Hi all,

I've been chatting with a few others who have PTSD and we were thinking it would be nice to get together and chat once in a while. Is there anyone out there who is interested??? PTSD is so overlooked in the general population except for soldier returning from combat. But, many of us who suffer from PTSD due to other trauma need support. Post here if you 'd like to meet and we'll find a time.

 Yes the thought of a ptsd chat is good. There are many changes in the understanding of ptsd. Support is the best thing to have. The emotional shock can be very tough to deal with at times. Being here on line at hw has helped. But a more centered chat would help to learn ways to deal with ptsd. sad ty Chutz

I'm game as well. Not 100% certain of the dx but T strongly suspects this is the case due to a traumatic, abusive childhood. I'm a little hesitant in chat, don't do it often but I'm willing to give it a try.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.

I think this is a great idea...I dont have ptsd...but my mom does...she developed it after a very serious car accident...I took care of her for 7 years afterwards, and if there was one thing I learned about ptsd from that is the lack of support they are given!!!

I would definitely be interested.  Maybe the idea would be to start a Yahoo group as they are free to use and are email based, can choose the type of email format you want.  I have accute PTSD.  I'm in whatever you decide.

Hi all,

Wonderful idea. I think this is something that would benefit many (and it is one factor in my ex's condition). Is it possible that HW might set up a new forum for this? Mods might know if this is a possibility?

All best to you,

I will start a yahoo group if you all want to.  Just say the word and I will create it and if I am allowed to, post the link to the group here.

I have PSTD from an abusive childhood as well. The thing that sucks for me is the only time I get to get on the computer is at work from around 6a-8a before anyone else comes in, otherwise I'm in!

Oh my god! this is everything I've been thinking I need. No I wasn't in a war. I wasn't abused. I wasn't in a bad accident. I found my baby girl dead, in her crib, dead. She was healthy, beautiful, bossy & mine. Then she was cold, empty & gone. I see everything over & over again. I have images pop-up in my thoughts all the time. I remember screaming forever in the emergency room on the floor for 20-30 minutes alone with her when they were done. This replays in my head a couple times a week. Allison died a year ago this past September. Zoloft helped but didn't stop movies in my head. I wish the bad, horrible memories would just stop. I heard talking with people who have similiar problems help.

Let me know, Michellle
