I think I might have PTSD on top of the SZ. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I even mentioned it to one of my psychiatrists. He said with PTSD, sufferers keep re-living traumatic experiences. I didn’t say anything else, because I didn’t want to get into where my trauma comes from. To go into detail is very hard. It’s such a long story, and I never know where to start.
I just recently took a PTSD symptom test, and scored in the “several symptoms of PTSD” range.
But one of the problems is that some of my traumatic experiences would fall in the “Hallucination” or “Delusion” category. I’m afraid my doctors are going to believe my traumas don’t exist in the real world.
Anybody out there dealing with something like this, or with PTSD, or just have any advice?
