I have no military experience but I did experience a rape. I am in T and there is a posibility that I have combative PTSD not due to the military but fighting a 9 mo long battle w/ a rapist.

(((Big Mama))),

The initial information posted by Bebop is from Judith Hermans book Trama and Recovery. It is a very good book, you should see if you can find it at your local library or order it online.

Amazing, I read the brief intro here just a second ago. It is me. Someone found me. What exists inside of me is real. I'm not alone, someone even wrote a book about it for others to read. I just can't believe someone witnessed this and it helped me find me.

It's the smells that are the worst, together with the images that aren't quite there...sort of like spectres that have a form but no voice, and my bones ache with wanting to stop remembering.

I don't know if I have this condition or not but having spent several years with an NPD I feel that a huge part of me is missing - I am exhausted all the time which is showing up with work - I just have no energy and can't even remember what being really happy is I have little self-confidence and no motivation - I am literally struggling to cope with every day things - I do have better days but I am still not the person I used to be!

I agree to thank the veterans who have fought to protect Americans ( though, the last 50 years of fighting was not about protecting Americans) and have not served in an official role, but also suffer PTSD from the mechanisms of the American family court system. They currently have me living at 50% of the 2012 recognised poverty line (despite the state constitution) and continue to harass me despite the fact that my employer only has available work for half the year. I know, "Get a better job"; anyone who doesn't think I haven't tried is suffering from something else. In either case, I cannot afford healthcare despite the fact that for half the year I have health coverage, have been without medication for several years, earn a net salary of 5000$ a year, and get to see my son on a bi-weekly schedule for the cost of 35$ a visit (providing his mother is not on vacation during the entire week the visit is scheduled). I do not kill myself so that my son can have a father; in the meantime I survive on garbage and damaged goods.
Just looking for someone who's riding the same boat (he's five, so I'll be in this boat for another sixteen years).

Forgive me for my ignorance but are you thanking Veterans who have served in the past 50 years or are they excluded from the thank you's?
