If you could save one life today would you?

I am a 56 years old aneuresym survivor,you would never know by looking at me,but trying to find the right help for all the struggles it brings and with no friends or family to help just my little dog Mazy .. I have tried desperately for 10 years to get answers . I was a nurse and am shocked at how no oones knows or cares about the post traumatic stress that follows..It really is the invisible disability..thank you

  • Yes,
    But I am not sure what your question has to do with the remainder of your post.

    PTS can occur after any stressful event.

  • Are you getting help from a mental health professional? If not, you should look into it. It sounds like you are depressed.

    But to answer your question, if I was put in that position to help save someone, I would do whatever I could to try & do so.

  • Are you feeling like you might harm yourself? Of course if I could save someone I would, I am so sorry about all of your troubles, and I think you need to keep searching for help, is there no support groups for this?

  • I'm sorry for the medical issues you have been dealing with. So many people have "invisible" diseases that they don't even know about. There are tones of autoimmune diseases that cause so many problems for people and there really aren't any answers or treatments available for many people. Try to remember your not alone, and don't stop trying to seek help.

  • It sounds like you've been through a lot. I'm sorry you're feeling so low. Please keep on trying to find help. I'm glad you have your dog for companionship.
