  • Can you get childhood PTSD, anxiety, or depression from neglectful, violent parents?

    I am a 22 year old female. I've always struggled with anxiety symptoms for as long as I can remember. I didn't know until a couple years ago that it was an actual disorder. My parents were drug addicts when I was younger. (They have since recovered). My siblings and I were neglected, and around a lot of violence. I was wondering if you can get childhood PTSD, anxiety, depression from that? Thank you so much in advanced.
  • do physical symptoms ever go away?

    Since a colon resection surgery 5 yr agos I have to be sedated because if not I have nausea,vomiting,tremors,cramps,the feeling of adrenaline constantly running around in my chest and arms. etc etc...doctors do not know what it is. They gave me numerous medications that only made things worse...now I am on SeroquelXR for what they say is ptsd. The side effects are horrendous..off the charts sugar,cholesterol,liver enzymes,20 lb weight gain. Anyone else out there have this experience after surgery?

  • Does anyone else fear being touched?

    I dislike being touched, even by my husband sometimes. I feel paralyzed and disgusted, as well as anxious. I don't like acquaintances to try to hug me, but worse there are certain parts of my body I feel repulsed when touched. It's impossible to control and hurts my relationship with my husband. Not sure if it's common to fear touch with PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
  • does anyone have a fear of it happening again?

    My ptsd comes from my grandpa dying. Alot of my anxiety is just in remembering how he suffered and changed. Some of my anxiety is just over the fact that it was disturbing, kind of like watching a disturbing movie scene and having it replay in your head. But part of it seems to be fearing that something similar will happen again. I'm confused as to whether this is ptsd or ocd, because I have that as well. However, I respond to specific everyday triggers with anxiety when I'm reminded of the past, vs ocd you respond because you are worried about the future, in general.
  • does anyone's ocd trigger their ptsd?

    I find that my ocd and ptsd are intertwined. I'm not sure what triggers what, but it seems that my ptsd triggers the ocd.
  • has anyone's ptsd been triggered by funerals or death of loved one?

    My counselor told me I may have ptsd,and it is likely as I have many symptoms. I developed it after my grandpa passed away from cancer. I've felt alone and embarrassed, because its hard to find people who are going through the same thing. I know there are people out there though. I'm scared to talk about it though for fear someone will make light of it or tell me I shouldn't feel this way.
  • How can I help others to understand what agoraphobia means?

    My inability to leave the house combined with depression and PTSD has made me an unreliable friend. I lost the few friends I had by dropping out with no explanation. No matter what I think I should say nothing seems adequate. I feel like I'm making excuses and 'sorry' isn't enough. I'm not sure how to help (ex) friends see my silence hasn't been from malice. I'm paralyzed by fear with the thought of explaining and being misunderstood. I'm not sure what to do. Every time I try to explain myself friends/family take the explanation as my being 'over' what ever was bothering me, thinking I can control it. I'm now in the position with the few friends of constantly apologizing for conditions they seem to take lightly, like I'm just a 'flake' and not suffering from illness. If my leg was broken or I had cancer no one would expect the constant apologies.
  • how can I talk to my mom about my PTSD without her hating my guts?

  • Sleeping anxiety attacks?

    I',m starting to have anxiety attacks as I sleep/wake up. I suffer from PTSD, GAD, and OCD... I honestly thought I was going to end up hurting myself when I woke up. I felt embarrassed and childish as though it was a temper tantrum. Now I can't go back to sleep... anyway, I was wondering, does anyone else suffer anxiety attacks while sleeping/just waking up?
