CE, there is a recent thread on meds board about social anxiety (I think that's the title). Anyways, hyperfocus supplied at least one link on ptsd and bullying.
The entire thread was interesting to me, and the link discussed bullying in a wider context at times, like being a social outcast.
Being or feeling like an outcast is painful. You may or may not meet the criteria for ptsd, but you can certainly be sensitive to those feelings and have issues with them w/o having ptsd. I hope you don't have ptsd--it's a bear. If you do, I know you can deal. But don't let a dx stop you from taking your very real, very uncomfortable experience to therapy. Maybe you can carry less of that small town stuff with you as you move forward. That would be good, yes?
You've got sooo much going for you. I'm behind you and others are here, too.
