    Hey y'all

    Hello. I've tried forums before with little luck. It's probably because I am completely not capable of following through with anything. I've been trying to function with mental illness for as long as I can remember. I won't go too deep into my story, I don't think anyone has time for that...

    It recently dawned on me that IMO I have PTSD

    I saw my GP today, he is referring me to a specialist to get a diagnosis; I can't go in to why I think I've got it because it would take too long & I have very little energy & am always tired (I've already been diagnosed with aspergers & anxiety & I've been on anti-depressants for 27 years ie...

    Why do some people with PTSD actively seek recovery (get therapy and meds, do research about PTSD, try new strategies for recovery, write about it, etc.) but others seem unable or resistant to make even small steps toward recovery? (I have PTSD and am in recovery. I'm working with some...
