Question by MarlaSinger: Could this cause post traumatic stress disorder?
I am 29 (female), and 2 years ago my stepfather and I got in a disagreement. He hit me in the face, causing me to fall to the ground and my nose was bleeding. He hit me occasionally when I was younger too, and this brought back a lot of bad memories.

I have certain symptoms of PTSD, and when I think about the incident it makes me upset and sometimes cry, even 2 years later.

Could I have post traumatic stress disorder?

Question by Shannon: Could I have post traumatic stress disorder?
Around 5 years ago I was finally out of a domestic violence situation, where my guardian’s partner use to hit us and mentally and emotionally abuse us. Although it was 5 years ago I still find it constantly playing on my mind. I have regular nightmare about some of the times he would hit us, and I have reoccuring memories of what happened. However, some of the events I find hard to remember, whereas others constantly flash into my mind at random times. I also get very scared if I see a car with is familiar to what he drives with the thought that he could be in that car. And I am also finding it extremely hard to stay close to people, I constantly feel isolated and detached from others. These memories and nightmares are making things hard, as I am finding it extremely difficult to sleep.
Is there anyway that I could have post traumatic stress disorder still even though its 5 years down the line and I’ve been having this for around 4 years.. Just want to know as I won’t be going to the doctors because I know anti depressants do not look good on your medical record, I’d rather suffer in silence.
Thanks in advanced.

My friend is getting harassed by this Sarra Ruth chick, she’s bi- polar. She got rejected from some guy, he thinks she’s desperate. He threw beer in her face, she’s completely insane. She’s chasing some guy that doesn’t want her, she harassing the female he does like!

She keeps stalking her, is stuck on her like glue. She’s f*cking with her head, trying to say she’s bi-polar and she’s not. She’s had therapy about a yr ago, has seen a therapist for over a yr. Her therapist took her final notes before she retired. She say’s that Angela has Post Traumatic Stress, that she needs to be in a positive environment from being bullied. She has been bullied for about 7 yrs now, and it’s non stop. It’s been continually being bullied over, over again.

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?
