Question by delilah: Does anyone know the name of this condition from post traumatic stress disorder?
A girl at my school said she was raped when she was 7 and she has post traumatic stress disorder from it. She says that when people speak she sees the words above them and so she tries to just look them in the eye. She said that the words are different colors too. I have never heard of such a thing. It sounds surreal or like bull to me. But I don’t know. Has anyone heard of this?

Will being on Amitriptyline disqualify me from being a police officer?

Question by : Will being on Amitriptyline disqualify me from being a police officer?
In April, I was attacked by a girl and my head hit a cement wall. I got a concussion and now I have post concussion syndrome. I was put on Amitriptyline until the neurotransmitters in my head regulate. Will this disqualify me from being a police officer. I see a counselor who diagnosed me with a mood disorder following a traumatic brain injury. I can recover from this through exercising, enough rest, medication, and I have to go to cognitive behavioral therapy. Also, the police charged the girl and I with a summons of harassment but it was dismissed in court and I had to pay court costs. The judge said it will not show up on my record and I’m planning on getting everything expunged. Other than these two things, I am a female, 5″5, weight 150 pounds, and a college student. I made the Deans list. Am I still able to become a police officer?
