What are the most common symptoms of C-PTSD?
Narcissistic Family Files shares, “C-PTSD includes a wide range of disabling symptoms, including some or all of the following disturbances”:
- generalized fear, anxiety, and agitation;
- nightmares and/or night terrors;
- difficulty trusting;
- self-destructive behavior; and
- intrusive thoughts.
Being socially exposed to someone who is Cluster B or their Enablers more than one time tends to cause any morally sane and empathic person to question their sanity as well as their very humanity (most commonly).
Cluster B personality types are socially competitive and tend to be ruthlessly self-obsessed and narcissistic in general as a human personality type.
Those who are prone to violent mood swings that happen rapidly tend to end up diagnosed with Borderline Personality Type while folks who are simply self-obsessed and wholly socially transactional people end up being suspected of having Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
But what they all have in common is a desire to find individuals who are above average when it comes to having a desire to please other people from a purely altruistic motive and to take social advantage of such people physically, financially, and socially for all they are profoundly objectified worth.
Run-ins with such people tend to leave their victims with a wide range of social anxiety at best and a host of physical emotional and psychological symptoms that may or may not be readily apparent to a trained advocate or person who has been an abuse victim themselves.
Medical providers and authority figures like police and school teachers take note — if you meet someone who has the following symptom list or personality affectations you can bet your last dollar that they are being profoundly psychologically and emotionally — if not physically and or sexually — abused by someone in a position to do them harm in public with mobbing assistance or in private when no one cares or no one is looking.
