Re: Hi There

Hi Jenni,

Yes, I am in treatment. PTSD was diagnosed last year, and after waiting for half a year I got hooked up with a therapist 6months ago. With the help of meds and sessions I have been able to at least get a better balance in my life somewhat. My therapist and I are going to work up to the point where I will be able to do EMDR with her.

My symptoms are flashbacks, rage, sleepdisorders (up for days to crash), nightmares (reliving really) panic, hightened alertness and depression when I get too exhausted of dealing with all the symptoms. So far the meds have helped in getting a kind of "normal" sleep pattern, I get like 5 hours a day now. This helps enough with the depression bit, and it has lifted somewhat already.

Thanks for replying. How are you?
