Re: Newly Diagnosed
Thanks for the reply!
I've had a few diagnosis before/currently. I was diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood and I often observe my behavior and think, "yup, I have ADD." At first with ADHD it was hard to accept too. Partially because of the thought I get sometimes "there is something wrong with me."
Being told I have PTSD feels like adding another problem on the list. I know it's just a way of describing my issues, but it's overwhelming in part, I think, because of the stigma, but also because it ties everything together and brings the trauma to the front of my mind. Now I see a lot of ways I do it the PTSD diagnosis and its no fun to think about!! It sounds like a bigger problem than the previous anxiety, depression, ADHD, and REM sleep disorder I got comfortable with.
