My girlfriend was abused as a child and is seeing a councellor, the councellor has said that she is suffering from PTSD, this manifests itself in "biological episodes" whereby she withdraws from herself and is unable to feel any emotion whatsover. She often invites me to come over but then asks me to leave shortly afterwards saying that she needs to be alone
She has said that she doesn't feel like she can ever be in a relationship as she cannot feel the "normal" relationship emotions. We communicate well and I make sure that she has space when she needs it, I really do care for her very much and want her to realise just how amazing she is ( she says that she does not know why I would want to be with her )
I want to help and support her but I want to make sure that I am doing this is the right way and not making inadvertant mistakes that might make her feel worse.
Any advice would be gratefully received
