I was a mental health worker for 15yrs and got diagnosed with ptsd from my work couple years ago. I was told it's rare but it happens. I live in a small town far north and help is to say the least inadequate. Privacy is a huge issues. Feeling isolated, 18yrs relationship broke down few weeks ago, people dont believe I have ptsd cause I look so chill im told. To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction I say. Anyway, if anyone in the health care profession has ptsd, how are guys dealing with it, what is/was your experience like? Can't help to feel as a mental health worker that I should have it under control, because I understand what is going on, I teach people skills to deal with it, but yet it still creates havoc in my body. Frustrating.
