    My name is Linda, and I am a recovering alcoholic, 16 years sober and now facing my PTSD issues. Was in US Army 1969 thru 1985 in medical field. Dealt with returing wounded from Vietman and a variety of medical trauma at a major army training post. Major PTSD problems from these incidences. Currently taking 400mg Trazodone and Ambien at bedtime which gives me 2-3 hours of sleep. Also on Zoloft, 200mg in am. Two ex- husbands who were Nam vets, both with severe alcohol and PTSD issues. Glad to find this forum, already have gained strength and knowledge from you all.
    Thanks!
