Flashbacks, that is, reliving some or all of the traumatizing event as though it is happening in the present.

Nightmares of traumatizing events or similar content.

Hallucinations, delusions, or illusions that are related to traumatizing events.

Severe, recurring anxiety reactions or panic, with heart palpitations, rapid breathing, sweating, and trembling, and a sense of impending doom.

Feeling paralyzed with fear or wanting to run away.

  1. This experience for me was the worst.
    Severe, recurring anxiety reactions or panic, with heart palpitations, rapid breathing, sweating, and trembling, and a sense of impending doom.

    I was agoraphobic hiding during the day in my dark garage when that impending doom made a minute last an hour. Life was an endless explosions of panic with shaking and a feeling that I was no longer in control.

    What would ever help me recover from this seemed to not exist for a time.

    All of my thinking was the opposite of reality.

    I guess that is why nit is called a disorder.

  2. Drs. Monet and Harlow, psychologists, Sarasota Clinic, phenod me May 31, 2012, to discuss the fact that three (3) VA doctors at the Sarasota Clinic refused medical treatment to me and refused to refill active VA anti-psychotic prescriptions for me. Drs. Harlow and Monet promise a phone call to schedule an appointment. As of today, June 18, 2012, I have not received the promised telephone call. So, where is the outstanding PTSD VA help.
