"An abnormal reaction to an abnormal situation is normal behaviour." - Concentration-camp survivor Viktor Frankl [hr] I am starting two threads on PTSD. The other thread is a quick reference guide for those who feel they may need help. This thread is for general discussion regarding PTSD and related issues. Please post; Any experiences you feel you wish to share as someone suffering with PTSD. Which treatments helped you, which didn't and any thoughts you may have on why they did or didn't work. Concerns you may have in coming forward to obtain help. Advice for those who are having problems. Signs to watch out for in others if you feel they may be suffering. Links to useful sites or books. [hr] If you feel you need to log as a new user to post on this thread, please do so. [hr] Previous threads on this subject have had to be deleted due to the abusive nature of some posts. Please keep all posts constructive and on topic. This is a serious issue and one which will leave people feeling very vulnerable when talking about there experiences. Please, please, please show some consideration and thought when posting. (which I know applies to me also!) Edited to add link to other thread.
