Training with c-PTSD

I want to start MMA training. I'm currently getting treatment with a professional for c-PTSD caused by repeatedly being assaulted and exposed to physical violence.

I think learning to fight would be helpful for me, but going to a new training facility, with no experience, and jumping in with more experiences guys causes me a lot of anxiety and causes a lot of other symptoms that make it hard for me to progess and participate.

I think a lot of this could be avoided if I could let the instructor(s) know about my situation upfront. Watching instructors wonder what's up with me while I'm working my way through an episode while training makes things worse for me.

Is there a way to find instructors who are willing to handle situations like mine? Is it advisable to just find someplace and let the instructor know up front? It's a tough call for me, I don't want to make anyone immediately uncomfortable with me, but when I have attempted to train, let's just's not pretty to look at, so one way or the other, I'm going to get branded as a 'special' student.
