Default Re: Problems pinning it down

After I was physically abused, I didn't really remember any of it and I thought I was OK. But about 4 months later I started having flashbacks and I had weeks of extreme anxiety and panic... to the point that I had to be hospitalized again. I was diagnosed with PTSD, as well as generalized anxiety disorder. In threapy, I met a few soldiers that had been wounded in Afghanistan. They told me they had the same experience. You can be fine and feel normal for a while, then it comes back suddenly and can last for weeks. One of the guys told me that he had talked to Vietnam and WW2 Vets and they said the same thing about it coming and going. So I don't think its abnormal at all, and I understand what you're saying. I'd still recommend getting evaluated. Yours may just turn out to be chemical and meds may help.
