I have PTSD. As a child, I used to get beaten by my mother until I was afraid for my life. My name now is an attempt to break from the person I was then, as well as avoid my mother and other family members. When Facebook said the name I’m now known to the majority of people I know as wasn’t authentic, I refused to re-activate my account under my old name, which cut me off from a lot of my friends/support.
