When I was being admitted to the ward the man said I could have PTSD. Is this due to almost being killed? I was really depressed just tired of the sza. I always thought it only affected veterans and military.
My mom has PTSD from an accident. I guess it happens to a lot of people. I’ve never been diagnosed.
Being almost killed could definitely give someone PTSD.
I guess that makes me schizoaffective ocd PTSD depression. ■■■■.
I get flashes of abuse when I was a kid. Now in response to getting yelled at I kind of put my hands up defensively which bugs people
Some guy just told me to go hang myself. From outside. Going by my door. What a piece of ■■■■.
I have PTSD from being attacked at work by one of my clients.
Yikes. Did they get arrested?
What do you do for a living @ninjastar?
No, he was a severely disabled 16 year old child who was already living in an institution. He couldn’t be much more arrested than he already was. I did behavioral therapy for mentally ill teenagers. I got attacked a whole bunch, but only one instance gave me PTSD. The rest were just funny stories.
I’ve had a shoulder dislocated, a finger broken, a chunk of my ankle got bitten out, bit multiple times in less severe ways, and I have a scar on my face from when a kid threw a book at my head. But the one that gave me PTSD was when a student grabbed me by the hair and bashed my skull against a brick wall repeatedly. I couldn’t walk, read, or speak. I had to relearn pretty much everything in rehab.
Ouch, I would never work there, that’s scary.
Why not find another job?
Jesus I’m sorry. Are you gonna be okay,?
That’s terrifying I’m so glad you recovered to the extent you have. Bless you for helping troubled kids. I’d love to help others with mental illness but I don’t think I’ve got the chops for it.
Sometimes people suck. Don’t take it to heart.
I did find another job, eventually. Back when I took the job I was a bit of an adrenaline junkie. But once I met Mr. Star, I started being less self-destructive, and he begged me to get a boring desk job. So I did.
I have PTSD from being molested as a kid. I’m fine 99%of the time, but I go off the deep end if I see a kid in danger or being abused in some way.
Hey you’re in Texas cool.
I’ll remember that tomorrow.
