I have had ptsd due to 28 years of DV. Only go out if absolutely necessary, hate phone calls i don't recognise also texts and emails send me in a panic. I just cold and carry on. Psychiatric assessment diagnosed other issues beside. Now my son has had a really had accident. While waiting for air ambulance etc he was on the phone to me screaming and crying. He will eventually walk again, but he is in a mess. I can't get the call out of my head, I can hear it in my sleep. I cry to even open my front door. It's been over 3 Seems now and it's not subsiding. Really struggling. To add insult to injury cap want reassess me for esa.

I am so sorry to hear your son had an accident. It must have been very worrying and upsetting to hear him scream and cry. I can fully understand why this has triggered your ptsd. Do you think it would help to talk to a therapist? Being assessed for esa is so stressful too. It is such bad timing for you.

I am sorry about your son. It would be stressful for anyone. I'm sorry if I get this wrong but esa is emotional support animal. This might help. I am a veteran, I was diagnosed for over 30 years. Your battle with PTSD is hard. I'm sorry again about your son. I wish I give some helpful advise. Keep up the battle and I hope it gets better.
