Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Posted by starlight on May 24, 2004, at 12:08:33

Hi All,
Have you been diagnosed with PTSD? I think I've had this for a long time, but no therapist has ever dealt with it. I find myself in the grips of fear thinking that something horrible is just on the edge of happening. And I hate it. Like I'm driving down the road and I'm gripped with fear that I'm going to run into the concrete median barrier (which is stupid, I'm a perfectly fine driver). Or being gripped with fear that my husband is going to leave me, etc., etc.

It seems like I tend to think that the worst is going to happen or that something negative is imminent. It's kind of like an anxiety attack. If you struggle with this - has a medication helped you? Is this a similar discription to what you experience? I wish I didn't feel this way, it sucks. I think the pattern was set up in my early childhood due to abuse, but I can't figure out how to break it and it seems to get worse.
