I Have Ptsd But I Know I Can Survive It!

I was diagnosed with PTSD about 3 years ago. I have a great therapist and I work with him weekly to overcome my depression, anxiety and fears.  I have had a long list of stressful, painful, fearful and painful experiences starting from when I was a young child and all through my adult life.  I struggle with isolation, depression, anger, anxiety, nightmares, dissassociation and other symptoms.  Sometimes I feel that I can't go on but my therapist has helped me to cope with my worst days and to look forward to a future where I will be happy and comfortable with my slef and my life.  I hope and pray that others who cope with this disaorder can seek out support and make positive changes in their lives too.  If I can help by listening, offering positive support or encouragment please turn to me.

I have the same from being abused for 17 years by my x. We have two boys so we have to communicate by email. sunday nite, he was so verbally abusive, I had a severe panic attack and have not left my room since. I've suffered from left brain cesiure disorder from the beatings, I have nerve damage as well which cause me to have tremors. people do not understand. People are always saying "what do you do" "job" I can't imagine. I know in my brain what I need to do, however I am totally scared to leave the house at times. Does it ever stop?
