Officially diagnosed with PTSD.

Well, saw the Psych yesterday for the first time and he diagnosed me with PTSD. I'm taking 10mg of Prozac and he would like me to increase it, but said it was okay if I didn't if feeling okay with what I'm taking. He wrote me another RX on Xanax just incase while I continue therapy and hit some rough moments, I might just need a bit more, LOL

My body is taking sometime to desensitize, I was so nervous with trembles and the works, but I am beginning to feel better thanks to therapy and the books I'm reading. My brother died in February, I was very shocked and traumatized by his death, but my past represents PTS. Now my brother is gone and he had PTSD from VietNam and now I have it and have never gone to war. LOL He's probably laughing at me from heaven.

Re: Officially diagnosed with PTSD.

Chris, what is hydrocortisone? And for what would I be using this for?
