... hallucinations, panic attacks, and nightmares are back with a vengeance. i have been med-free this long and am reluctant to go down that path again. could the symptoms be attributed to stress alone? or is this a chemical imbalance only treatable with medication? and how do i help my boyfriend understand i have little control?
omega; I'M so sorry you're having to go through this again; But you should see your doctor they can do so much for this as you kind of know, There is no reason to suffer in silence Just be honest with your boyfriend that your PTSD is rearing it's nasty head and you need to see the doctor. Only the doctor can really tell you if it's a long term thing but the last thing you want to do is go on and off of medications many people do this myself included only to find that sometimes the medications that worked so well before don't do it as well now. So get into the doctor and get yourself taken care of. For right now don't worry about if it's a long term or just to get it under control you and a good doctor well be able to figure this out. Just thank God they have good medications that help us. Have a great weekend Chuck1957
