Maybe you are right, I wasn't professionally diagnosed. I did have post traumatic stress though, self diagnosed I guess. I definitely had the after affects of being physically hit. Also I was raised in a violent home, constant yelling, and everytime my boyfriend would yell and hit me, I would revert back to feeling like I was a child again, loud sudden noises would startle me and I felt like I was highly strung, a bundle of nerves so to speak. Anxiety was also very heightened, I couldn't express my feelings and would bury them. After the medication I've been on for the bipolar, I no longer suffer the symptoms of post traumatic stress. So I'm sorry, I didn't know what the difference between the pts and PTSD, so thank you for clarifying that for me.Oh so probably post traumatic stress(PTS) and not post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD).The first usually resolves on it's own while the other doesn't,the reason it's called a disorder.
I guess I'm still confused.You say you weren't diagnosed with PTSD but said you suffered it when you had your babies.PTSD isn't something that just lasts for a little bit then goes away.But I am glad you have recovered from whatever it was.
