The trauma then takes on a life of its own and, through its continued effects, haunts the survivor and prevents normal life from continuing until the person gets help. S...
many doctors like yours do prescribe pill therapy for PTSD but that is not enough to heal from it. Has your doctor also mentioned a qualified counselor or therapist for you to see?

He had no choice of nursing home coming off the street, but the first facility that had a bed open was given to him and he has been th...
I too have PTSD since childhood and it never totally goes away, when we use recovery tools given to us in therapy, the symptoms are managed, but as stress rises and we forget to use our tools, many symptoms sneak back in our lives....You need to tell your therapist what is going on and the 2 of you can discuss either new tools to use or upgrading or increasin...
