Finding Peace After Involuntary Hospitalization

Hey everyone, I’m a 19-year-old guy and I’ve been dealing with PTSD after being involuntarily hospitalized. It’s been really tough to process what happened and I’ve been struggling with anxiety and nightmares. I’m trying to find ways to cope and move forward, but it’s definitely a challenge. I want to reach out and connect with others who may have been through something similar. It would mean a lot to hear about your experiences and any advice or coping strategies you’ve found helpful. I’m really looking for support and understanding as I navigate this difficult journey.
