Rae Story, former sex worker, in a Dec. 8, 2016 guest post for mumsnet.com titled "I Didn't Think of My Prostitution as Traumatic but It Left Me with PTSD," wrote:

“It took me a long time to fully understand my symptoms; the irritability, the anger, the fear, the strange existential sense that life no longer had any purposeā€¦ Not all women in prostitution will suffer from PTSD, but many of us do; even in the most conservative findings, prostitutes are shown to be significantly more likely to suffer from PTSD than the general population. For us it is the site of our suffering and the cause of our enfeeblement. Only by confronting that, have I begun to heal.”
