I have never really received any treatment other than anti-depressants, but wonder if I may have PTSD? Can anyone advise me? I lost my mother to cancer 12 years ago when I was 20 and watching her slowly die left me with horrific memories for years afterwards. I also lost my sister 2 years ago to Cystic Fibrosis and being the only family member left to care for her meant I sat beside her day after day in the hospital watching her fight for breath & dying slowly beside me. I loved them both so much & I feel like I have been left in a world of pain. The suffering they both endured while I sat by uselessly haunts me every day and I am only moments away from breaking down at any part of my day. I yearn for peace but I cannot have it as I have to stay here for my little boy.
