I can relate to alot of what you are saying, I have had to deal with alot of things from the past, flashbacks put me in a bad mood and a bad place that I feel like I have too to some time and at times I have come really close to it ( not getting into it) but I have to stop and think about what I and you have gone through but not the same, and just STOP and think it is over and will never happen again and be strong about it as it is in the past and you can not change that but you need to look forward, but when it dose hit you call a friend and just talk with them about it and it to will pass.
I agree PTSD can be caused from being in a abusive relationship. Have you tried the CBT therapy? If not let me know and I will post info here for you.

Hi Kitt, please post the CBT info.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations,and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
