Well I never fought in a war either, but I have PTSD. For me it's from sexual/physical/emotional abuse as a child. Yep, that qualifies.
But in terms of getting an actual Dx, the best thing is to see your therapist, and perhaps even speak with one who specializes in trauma. That's what I did, and for me anyway, everything started to fall into place, and rather quickly too.
PTSD comes in many forms....and has many causes. If that is indeed what's going on, I'm living proof that there are great therapists out there to help you understand why/what and how....
