    Want to hide under the duvet

    Hi all. I have just won a case against the company I worked for, after two and a half years of fighting. I am now luckily quite comfortably off, life should be good, happy family, country cottage ........ but I wake up every morning with a feeling of apprehension, anxiety and the desire to just stay in bed. I have no energy, take no pleasure in anything, and find it hard to get on with life. If I told anyone this, they would think I was ungrateful and spoiled. I am most certainly not, I really do want to enjoy life, but I can't. Could this be PTSD?

    Nannoo, congratulations on your win. I would like to be able to help you with he PTSD but I believe it is something that requires a professional to make the final connection and shift through what is often large amounts of information to be able to provide an informed diagnosis. I say that as I have been working with my therapist for over two years and he has my backstory almost in its entirety (there are somethings I am still struggling with my self to acknowledge and deal with) He has made the diagnosis of PTSD which I still struggle with accepting due to my own preconceived ideas of what that means or does to a person.

    My advice is that if you believe you have PTSD, or actually based on just what you are telling us I feel you could benefit from speaking with a professional that may be able to help you with this transitional period of your life. In doing this work with the professional a diagnosis one way or the other of PTSD can be made and a treatment plan can be developed if necessary. One thing you might want to consider is finding a professional therapist that has experience treating PTSD that way they are familiar with the disorder and can help you move forward either way.
