Please do not feel sorry that you posted. I think that many people have learned a lot from your experiences and truly understand what you've been through. It's very common for words to be misconstrued, whether it's via E-mail, message boards, air mail letters, or even person-to-person speech. Misunderstandings happen all the time, and the main thing is that everyone gets to learn what is really meant, and that the misunderstanding gets resolved. I think I can speak for everyone on this board when I say that we wish you well and hope that you will continue to post whenever you feel the need. Unfortunately, there are negative elements in our society and loaded words in our language--words like "addiction" and "co-dependence", that are emotionally charged. The doctors and the media distort and misuse these words and so they get to be used like bullets for shooting people down. The area of benzodiazepines is highly controversial and that only adds to the problem.
So, again, it is my hope that you will continue to post and understand that no one here means any harm to you.
Personally, I am curious about your PTSD, how it happened (if you care to discuss it) and what medications were of help in any way. I do not suffer from this problem but I do know that millions of people in New York City have been traumatized by the events of 9/11 and need to be treated for PTSD as a result. I saw what the Vietnam War did to many soldiers who were lucky (?) enough to make it home and live their lives tormented by the visions of atrocities that occurred on the front lines. So long as the human race remains vulnerable to accidents, wars, bombings, violent deaths, and other traumas, we will have to deal with the after-effects. I believe that one of the most important things victims can do to ease their suffering is just to go on "venting" and talk about their feelings to sympathetic friends.
