The social stigma of PTSD

I was assaulted a few years back by the owner of a funeral home I managed. As a result, I could no longer continue my career as an embalmer.

I was diagnosed with PTSD due to the assault and the years of dead bodies.

It's gotten to the point where I don't tell anyone about it. The first question is "were you in the military?". When I would say no, I was assaulted, I get a look mixed with pity and disbelief. Then there are people who just dismiss my horror and think I'm just mentally weak.

It's hard enough to cope without the stares and whispers. I know I shouldn't care what people think of me, but sometimes I feel like the town crazy. Even worse is when I'm asked if i ever go into a "rage". Makes me feel like a monster.

Does anyone here deal with PTSD? It's a lonely affliction...

3. Yes. I tell everyone. And my everyone I mean the people in my life

who are not ***holes. PTSD has me allergic to ***holes. So there are none in my life. I do fine most of the time with nice people. There are so many things I wish I could do which I can't. But mostly I just wish I did not have so many moments when I am afraid for me and others. As to loneliness i like to spend time alone and always have, even before I developed ptsd in my 30s. I have a lovely family and other people in my life every few days. I have to work too hard to hear so that i have always found being alone relaxing where I can think about the world or read. And feel connected that way. Always have. So i don't get the loneliness you are talking about. I am both very unlucky and very lucky. Meds help a great deal.*

*I'll bet they do, especially if they're controlled substances.

5. Im down to one friend

And a handful of family members.

I live in a very small town. My assault* was in the local news so nearly everyone knew what happened.

The fear and anxiety is crippling at times.

8. Oh that is tough. I just had to give up my hairdresser because she

was gossiping about me to me. So I get the small town thing. Only my small town gaslit me. That does make it very much worse. Treat the DU and the internet like the campfire we would have been sitting around thousands of years ago..telling our story to our peeps.(((HUGS))).    Yes crippling. I had a DUI as I started drinking heavily after I was traumatized at 30. That really affected my adrenaline. So I can't ski or drive or ride a bike. Or watch any exciting sport on the tv. I can't work. Which I miss probably the most this month. Someone I trust a great deal told me this month not to work as my trust issue are unfair to put on others. So that is another dream gone. Gossip gets to my friends and I lose them. Pretty hard life so I'm glad I'm on meds. I was always very soft. Never would have chosen this life. My life is too big for me. All I can do is politics online, evolutionary psychology and read novels and cultural histories. I find focusing my interests gives me joy. And time for family.

<<<forgets.  Isn't this primitive ^^^ one of the militant gays on Skins's island?

Actually he was caught getting a little to friendly with the dead bodies and was fired.

It doesn't take captain obvious to realize being an embalmer requires that the patient be dead, live people don't usually want to be enbalmed, except if toy are nancy peolsi or diane finestein. :lmao: :lmao:

There is hardly an adult on this planet who has not had some sort of @#$% happen at some point in their lives. Whether this "assault" was sexual or a murder attempt, it is not the same as being in combat with people trying to kill you and living 24x7 where such an assault could commence any second! Living in combat and a combat zone causes real PTSD; having your kitty die or being "assaulted" does not, and calling it PTSD dishonors and insults those who have survived combat! Just as calling your purse poodle a "service animal" or "therapy animal" dishonors and insults people who really need and have a trained service animal!

I have sympathy for people who have had @#$% happen in their lives. I've had some. But people who cave in to their @#$% and make that @#$% their identity? Not so much. This DUpipo should take a job as an embalmer, face down their fear daily for a week or a month, and their reason will have conquered their fear.

but you didn't tell them the full story, did you Jen?

From the first link:

Quote
You were there when I mysteriously contracted Small Pox while writing on the virus in my college Microbiology class. Turned out to be a false alarm but my Professor insisted I was a hyperchontriac. I respectfully disagree and I am convinced that I cured myself with wine, weed, and mushrooms.

My Pathology professor was not so understanding when I got a sudden and debilitating case of Mad Cow Disease. I had prions eating my brain for weeks, which gradually subsided after being treated for anxiety disorder.

Yet she claimed just a few sentence later that she had gotten off the drugs. How do you cure yourself with substances you aren't using?

Quote
I was working doing land scaping at age 23 when I got pregnant with my son. I had never had any responsibilities before. I was selfish, messed up with drugs and alcohol, and completely content with the way things were. I was the stereotypical party girl.

I stopped taking drugs almost immediately (addiction is powerful). I had never been so happy in my life. His father moved in with me and promised to help out and be there for me and our baby.

When my son was a year and a half old, my outlook on life, purpose, and human beings as a whole species turned upside down. I found out that my boyfriend was molesting my 13 year old sister. (I know this is heavy, but it gets better, I promise).

Guys who impregnate 22/23 YO girls they are not married to are not moral and mental paragons. This one was worse than average. I wonder how much older than backtoblue Pedophile Baby Daddy was. If more than 3 or 4 years, that should have been a very loud and raucous alarm bell! But I guess dope dulls one's "hearing".

Re the latter link, the guy fought it, so he didn't get a plea deal - no reduction in charges or sentence. So if he really laid a gun on backtoblue's desk before waving his wiener, why only 6 months for a sentence and no mention of the gun in the description of the charges? Methinks backtoblue exaggerated what happened in fashioning her :bouncy: .

So backtoblue is a 39YO single mother whose ambition for the next 4 or 5 decades of her life is to leech off US and Arkansas taxpayers.

Fixed a typo.

It doesn't take being a fictional spirit-guide to know the DUmmies idiots and lie all of the time. All it takes is reading their writings.

I know of no "social stigma" surrounding PTSD. As for the OP, if you ask me he/she is just using it as an item on his/her "reasons to pity me" list. For some reason, liberals love being pitied for their real and imagined issues.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

My Pathology professor was not so understanding when I got a sudden and debilitating case of Mad Cow Disease. I had prions eating my brain for weeks, which gradually subsided after being treated for anxiety disorder.

So, she contracted Small Pox, a disease that's been eradicated for over 40 years.  And, shortly thereafter, contracted Mad Cow Disease.  Interestingly, humans don't get Mad Cow Disease.  They get variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) from eating cattle infected with Mad Cow Disease.  There have only been 4 cases of vCJD in the US ever and they've all died, as vCJD is incurable and lethal within about a year or so.  She cured both with a mixture of drugs, booze and therapy.  Why do I think her grasp on reality is marginal at best?  Frighteningly, she claims to have some medical education.  Glad that she was only working on dead people.

Also, you would hope that a college educated hypochondriac, with a medical background, could actually spell the word and come up with better false illnesses.
