Sadly a lot of people fake it. They make it look bad for those who really suffer

ptsd anxiety and the me too movement where everyone was sexually assaulted

Earlier it was depression now its ptsd. It feels like humanity is slowly learning what words for diseases, disorders and traumas mean, hence realizing what they are.

I think some use it lightly. Although if U've watched people you love die. Have been raped. Been kidnapped or seen chaos in the linext of duty then PTSD is just. Probably not so much if uve lost ur purse or wallet. Lol

That's a sad thought..
People who suffer with this condition need support and understanding..

It's not a buzzword, it's a sometimes debilitating condition that shouldn't be taken lightly.

i just remember when it was reserved for people who had suffered severe atrocities like war, genocide, etc. now it seems like it’s assigned for very domestic, more common reasons [@349735,onestarrynight]

I once went to the toystore and i was going to buy a tamaguchi but they were sold out

I was diagnosed with it some years ago and rejected the diagnosis because I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon. Say the key words to a psychiatrist...depressed,anxious,sad,...and a few more...and BAM... you have something. As the years went by I realized that I do indeed suffer from PTSD...I come from am extremely violent childhood and that abuse, extreme stress brought on horrible panic attacks, nightmares where the second I'd drop off to sleep some horrible image would pop into my head and leave me filled with dread and fear and a feeling of being taken off the planet and those feelings clung to me all the next day. Now I avoid any situation or person that might trigger it. It's a real thing as is Bi-polar, which it seems everyone IS these days, who doesn't have mood swings, but I do believe it is over diagnosed now and over medicated. Seems many have become so thin skinned they have very weak coping skills so it becomes a "disorder" of some kind and the pill pushers make a huge profit... I'm pissed that I actually have it and pissed that so many just think they have it so it's not taken seriously enough so that the real sufferers become suspect
