My history in a nutshell... Plenty of verbal, physical and psychological abuse at the hands of my whole family, a few major accidents and in alot of physical pain as a result. I was diagnosed with PTSD by my shrink and other doctors seem to think I not only have that. What I have a hard time with is the severe reactions to a stressful event, the frequent rage that at times is intolerable , the flashbacks and the lack of dreams or should I say the inability to remember them, as well as the psychological numbing. I wonder if I will ever be able to stop the meds and get over my extreme anger towards my family and the world. Do I sound like I am ranting...well I need to know if it gets easier. The doc says externalizing in therapy, meds and exercise are part of the answer.
