Re: Do I have PTSD?
Wow, you poor thing, you have been through so much! I would say you definately have PTSD from all that (I sure would). I'm very sorry for all your losses, your brother, friends, and best friend. How tragic! My condolences. I lost my mom, best friend and another good friend, that alone almost drove me over the edge. I'm so sad we live in such a cruel world. I cant believe someone chased you with a machete and all the guns pointed at you and all you have witnessed. You must have horrible night terrors. I''m so glad you escaped all that. To witness people being shot...I'm so sorry you had to endure all that. I would probably never leave home again. The trauma is unbelievable. I hope you can see a therapist or have someone you can talk to about this. One of my friends came to work and said he got robbed at gunpoint and just laughed about it. I couldnt believe it, he just said he's used to it...I'm sure he must have been hiding something, how can u get used to that? I'm glad you are not like that anymore. I wish you the best. *hugs*
