Hi! Iam going threw some really econamical times! Who isn't rite? Well here's the real question as of yesterday I was going to receive my wages from being laid off.. long story short I was just out of the blue! Got cut from unemployment becouse my previous employer reported me as volunteerly quite my job but the real reason was becouse they sold the company!!! Ok I got cut of with a remaining balance and they owed me $800 yesterday was the day I got cut off and rent was do as well! So I just grabbed my stuff from the room I was renting!! And went to a family members house! I had previously told him my secret becouse his a good cuzin trustworthy and good opinions of things but when I told him about the abuse he made a face at the time I told him... ok so iam at his place for a quick week until this unemployment curse! Gets sorted out... The problem FOR ME is my cousin has two young daughters 3 and 5 I get really nervous all this weird feelings all over my body! And I feel as iam I am a perp! WHY"? Do I get this feelings I realized lastnite that I get weird around kids now!! And iam hating this feeling becouse my cousin and his wife probably thinking that I mite ttry to touch my nieces!! And believe me I don't think of anything its an anxiety why????????

You have complex PTSD from abuse as a lil kid and you are having anxiety attacks / panic attacks.

"Children are powerful triggers," a shrink once told me. We had just sent our 3-y.o. son to a half-day preschool for the first time. I'm not surprised you feel anxious around kids. It's not a good feeling, but it's "normal" for folks like us.

I too am very anxious around kids, it's a shame, I used to be really good with kids, now I can't even be around them without feeling weird or bad or strange, I hate it.

I think a lot of therapists don't really understand that it is PTSD

You are not alone on this one here is a link to my own post on the matter:

Anxiety Around Kids

My own anxiety has subsided somewhat over time. In fact, I was at lunch with my brother and his wife's 4 year old nephew and was only slightly triggered despite the fact that I was this age when my abuse began.

Pufferfish!!! You make sense about being post traumatic stress!!! Becouse that wasn't the only abuse I suffered I was beaten!!! Severly since even the abuse happened!!! For 14yrs! So that could be part of the ptsd thanks for opening a door for my healing! And all other post thanks as well...

EXACTLY the same man.

I've got much better over time, the anxiety meds I'm on really help.
