I take zolaft in the day and trazadone in the evening... the meds were prescribed to me for PTSD. I am a domestic violence survivor. I usually feel like I have padding in between my brain and my skull lol, but it is better than what I was... unfortunately, I can never fight the feeling of being alone. I have a husband and two children but I feel alone. I could go places with lots of people and have conversations but I still feel alone... I could even hang with friends... ALONE. I have no attachment to anything to where I feel like, this is where I belong. How long will this last? I just feel like hitting up a bar and getting whiskey drunk while strumming on a guitar singing the lady blues!!!
How long will this last? That's a good question sweetie. It all depends on how long you've been taking the meds. Also I think how bad your PTSD is and how long you've been suffering from it plays a big part in how much time it takes to get relief. When we have these kind of mental problems they don't ever really go away. That's just my opinion. It's the meds that help us deal with the problem. Talk to us here or other online support groups. We're here to help each other get through our problems and advice on everything. Let us know dear how you feel anytime. I don't know if I was very helpful but I try. ; )
