Re: Need A Little Help Getting Over Past Trauma
I don't really know of any "self-help" books. Someone gave me a book called "When Bad Things Happen to Good People". It's written by Harold S. Kushner. He's a rabbi and the book is a bit on the religious side but it does help to gain some understanding of why things happen. I'm sure if you searched Barnes and Noble, or Amazon you could find a better book.
What you described in your post definetley sounds like PTSD and sounds like you are depressed. I'm not sure why you don't want to see a doctor about this, but I know for me, when I try to handle things on my own, they only get worse. I hope that you are feeling better soon! ~Bunny
