I too have PTSD from childhood (which was horrific) and for years i used to explode on the ones i love or id manipulate people into giving me what i wanted., when someone would tell me "no" it would go right through me as if they were trying to hurt me . I'm working on it now and even my wife notices how calm i am , I'm also bipolar and on a lot of meds , being a disabled veteran can be rough at times because obviously its tied to the navy and i had a terrible experience in boot camp , i guess what I'm trying to say is i need some help with my outbursts and yelling at my wife she doesn't deserve this yet i do it i tell her I'm sorry and it would be forgotten until next time now she's at the point that she just walks away on me and this is a tough one i feel so dismissed and forgotten about but i i cant say i blame her i mean after all who am i to yell at her its so wrong my wife and i are doing much better with communication and allowing the other to speak their mind , now you're probably asking yourself what does that have to do with PTSD well when im on one of my rages ( not anymore only the past) i cause a breakdown in my marriage ....life is good today but the stress i go through at times is so overwhelming that i don't know what to do with myself , is there anyone who can help me because lord knows i need a bunch of it.

I have PTSD too so I understand feeling overwhelmed. Are you getting help dealing with your PTSD?
