Does anyone have trouble telling your families about your spouses problems? I have only 1 brother and his family...Our parents are dead. My brother is very hearty he went through Viet Nam apparently with no after effects. He absolutley can not relate to my husband's problems...so I just cover it up. We all live far apart so they don't see anything.But I could sure use some of their support. My husband was hurt on 9/11 and was diagnosed with PTSD a few months later. It's been a roller coaster of anxiety, insomnia, panic and paranoia for five years. I've only lately begun to realize that our old life is over and that this thing will not pass . I lost the happy surfer, sailor, adventurer I loved and this new person is what I have. Sweet, scared and very dependent on me. But I haven't really told my family yet...Did any of you?
