It's messed up.

@daviddoesntgetit: I can't say I've had it this bad, but I get super nervous when I have to talk to a crowd of people. Since I was bullied growing up, having all those eyes staring at me is something that terrifies the living shit outta me...
