"constantly being told I'm not fit for work" as my husband says my PTSD is so bad no wonder no one is hiring me. I was diagnosed in 2008 via a lawyer in my child's custody case I ended up getting her away from our abuser after the local state (Missouri) sent my daughter away to our abuser (social worker later got fired). I've had to work, raise my daughter, and not get treatment because if I said anything to employers they didn't want to hire me. So I kept it in for 20 years. The PTSD is getting worse. I've tried medication that only puts me to sleep. I cannot get help from the unemployed office because my previous toxic work environment lied and keeps lying. I also have carpel tunnel making it harder to do even things around the house. I do not get income at all and we are living on my husband's commission work so the stress is extremely high everyday. So we can be at each others throats living 24/7. Both of us are trying to do the self-employment avenue. I have not gotten work at all since I opened my art biz in March. I was there when I worked full time for my husband for him to get his off the ground. I left because my husband said he could handle everything (he can't). I try to get online, work from home, gigs, or anything no one wants to hire me. The health care system just wants me on pills and I really don't want to sleep for the rest of my life or be in a prison in my own head. I am at a loss... There are no qualified health care providers near me that know how to deal with PTSD. We can't afford to move. I'm about to pull my hair our or go off on the deep end because every month we fight about the paying the bills when I bring them up or buying food. I'm frankly sick of it all.
