I am just beginning to realize that I have PTSD. I have never been officially diagnosed. I have been through a lot of trauma. I have been threatened, chased, stabbed,and hit over the head a couple of times. I have flown in a lifeflight helicopter and nearly died a few times. A lot of this has happened at the hands of gang members. I find I can become anxious and fearful at the mere mention of these events, or through talking about gangs. I get real paranoid and have a hard time being around people. I want to lock myself in someplace safe and not come out. Can anyone relate?
