Combat PTSD Forum
I know in another post I wrote off going back to that VA clinic in particular. But I had to get follow up results on a CT scan and ultrasound of my heart from my PCP.
I began bitching with my PCP immediately about the lack of treatment for chronic pain. I wanted to try something like what Jimmy mentioned here in this post.
The doc seldom looks at me when I speak usually. This time he flat out stops, looked me in the eye and says..."Son, You have PTSD. You've always had it. You have...
For those of you that have me on Facebook, you would have seen that I felt like giving up yesterday and walking out.
Pain wakes me up around 4 am every day just about, 5 am other days. My anxiety has been through the roof along with my stress levels.

My wife found texts between myself and a female, while they looked incriminating it was me just bull shittin around and flirting. I never fucked the chick, anyways this was the last straw for the Mrs. I can't help but think that the emotional issues and me never seeming motivated to do anything as well as PTSD is the majority of the issue though. Well tomorrow she's gone, and I don't think she is coming back. I...
Yesterday I was running errands. I was on the highway doing 70 and pass a mini-van which was doing maybe 65. I tool on down the interstate minding my own business and notice in my rear view the mini-van is approaching fast and beginning to pass. My first thoughts are "WTF" what's this drivers problem. (It drives me crazy when a car drives slow and then speeds up and re-passes you.)
