I know that early childhood trauma and ptsd cause many illnesses, and many that I have are related. My ptsd symptoms have been getting better over the past couple years but my health problems have worsened. (fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, myofacial pain, disc and muscular pain, weakness, fatigue, gastro issues) I have become a bit more peaceful in my life through therapy and hard work, but wonder if it is coming out in physical symptoms. I am so exhausted all of the time. I use to have some seasonal affective stuff, but now summers are no better. I socialize some and find humor much more than I was able to in the past. I take things less serious. Sleep is still an issue and I have to take xanax to sleep. This makes me pretty unreliable. Its very frustrating to feel bad and exhausted most of the time.
