I was dx'd with bipolar nos for almost a decade; stabilizers never helped.

My pdoc of 2.5 years agreed with the dx of c-ptsd. I brought in some articles. I also had asked him previously why he no longer tried mood stabilizers. "Because I don't believe your bipolar," he said.
I recently found an article by Pete Walker MA, MFT that discusses c-ptsd developing through totalitarian run families and emotional neglect. That was the validation I was looking for, in that I would (will?) constantly berate myself for
being 'this sick' when nothing 'that bad' had happened.

The article is very Googleable by his name. (I don't know how to attach one on my phone.)

I wanted to thank everyone for responding and for the reading suggested. And mention that if I didn't care for something (like how I mentioned being triggered by Waking the Tiger), my comments were not criticism--I still appreciated the suggestion.

Out of all the books mentioned, I've read Herman's almost cover to cover. It is very good; however, everyone in it were victims of catastrophic events or such physical violence and abuse, again, I felt ashamed that I fit the description. My unendurables are very mild in comparison. I guess, however, they were enough for me.
