I was wondering how long the anxiety with ptsd usually lasts...I've been trying to find information on the net and in books but there's not much info. I've had it for nearly 7 months now and sometimes it'll go away completely one month but return full force the next for no apparent reason. It seems to go hand in hand with my depression. Just when I think I've finally gotten over everything, I'll start to have flashbacks and super bad anxiety.

My life is basically a mess these days. I can't sleep, i'm always on edge, super paranoid. I'm starting to wonder if it'll ever end. I went to see a therapist but $1,400 dollars later, that's not an option anymore. I guess I would just like to talk to others who are going through the same thing because I sure feel like I'm the only one. Does the anxiety ever go away?

Re: Anxiety

I'm almost afraid to repond to your post 'cause I don't have an answer. It's different for everyone, but you're definately not alone. Are you on any meds? Sometimes that can help. I take zoloft and also have klonopin as needed. Exercise, breathing exercises, relaxation tapes and talking help. I'm also in therapy. I have no idea how much I've spent. It's been a lot though. Luckily, I have good insurance. But, it's still $15 copay which adds up after a long time period; not to mention gas and a babysitter. But, it has saved my life.
