feelings of worthlessness is common with PTSD, i'm happy that you have hope it is a beautiful thing to have. try to make a list of your triggers: identify what sets you off, meaning what triggers your symptoms to emerge and try to develop a plan to channel your intense fear & anxiety please believe that you are not alone many people suffer from PTSD for many differrent reasons my triggers are helicopters wire fences, heavy smoke and chemical cleaning agents i hope this helps ok :)
