I have Complex-PTSD. I've been in recovery for 2 years and don't do any drugs. I smoke weed/drink on occasion, but I never do anything else. I'm currently seeing an art therapist and she's great, but I keep hearing about Ecstasy and PTSD.
Does anyone know more about this? Is this just the "Essential Oils" bullshit of the drug community? Do you know anyone who has benefited?

My life is fucking hell man. I've been homeless 3 times in the past 2 years. Everyday is a nightmare. Every day I grab a knife to defend myself when I'm home alone. It sucks. I'm just looking for ANYTHING that can help. Not looking to mask the pain but to overcome it or learn from it you know?

Good, because it won't just make the pain go away chemically or whatever.
The point of MDMA therapy is that it lets you talk about things uninhibitedly without feeling any of the pain or fear you'd otherwise associate with them. So you need to do it in a therapeutic context - you need someone there with you who you trust and is able to deal with hearing all the stuff you're unloading onto them. With that in mind it might help if they're on a little bit themselves but not too much else they'll get distracted and carried away with talking too, and be unable to help you stay on topic. Ideally, that person would be a sober therapist doing therapist stuff, the MDMA just helps you be unhindered.
Luckily, MDMA's a pretty kindly drug so even without ideal circumstances you're unlikely to do yourself any harm even if you don't fix anything.

Have you tried talking to your actual therapist about it?
