    Hi,

    I'm nieccole from Illinois. I was recently diagnosed with PTSD and came here hoping to find support, information, and others that understand. My PTSD is multi-faceted stemming from a singular traumatic event, and "extended exposure to extreme trauma." I also am dealing with depression, anxiety, and OCD stemming from the PTSD. I am 27 years old, married, female, and a middle school teacher. I am doing my best to try to work through things to become a healthier person.

    Thanks for taking the time to read,
    nieccole

    A little more about me. I am currently seeing a psychologist twice a week and a psychiatrist once a month. I take Effexor in the mornings and Seroquel at night. I also have a prescription for Ambien and Xanax, but those are for only as needed. I have only taken the Ambien once, and the Xanax three times in the three weeks that I have had them. I have been drug, alcohol, and cigarette free for 8 years, 6 months, and 16 days. I have been in therapy now since March. It took me 7 months after I got the psychologist's name to get up the nerve to call him. Although it is really hard, I am glad that I made the call.

    Hi Nieccole!

    I am a teacher, too, though I teach elementary kids. Sometimes teaching really stresses me out--there can be too much stimulation!--but it's also the biggest thing getting me through each day. Welcome to the forum, it's a wonderful place to help us feel not alone.
