    Hi all,

    I just discovered this forum after reading a Wikipedia article on PTSD. I was first told I had it about a year ago and kind of shrugged it off at the time. I was surprised after reading the article as to how the symptoms matched mine so well. I had no idea. I feel pretty good about my condition being so well documented and feel there's hope for me for a better future now. I recently went to a psychiatrist because I felt I was suffering from depression, I was told depression and PTSD and prescribed medication. I don't know that the medication is doing it for me but I'm starting psychotherapy as well; we'll see how that goes. Anyways, thanks to all of you who read this and God bless,

    Dave

    :hello: Welcome Dave,

    Hope being here helps.. :walking: I am the spouse of a PTSD sufferer and we both log on and read, listen, learn, talk, & then we talk about things we have learned here. I learned about triggers. I suffer depression. I'm on meds. :pills: My husband is on meds, for the moment they seem to be helping. I understand it's a long road to travel, so be patient.

    Take care,

    D (wildcritter)
