    PTSD

    Hello,

    I was dianosed with ptsd when I left my ex husband 13 years ago. I took meds at the time and did not have many problems because I did not see my ex. Now after 13 years, I has came back with a vengence. I ran into him last year. At that time I handled the situation fine. But last month, I was in the same place he was, in a stadium with 3,000+ other people the just him being there nearly killed me, I was in tears most of the weekend and it was totally ruined because of this. I don't want him to have this control over me, what can I do to deal with this in the future. We are bound to run into each other again, it is unavoidable.

    I have PSTD and have for most of my adult life. Not from my crazy ex but that did happen when I was younger. He kept me home, threatened my family. I and even he never knew what he was capable of. I finally just had enough & left but of course the fear stayed with me.

    I can tell you do not ignore this problem. Remove yourself from the area you are in. It's up to you what you would do,but please to many people just don't know what could happen or what goes through the sick peoples brains. Keep writing and good luck, I'm here if you ever want to talk.
