Okay, so I know it's not good to avoid PTSD and all that... but what happens when you're at work or something and you get ridiculously bad flashbacks? What do you do to keep people from noticing? For years I've been really good at looking okay when I'm not, but lately not so much. I went to school today and got awful flashbacks for part of the day...and it was so awful and I couldn't even hide it because they were even more intense than usual...so in study hall the teacher kept asking me if I was okay and I really just wanted her to leave me alone so I said I was tired...and then she came over again later and said I didn't look like I was okay and stuff...and again later and she wanted to know if i wanted to talk but i said i was fine..but I was so messed up and didn't want her to talk to me about. And she knows I have depression and anxiety issues because her study hall is for kids with that, so she's pretty tolerant and really nice and stuff...but she doesn't know I have PTSD and I don't want her to know because that isn't something i share with just anyone... So what can I do to keep her from noticing?
