Sorry...I can't remember if you are working specifically with your P-doc or therapist for PTSD?
If not, can I recommend looking into getting help for this? Your trauma definitely puts you at risk for this issue...and your symptoms support the probability of it.
If you need any more info on finding help, let me know. There are some sites that can assist in getting started looking for help.
On Monday, I'm going to the doc to inquire about
being tested for PTSD. Right now I'm only diagnosed with Major Depressive and anxiety. I want the PTSD diagnosis in part so I can get my medical marijuana card, as Michigan recognizes PTSD as a valid debilitating medical condition because it helps with depression and anxiety, but not depression or anxiety by themselves or together!
So that's what I'm doing right now. I just got back from the library, as I did an hour and a half study session for my psych class. It's like the Insanity workout, only for your mind: you can get through it if you really want to, but it's going to be absolutely grueling in the process.
