Hello, my name is Rachael and I am a college student. I have been experiencing very bad health since the begining of January this year. Prior to my many symptoms I found out that my younger brother attempted suicide and was hospitalized for a few weeks. When I found out about this I was extremely shocked and did not really talk to anyone about it. Since that happened I have been chronically ill with tension headaches, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, stomach upset, and the list goes on. I did not relate any of my symptoms to this experience, rather I have been from doctor to doctor being treated for thyroid dysfunction with medication that has only made me worse. Today I went back to the doctor again and he straight forward told me that he did not think there was anything physically wrong with me, rather I should see psychiatric help. He asked me if there had been a traumatic experience and I pretty much broke down telling him everything. Since January I unfortunately have found out that my parents are divorcing which has not helped my well-being. I was curious if my story sounds similar to PTSD or if maybe someone has another suggestion for me? I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.
