Ok, when I saw this section of the forum, one story came to mind. While I was working, in a maternity ward, this story came up because we didn't want it to happen to us. But...what got me was this women's diagnosis of PTSD. I felt that this gave negative publicity to PTSD. Some news articles say PTSD, and others say PTSS (sydrome instead of disorder). At the time, only a year after my PTSD started, I felt humiliated. I had told my co workers about my diagnosis. Most of them didn't even know what it was. Then the second time they heard it, it was in this article. Some even asked me about it.....what can I say? I was really embarassed. What do you guys think?
