Arrow Could I have PTSD?

My other mom says she thinks I have PTSD because half the time I cannot recall things that happened as a child/teenager. I sometimes do the blank stare thing and when people ask me what I am thinking about I just say, "I do not know" because I don't know what I was thinking about. But they don't beleive me because I have this very strange deep look on my face.

I also have an issue where if I get into a fight or heated argument I don't remember what happens at all, just bits and peices and if I get violent I don't remember it at all or even why I got into the fight in the first place.

I can't even remember what music I listened to in Jr. High/HS. I scored high on my SAT's but I can't recall any of that stuff I was tested on, anything I learned in H.S.

I am not sure what it all means but could it be PTSD or what else could it be.

Re: Could I have PTSD?

This is just a guess based on what I've learned, but I thought PTSD was a
emotional repsonse to a trauma that occured in our life. I suppose it's
possible you have blocked it. I believe part of my bipolar illness is emotional
stress from childhood trauma. I also dont remember much of my childhood
except for some of the trauma's. Being your Mom feels it's PTSD related have
you ever asked her if you faced some traumatic situation that you cant remember.
Good Luck, Rani
