Thank you for the additional information. It helps.
I am sorry to hear about all the trauma you have been through. One of those events would have been enough, but to have survived all three is amazing.
It is a great sign of strength that you have sought help with the PTSD. Many people do not and suffer greatly. But the fact that you continue to seek help says that you are healthy emotionally and also indicates that you will recover.
PTSD is a normal reaction to an abnormal event. It affects people because it not only exposes you to life threatening situations, it makes you aware of your mortality and makes you feel vulnerable. People who have not experienced trauma have the advantage of putting a shield around themselves and creating the illusion of safety. With PTSD, that shield is taken away.
Your symptoms are very normal for someone who has been exposed to so much trauma. Seeing a psychiatrist and trying other medications can be very helpful for your depression. Many people need to try various medications before they find one that works for them. That is because everyone's body chemistry is different. So a medication that works for one person may not work for another. So keep trying.
Another way to help yourself is through self help. Learning more about PTSD and how it effects you can make a big difference in helping yourself. Here are some resources to get you started:
Support groups can also be a valuable resource in helping you overcome the PTSD. Reaching out to others who experience the same symptoms you do can alleviate stress, help you feel less alone and lift your depression. No one understands better than someone who has gone through a traumatic event. Here are some links for support groups:
As long as you are aware of your feelings and you keep working on getting help and feeling better, you will recover. Motivation is a huge factor in recovery. It sounds like you are on the right track.
