Hi T2,

I have ptsd as well.

I have in recent months remembered thing I have suppressed since 5yrs......i am now 44.

I was recently hospitalized (psche) ,,,have uncovered many memories....but I am still there is something else to face.

I can not tell you how empowered I felt to vocalize my life long supressions. Do you feel like you can start talking a little? with me, at this stage, it came pouring out. Until now.........I have never been able to remember since I was around 13 yrs old. Now I am stalled at 5 and (you know the you are going to implode) I feel like there is something else I need to face.

all that to say - I am so there for you!

               The Courage to change the things I can, and
                     The Wisdom to know the difference........Just for Today.

Hi Twiggy, it is good to see you back again :-)I have PTSD also and have had it for a very long time.  Mine stems from childhood sexual and physical abuse.  I can tell you from my own experience with this that medication (antidepressants) has helped with the depression and anxiety as PTSD is tied into both of these but therapy is the key factor to helping with this one disorder.  Usually, when a person goes through something so traumatic it does leave lasting effects on the mind and it can creep up on us at unexpected in our dreams, or even when we aren’t even thinking of the event.  This is why dealing with it through therapy is important as it helps bring it to the forefront and hopefully you can resolve the issue to a point where you can live in peace with it.

I was just diagnosed with PTSD, and every day is a struggle. I am supposed to be starting a new therapy that involves something with eye movements, but I need to find a therapist that does it. My therapist recommended it to me to try to help with my situation. I hope you are able to find some relief to what you are going through. Keep us updated.
