    I'm still real new and nervous but a friend suggested I try to get some online support. My husband was hurt at the WTC when the first tower collapsed. He is still gentle and sweet but he has gone from being a little quirky to really eccentric. He is reclusive and nervous and obsessed..It's hard- OF course you all know that...Anyway Like I said I'm new and just wanted to "break the ice"

    Welcome Jaynea. I'm glad you've found us. I am a ptsd'er and not a spouse, but I do know that we have a wonderful group here. I encourage you to see if your spouse will come online here and just check us out. Read a few threads and see how he feels.

    Once again, welcome. I look forward to your posts...:smile:

    Hi Jaynea, glad you found us. Jaynea, the spouse support here is growing immensely, and now contains a very good support base for spouses. It is just as hard for spouses as it is for the sufferer, sometimes harder. People ignore the spouse too often, where the spouses are a direct reflection upon the sufferer, and also must look after themselves at the same time, independently from the sufferer, or else the spouse ends up with huge issues also.

    Glad you found us, and look forward to chatting more with you.

    Thanks so much for the welcome. I'm still reading everyone's post to get a feel of the boards...Like I said I'm new to this. We just passed the anniversary of 9/11 and my husband had a very rough time...Hyper anxiety, no sleep strange behavior (he shook talcum powder all over the bathroom to simulate what happened to him.) He is retired/disabled now and sits home waiting for me......I wish I could find him an interest. He has been "shopping" for a car for four years now...Oh well. Thanks for listening.
