Newly diagnosed PTSD

I am not sure where to begin really...After years of feeling miserable I started seeing a therapist. The first one turned out not to be right for me (I had no trust with her). I stopped seeing her and went to someone who specializes in trauma and something called EMDR. My new therapist diagnosed me with c-ptsd which I guess is a lot worse then PTSD. I tend to suppress my emotions, avoid anything and everything that reminds me of my past, total failure at relationships and am generally disconnected (which I guess earned me that diagnosis). I am wondering if PTSD can be treated without medication? Also, is EMDR something worth exploring? I have had some traumatic childhood experiences (terrified of doctors, abusive grandparent etc....).

Sometimes I wonder if this is just something I have to live with....
