Hello. This is my first time here. I was diagnosed with PTSD

[10]

Hello. This is my first time here. I was diagnosed with PTSD last week and I;m looking for help. I'm experiencing severe anxiety...the fear is overwhelming. Does this ever get any better? The anger I'm feeling is awful and my family and friends have no idea what to do with me.I don't know what to do with me.

I have ptsd as well. It's a tough thing to live with. I have to be extra careful what I tell people not to invite loads of invalidation from people who don't even know what they're talking about. Like as soon as you have any condition everything you say is just not valid now. And everything that goes wrong can just be blamed on the ptsd. If you can find support, or be your own support it will be much easier. Not sure what your situation is. But if are actively working on your self it should improve in time. PTSD is not an incurable PD

Hi- welcome to the group!
Please do not give up, you will get better. Please take good care of yourself, eat healthy diet and have enough sleep. Join a support group, this will help you not feel isolated and alone. Volunteer some your time to those who are in need and connect with your friends.
Try to surround yourself with positive people that will encourage and give you support. Have a visit with your doctor regularly. I hope you will feel better soon. I will be praying for you.
