I look at the topics discussed on the message boards here and I have never met anyone who is going through the same symptoms as I have.I have met people who suffered from depression or who were bipolar.The thing with ptsd is that we can suffer from every symptom that doctors test for.I remeber my first doctor I went to about this problem and he had no clue.He made me take this test in which I was asked a bunch of questions like have you lost interest in activities or have you thought of suicide and so on.I think it was the first test I made a 100 on,and also added some new answers.I think that is one of the most disabling things about ptsd at least for me,because I feel like I suffer from every symptom and then some.I have seen it on t.v. people on talk shows talking about depression or bipolar disorder.I watch these shows and I can relate and feel for people who go through that,but sometimes I can be selfish and think I wish I was only depreseed or whatever.But its not like that for me.In a typical week I can go thruogh every symptom.One of the hardest things for me latley is my short term memory or losing blocks of time.My wife is very supportive in this area. I think GOD for her everyday.She will tell me sometimes things I have done like remember you went to the grocery store and I just draw a blank.Then I feel guilty because I can't remember even things I am supposed to do with my kids.
