There seems to be no one who understands how my PTSD effects my everyday life. I have experienced multiple traumatic events while i was in the hospital.

I feel like I am no longer a part of anything socially going on at my high school. I often get flashbacks of the procedures I went through when I was in the hospital. I had to have a feeding tube placed several times. 3 of the times were feeding tubes through my nose, they could never get it into the right place, so therefore I had to go through someone jamming a foreign object into my nostral and pulling it in and out for over an hour. I also had a feeding tube in other places and went through the same things with the pulling back forth and all that. It was very painful. And I still sometimes feel that same pain.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
