Thank you very much for the welcome! I was honestly afraid to come back to check. Not that I was afraid that there wouldn't be supportive replies, just afraid to come back. I see my new psychiatrist tomorrow. That brings on a whole new set of feelings. Lynn my PTSD presented itself much like yours. Lately it's just been day to day. The nightmares are horrific again and I'm so jumpy. I'm afraid to be home alone.
Hello, I'm starting to slowly reach out for some support. I begin with a psychiatrist next week. I'm 30 married with 3 children and burying and trying to hide this pain for so long it's taken over my life. What we thought were seizures turned out to be caused from a symptom of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that mimics seizures. While I'm very happy to not have been labeled with epilepsy...I have opened up the door I sealed shut. Never having dealt with anything has made things worse and I just need support. I have a great support system at home, but am not ready to join one IRL. Thank
