PTSD. In the beginning I didn't understand why I wasn't. In fact, friends of mine couldn't understand why either. Several years later it happens and I'm almost dumbfounded. I mean I sort of get it, I guess. Now the research begins.

Do you believe that diagnosis fits?  What you think matters too.

I have it, too. I think I realized this before being diagnosed with it. It makes sense, because I was abused for eight years as a child and used to have flashbacks/have suffered from depression and anxiety. Are you in therapy? I recently started seeing a new therapist who specializes in past trauma issues...

I do. What I didn't understand was why I hadn't been diagnosed years ago. No one ever really asked those questions but they knew about the situations that would cause it. After speaking with this therapist about what she specializes in, what I want and need, I think I've found my match. I've been looking since February for someone who can help me where I need it. I feel good about her.

That's great you were finally given the right diagnosis. I'm sorry knowing that it took so long, but better late than never. It's wonderful that you got a therapist who specializes with this, who can really help you. That's something to be hopeful about. I'm happy for you! hugs
