I have had bad things happen in the past ( about 3 yrs ago) that I think most people would be able to get over like my ex hanging my over a 2nd story balcony, stealing my car, force himself on me, (playfully) pull a knife on me. I also had a cancer scare, got into a bad car accident, lost scholarship to college, and had to have my gallbladder removed / liver worked on. I was 19 or so. Now I feel like I still just cant handle life. I wouldnt say im depressed but I feel like I cant do it. I see images of that period in time (good or bad) and I start to cry. I feel like everything is piling up and I wont ever be able to get beyond my past... I have know idea if this is post traumatic stress or I'm going crazy or what. My doctor put me on klonopin and i tried to do weird things like I tried to jab a thumb tack in my hand at work cause I couldnt handle it. Is there any help? I dont know what to do, I worry all the time.

Re: questions

It sounds like you have had a lot to deal with and I'm sending you a big hug. I'm sure it must feel that the world is a big bad place, but please know that there are good people out there who will treat you with kindness if you let them.

Are you seeing a therapist? Have you spoken honestly with your family physician regarding the things that have happened to you? If you haven't received the kind of help you think you need, please go again to someone who will listen. Perhaps a course of an antidepressant will help you get back on your emotional feet and you can find your inner strength again.

My best wishes to you.

Re: questions

I could not get over bad boyfriend and psychologists didn't even let me talk as much as I wish but said that I had chemical unbalance, normal person like her would forget it right away, since man is out of my life. I did not want take medicine but keep bringing it up so she became very rude and unhappy with me and said that some people would get out when they saw stone ready to thrown on there head but I would just stay and all kind of other mean nusty stuff. I just quit her and afraid to try somebody else.
