smilewinkgrin  So I got diagnosed today from my therapist as having post traumatic stress disorder. There were underlying issues i had that i did not deal with in my past that caused me to give me anxiety in situations and then a traumatic event happened two years ago that caused me to go into a depression for a year. I am on lexapro and lunesta to help me with my anxiety and lunesta to sleep. I am still unable to sleep on my own. I feel so relieved to know i am finally diagnosed after 6 months of therapy. I no longer am depressed. I was just wondering if anyone here has ptsd and if so how do you cope with it? I have some things on how i deal with the anxiety aspect of my ptsd. If you have anything to add please do. I would like to eliminate my anxiety to a point where i wont feel threatened or scaried in situations anymore.

I am glad you did post in A & P.  I know we have a fair amount of PTSD and I am so sorry you have to go through that.

Thinking of you

Hope your day is good.

Kitt
