I have improved a lot in this last year, I am definatley feeling less anxious and coping again, my trauma triggered off a lot of Physical symptoms and I am making great head way taking supplements not drugs and helping myself, building up my immune system, and of course coming to MH for help from others ,this has been my therapy ,being able to share and receive invaluable information.I did find for a while I was obsessing about things in the past I had no control over , read up about it, googled for information, lived on MH ...told myself to do less thinking..I do believe we let our thoughts cause us a lot of bother...so yes my answer is yes I think for some it takes a long time but I do feel you can get better..

There is definitely hope for PTSD sufferers.  There is life after PTSD also.  Hang in there.  It took me 25 years to heal enough inside to finally be ready to go through the therapy for PTSD.  I was also an alcoholic and ready to quit drinking.  I am very happy and sober today.  I still have PTSD and guess I always will but just feel like I do not have time for my flashbacks etc anymore.  I have much more control over my anxiety today that it is almost a non-issue. I sleep through the nights again.  My message is that things will get much much better in time.  Every person has their own time schedule so be patient with yourself. Get a therapist and a psychiatrist and they will also stick with you untill you are ready to go through PTSD treatment. Learn to be nice to yourself and know that you are worth the efforts you put forward and others give you.  Never give up on you.  You can do it my dear.  Wendy
