About 2 years ago, I was sent to a behavioral psych., because my tmj was bad. I clench my teeth almost constantly, and sometimes grind. I decided right away to be honest....so when my therapist asked if there was anything significant I wanted to tell him.....I mentioned, that there was something from childhood. I wrote him a 15 page letter, and for the first time revealed that I had been molested by 3 different people as a child. At 5, 9, and 15. 2 were boys and one was a girl. Just admitting it, made me feel much better, but then I had to admit it to my family. Anyway, a few sessions later, my doc told me he thought that I had PTSD. I continued going for a short time after that, but all the talk got boring. I felt like I wasn't getting anywhere, so I quit therapy. With the help of God, I have been able to move on in many ways, but still struggle with being anxious sometimes, but I don't have panic attacks. I struggle with being genuine, but try to be. I am not really sure if i have ptsd. I feel like maybe he was wrong....was he wrong or am I still in denial? PTSD, sounds like something a person in war should have, or someone who was the victim of incest.... not a kid who was fondled by other kids. I have alot of things that have come about as a result of the way I behave, and because of living lies. I have tmj, I already told you that....I also have fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. I sometimes wonder if i am depressed. People always are shocked to find that I'm anything less than perfect......my perfect mask...funny, confident, and happy go lucky....can someone help me? Do I have ptsd or am I an imposter?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
