hello steven. welcome to the forum.

to my just-a-patient understanding, that reaction might qualify as a clinical definition of ptsd.

gentle support while you find your way off the not-so-merry-go-round.
welcome aboard.

You are experiencing PTSD. Get into EMDR therapy. It is the gold standard for the symptoms. It's hard work,but you are worth help
