I too have recently been diagnosed with chronic PTSD. I am still earning about the problem, and am spending alot of time feeling very discouraged. I have been on meds for 3 months: Effexor XR and recently Risperdal, evidently for my psychosis. Although, the anxiety is not really getting any better, especially at PMS time, I am a total other person, and just want out of my skin. I also find that this is when I am most suicidal. Have any other women had this problem?

Also: The VA has planned on providing me military sexual trauma counseling because I was revictimized in the AF decades ago, but never mentioned it to anyone, as with the csa I endured.

I am concerned however, because the VA Drs. often mention that I should not talk about the csa so much, because my disability compensation could be denied. I am worried that I will not be treated correctly, that it is very important who did the abuse. I am certain the rape in the AF didn't help, but I am more concerned about being helped than being compensated for the rest of my life.

Any suggestions anyone?

Thank you so much for listening.
