I have a history of depressive episodes. But in 2002 something happened that pushed me into a depression so different and worse. For the last 12 years I believed I was suffering from what doctors told me was treatment resistant major depressive disorder. It has been a living hell. I always thought I had PTSD but no one agreed with me, as I wasn't raped or witness to a horrific event. I recently switched psychopharmacologists - the minute I started telling him my history he said "you have PTSD." Then I researched it and found C-PTSD. It was describing ME. I have lost a decade of my life on the wrong diagnosis. Has this experience happened to others? What success has anyone had beating C-PTSD? Thanks.
