    PTSD Medication

    I was finally able to get back online tonight to check on things and I read that part about not trusting Pharmaceutical drugs that Anthony wrote. I personally do not trust them either. They make you feel ok for awhile and then they have to keep uping the dosage to get the same effect. This...

    Young and Angry - Why So Angry?

    Hi Young and Angry, I understand your frustration. Sometimes just saying things rather than waiting for just the right words will work. It will help you to get everything out of you. I too sometimes want to think things through before I say them but then I analyze things to much and not...

    Childhood PTSD or Trauma Effects - Growing Up

    I hear ya piglet. My husband went to one session with the pshychiatrist and he would not go back because they did not specifically say he needed help.

    9/11 Pentagon

    Any other drugs to worry about. I truly believe Paxil is one to worry about and I watched a documentary on this drug and how in Europe they band it because of the negative effects it was having on people. For me, I was at the maximum dosage and was getting more suicidal which I have learned...

    9/11 Pentagon

    Terry exercise works for me to. I have been walking everyday at work on my lunch hour. I take my cambell's microwavable soup with me and do a 20 minute walk. I also try to go for a walk in the evening if I feel up to it when I get home from work. It was something I stopped doing when the...

    9/11 Pentagon

    Here here Anthony. It does get worse before it gets better. I am currently at a group called EA. We do a 12 step program. You work on one thing a week. Sometimes you can end up doing a step many time before you can get past that area. I have been off my meds since about Nov and I have had...

    9/11 Pentagon

    Terry, I cannot even imagine what that must have been like for you. I was not offended by what you had to say in anyway. Venting is a good thing to do. It will help you to recover. I wish I could give you the answers to make everything better but I can't. What I am learning is that I cannot...

    New Here - PTSD from Childhood

    He came over to pick up somethings. I wanted to talk to him about a lot of things. I still love my husband. I know for most this is hard to understand as he had an affair and is living with this woman because I kicked him out. He and I are not at a place right now where we can talk to one...

    Is PTSD a Disability?

    PTSD is a disability according to the doctors here in Canada but the government does not thinks so. I had to go back to work even though the doctors do not believe I should be working or ever again should be working as the finances could not be covered by my husband work. Going back to work...
