Just because you may believe that you have experienced less trauma than
others, it does not mean the pain that you are feeling is any less.
Also, just because there may be periods when you think you are cured it does
not mean PTSD won’t return.
I’m a nurse and just recently I witnessed a traumatic event at work.
As a nurse I see a lot of trauma, however this particular event has
triggered something deep inside me.
I cannot relax, I am tearful & fearful, I cannot concentrate, and I want to
sleep all the time. And although I have everything to live for, I think
about not living.
The feeling is similar to the feeling I had years ago when my mother was
At the time I thought I was bullet proof and believed I could cure her.
However after a month I experienced all the symptoms as described above.
I feel like harming myself to make my pain ‘identifiable.’ But from
experience with others I know that isn’t a solution.
From experience I know that in time there will peace. But right now I know
that I need help.
I’m off to the doctor real soon.

Unfortunately, I completely agree.
Have a good trip. I am glad that you know your own signals!
Smile and there will be something to smile about!

Be warned Nancy….. if this is the same pugsley (and I’m sure it is.
email@example.com?) as I know, he is a well known liar and a fraud. He
claims he was a POW during the Vietnam war. Got captured and was
tortured for 2-3 days (depending on when he tells the story) before they
‘realised’ he was a New Zealander civvie and let him go!!
He later admitted to me on the n’g that he had lied.
The other story he is telling at the moment is that he was captured, his
g/f escaped and a rescue operation was mounted by the SAS to free him!!
I have him killfiled. Don’t be sucked into his lies.

Don’t put it off. A few years ago I was in a car wreck on the freeway.
It was a big pileup, and all of us were hurt some, I had herniated disks
in my neck and a concussion. Dang car was so small it didn’t matter I
was wearing my seat belt, I whacked my head a good crack on the steering
Afterwards, I was afraid to drive. That’s silly, I thought, and gritted
my teeth and drove anyway. Then I started to feel that “going down the
rathole” feeling, so I called the therapist I had gone to years before
for PTSD and said, hey, I think I need a booster shot. So I went in a
few times, she did a round of EMDR and this thing that was new at the
time called Thought Field, and after a few visits I was fine.
So things can get back to what’s normal for you pretty quick if you hop
on it before you get too messed up. At least it worked that way for me.

First of all I would like to say contrary to Peter Lucas’s remarks, although
I am no angel I am basically an honest person.
Anybody can check that I am a registered nurse.
Anyway, yep went to doc.
Suggested attending rehab for a while to deal with latest trauma, which I

Yep Lucas is correct, I’m the same person, and I suffer PTSD.
firstname.lastname@example.org is valid. Write to me and find out if you want.
Anyway I had PTSD before it was a recognised disease in Australia and New
Before it was panic attacks, which was treated with vallum.
True I was in Vietnam and a volunteer with Red Cross.
That is old news.
Mistakenly thinking that Lucas understood, I sent him a email, which he
displayed on Usenet.
True I was captured by VC.
Wrong that it was 2-3 days.
Like a p****** contest I guess I exaggerated time to Lucas.
It was more like 24 hours.
I was unconscious when rescued and medivaced out of SVN.
PTSD not only from that incident. There were other incidents before.
