I recently lost my sister unexpectedly, and due to the circumstances of her death I have been diagnosed with PTSD. I have changed so much as a person, I dont even know myself anymore. Every night I have nightmares and wake up soaked in sweat, I barely sleep. My self esteem no longer exists and I'm afraid to leave my house. I don't want to be around my friends or family and have been completely isolating myself. I hate who I've become and I dont know how to change it. Any advice?

hi Tiffany

please don't hate yourself over this,
I know how easy that is to do ...
seeing family and friends is key to getting through this
getting through rather than getting over I think
do some writing as well, maybe in a lovely notebook
you need all the help you can get, including some therapy if possible
please let people help you

It's natural to react badly to this kind of loss.

I know this sounds trite, but - stop isolating yourself. I know it's hard, but the longer it goes on, the harder it will be to get back to "normal", such as it is.

Just talk to some family or friends about it, or anything else, to be honest. Don't lose the ability to engage with teh world.
