Hi - I was vaguely diagnosed with a light case of PTSD. I'm a 35 year old woman - and looking for group resources in Los Angeles that might be helpful. Does anyone know if any?
What's weird or hard for me is that I get so demoralized by people trying to press me or take advantage - that it feels a little debilitating. It really bothers me even when businesses try to screw you over - that is how my symptoms are manifesting.
When my realtors tried to sue me for a full real estate commission after I let them go even though they didn't sell my house - that bothers me. It's so wrong it's beyond wrong - but these are kindof life events, I just have a stronger reaction to them than most people I guess. To the point I'm so stressed I get a little shortness of breath, etc.
Does anyone else have a similar diagnosis - or have supporting reasons to see how this could be PTSD, or think my diagnosis is BS?
I'm not a mental health professionial so I can't confirm the validity of your diagnosis. I will say I have experienced shortness of breath before. That's a panic reaction.
A person is not a diagnosis. A lot of people become upset when others try to press them or push them around. A diagnosis of this or that condition meets certain criteria as defined by the medical community. None of us fit perfectly into any classification. I'm not invalidating anything when I say that.
Maybe just look at like you have some issues to work on.
