Hey guys, do any of you out there suffer from PTSD, and if so how do you cope and medicate with?

I took ativan for the first couple months after my incident (got attacked by a fucking bear while backpacking).  I only get panic attacks occasionally now and only when im super fucking baked, i don't take any medication anymore.  Using benzos long term can get you into trouble, I pretty much took them as perscribed.  Rarely did more than 2 mg a day and i still got a little hooked.

Was your medication paired with any therapy Bombaclaat? If so, what kind? That is if you don't mind my asking of course. :grin:

The story goes, or the way that I was told
There was a king that always felt too high and then he fell too low
And so he called all the wise men to the hall
And begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls
But here’s the thing, they came back with a ring
It was simple and was plainly unbefitting of a king
Engraved in black, it had no front or back
But there were words around the band that said
Just know: This Too Shall Pass

its all good man, i didn't know i had PTSD at the time.  Found out a year later when i described what went down to a couple counsilers.  Both aggreed that i had untreated PTSD. 

I spent 24 hours lost in the woods.  It was 95 degrees during the day.  I lost my pack so i didn't have any food or water.  It was seriously fucked up, ill write a "trip report" sometime.  Spent a night in the hospital for dehydration and exaustion, they gave me a bottle of benzos and sent me on my way the next day haha

stuff like that can make a pretty interesting "trip report"

i was sick two days ago and threw up for like 18 hours straight until i was delirious and couldn't fall asleep from the crazy ass hallucinations i kept having from the dehydration etc.
i thought about writing a "trip report" about that little experience too. lol

but, anywho, anyone i have ever known with ptsd actually got a lot further with therapy than with benzos and the like.

I have chronic PTSD. My symptoms are associated with acute trauma and ongoing traumas. I've tried around 8 anti depressants beginning at a very young age, and all of them made me manic and suicidal. One doctor put me on a lot of xanax, and that worked for a few months until I developed a tolerance. IMO there is no effective medication to deal with trauma. Focusing on one's behavior rather than one's thought process usually helps.

The problem with PTSD is that there is always a perfectly logical reason for a PTSD sufferer to feel depressed and enraged. It's not like feeling sad for no reason - there is an ever-present reason hovering at the edge of consciousness. I have coped with it (very successfully) by refocusing my identity on more positive behaviors. I try not to think of the people that have traumatized me. If I do, I don't think of them as the aggressor, but actively force myself to think of them as the unwitting participant in suffering and to feel compassion for them.
