Unhappy Ptsd....

Hello,
I know I posted a few posts but i was wondering if anybody else on here suffers from PTSD and can share their stories.
I currently was diagnosed w/ PTSD from 1 DR and 2 Psychologists. I do believe I have it because I feel detached from my family...I also have memory problems and feel dizzy all the time. I just want to stay in bed. I feel like I lost my sense of fun and imagination. I just feel stressed out. I feel like a zombie most days and in just 108 days I will be flying "home" again to enjoy a week filled of "fun" at Disney world." but at this time in my life i just feel like I will feel like a zombie...like I do now.

I just have soo many questions that i don't think have answers such as

1.) how do you transition into adult? how do you separate from your parents and be on your own?

(i don't have any friends so I'm alone in this world other then my family).
I just feel like my fun days are over. i'm 24 and don't think i'll have any fun.
i think about death. like why are we here when god just takes us in the end any way? why should you enjoy life when you are just going to be taken away from it in the end?

I have a new psychologist now (if anybody was reading my other posts). Hopefully she'll be better then my last.

Does anybody have any stories of PTSD that they can share w/ me? Like what your symptoms are/were and how you got help? If you don't want to share w/ the whole world (or at least all the Disney fans) you can pm me... I am a great listener and keep things private that people tell me.

I just feel like I'm alone... In reality I'm not but mentally I just feel alone.

I am sorry things are so tough for you at the moment and I am glad that you have found a new psychologist that you think will be better suited to your needs.

Sometimes the transition to adulthood can be difficult but please keep in mind that at various times in our lives we all need a little extra support.
I guess when we are feeling a little down we can feel isolated and alone even though we are surrounded by people.

I do hope that things improve for you soon and that you can find the things in life that will give you happiness and peace.
Personally, I have no experience with PTSD but if you ever feel like a chat send me a PM.

I don't have PTSD, but my 7 year old adopted daughter does and it has an awful affect on her life and the lives of those who love her. Here is not the place to discuss why she has PTSD, but her symptoms are, nightmares, inability to concentrate, irritability, fidgeting, vomiting, feeling unloved and unworthy of love and pre-occupation with the events that caused her PTSD.

My daughter has literally fallen apart over the past year. It has been so hard to watch and she is just now starting to come through the other side. She has been having weekly appointments with a child consultant psychologist.

I don't know anything about your situation, but I know how devastating PTSD is for young people who suffer from it.

My only advice here is know that you are a valuable person in your own right and that the thoughts and feelings you have can get better with help. I tell my daughter every day that the things that happened to her will always be there, they will never go away, but in time and with help from her Dr. they won't bother her anymore.

Feeling like you don't want to do anything or deal with life is normal with PTSD, but each day, force yourself to do something you don't feel like doing. Perhaps take a walk, tell yourself that for those 20 minutes, you are going to walk and clear your head and give that time to yourself.

I am so sad to hear that your precious daughter has PTSD and just wanted to send your family a big
As an adoptee and an adoptive mum I know the difference a loving home can make in the life of a child, wishing you all the best for the future.

We adopted our daughters 4 years ago. We have worked very hard to help them overcome their difficulties and get them the support they both need for their individual special needs. The little one has PTSD because of the older one which has made things much more difficult but I'm sure the future will be much brighter for us all.
