I lost my mental independence in relation to my mom, sensed I was like a ten year old, by not wanting to be alone, not taking responsabilities alone, have a kind of mental shutdown, lost all of my interests in life, etc. Had a traumatic experience when going to Lisbon to make an EEG some time ago, plus I had a severe moto accident tenty three years ago.Do I have PTSD or is it another condition? I'm diagnosed as paranoid schizoaffective bipolar type.

A serious trauma brings PTSD. If your paranoid schizoaffective with bpd I'd concentrate on that first though.

Hi there @micas

A severe accident could possibly cause PTSD but only a professional can diagnose that.

Are you experiencing PTSD symptoms? Most people that go through trauma don't end up with it but some do.

It's worth discussing with a professional though.

Hugs
