I have had some huge traumas in my life. I was treated for depression, panic attacks, anxiety, you name it. I never got much better and this was a 32 year ongoing thing. Finally I broke. People were scared of me because I didn't make any sense at all. I was not sleeping, eating nothing. I went to jail. Never been in jail in my life. That was a trauma too. In jail I was monitored for over a month. They concluded that I had PTSD . I was allowed to go home with the orders to go for help. I did. I have been on mirtazapine and Lexapro for a year now. I finally feel real , I feel normal, I sleep at night. I don't walk around in a nightmare anymore. It is like a miracle . Oh the years wasted not knowing what was wrong. You shouldn't have to go to jail to be diagnosed. It is a shame that we scare people even ourselves. Thank God for that beautiful tiny pill.

I have gained a lot of weight too. But, it is such a relief to be able to live my life again and sleep that I just don't let myself worry about it. I have been so messed up for the last 35 years that having a life again makes up for the weight gain. I may feel differently later. But, for now. I am just so relieved to just be able to think again.
