What's PTSD?

Trauma. Something awful happened - maybe once, maybe often. You were traumatized. Trauma doesn't go away by itself - either it gets treated immediately or it stays and wrecks your life. PTSD is trauma that wasn't treated immediately. Some people don't even know they've got PTSD until their life falls apart.

PTSD Symptoms



What Should I Do?

Get help, now! It can be hard to make the calls and visit the doctors and therapists. Sometimes it almost seems like you need to be healthy to have the energy and money to get the help that sick people need. Do it anyway! You can - and must - get help!

What Is PTSD



When will I be better?

It's hard to say. Do you mean all better? It can be two steps forward and one back. There will be discouraging times. But you can heal. Don't give up! PTSD isn't like a broken arm, where the docs can say exactly when you'll be better. Recovery is a process.

OK, when will life become Tolerable?

When the proper medication kicks in (you might have to try 1 or 2 first) and when you've begun to sort things out with a therapist. Stick with it - it's worth it!

When will my life get back to normal?

I wish with all my heart that there could be a way to make things as if nothing had ever happened. But you have to create a new "normal." Not the same, a different life from what you had. You can build a life that you enjoy. Please try!

You Need Two Kinds of Help

A doctor and a therapist - What's the difference? Funny you should ask! I had an e-mail about that - have a look here.
