    Shock With PostTraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

    Kay Dee Lizagirrl: Hi, I'm Kay. I was moved by what you said. Simply because I in a sense move through my days feeling "locked in my world." I have "my world", and then there's "the world." I isolate quite a bit. But even when I'm around others, I'm in my own world. And getting too...

    PTSD And EMDR

    Kay Dee Hi Anthony! Good to hear from you again. Definitely anything new is stressful, let alone moving a long ways and trying to adapt to new people, things, everything! Is your follow-up like an all day session? Maybe it will help with all of the stress you have had. Let me know how it...

    How's Your Xmas Cheer? PTSD and Christmas

    Kay Dee Anthony and Camry I am an expert at being a grinch at Christmas time. I hate the part of sitting around talking about how wonderful the tree looks. And oh, the kids are having so much fun. And such good food too. Everyone puts on the "happy face" Christmas Eve and everyone is...

    How the surrounding mood makes your mood

    Kay Dee Anthony/Camry: I agree with Camry - - - on a daily basis. Especially at home. My mother tends to be a very pessimistic and negative/critical person. And like Camry, I can't wait until late evening after everyone goes to bed so that it's quiet, and I can become c-a-l-m. I have for...

    New To This Chat - PTSD From Family Death

    Molly: I can truly relate to your and Anthony's anxiety/panic symptoms. When I have an anxiety or panic attack, I very much feel like I'm about to go crazy any second. And I'm afraid if I go crazy, I'll never come back. My counselor has stated this is a very normal reaction/feeling to...
