A while ago, I suspected I had so I looked up the symptoms of PTSD and I didn’t have any of them. My first psychotic break was quite severe in every way. But I don’t have PTSD from it.

Not really, but chronic stress seems to have developed as a side effect of my AP.

I had PTSD but not from my psychotic episodes. I’m good now though, no symptoms in awhile.

I don’t have PTSD but only PTSD traits. And that is due to everything in my life: child abuse, wife abuse, suicidal ideations and psychosis.

I put yes because they went hand-in-hand, but really the PTSD was caused by a car accident

Not specific to the first episode, but living knowing that your reality and your self suddenly can go / fall in pieces has caused some ptsd symptoms.

I’m always on the run from depression/psychosis, I’m always frightened of where my own mind can take me.
