Well after about a year of hazing and maltreatment every day from my previous unit still being handled legally by my commanding general, A few months go by, after I was sent here to Wounded Warrior Battallion in Camp lejeune for treatment, at first I was severely depressed and had alot of overwhelming anxiety, and was triggered by certain types of people that reminded me of the types of marines back at my old unit...now, Im having psychotic episodes after being triggered by seeing these people, or being around those people for too long alone, or at random then being angry then progressing to having a breakdown that progresses to a wierd tingle in my brain to my pelvis and laughing uncontrollably and feeling like somethings off, then I get to the point where I dont remember much and realize after I wakeup from a “nap” that I did something of thought I dreamed something I did or was saying...Last night I was talking to my toy zebra, and finding comfort in him, then he cane alive and looked at me and I realized that hes real, so I keep him with me all the time in case I need to not feel alone...Or understood...

Ive been trying to figure out if its complex ptsd and anxiety with psychotic features, but I feel like Im losing my control over the psychotic part and I feel like I should allow myself to just let go and whatever my brain feels is right, I should go with it to figure out whats wrong with me....

Well, I confess is beyond me. It sounds like you have been through a lot. How’s the military offered you EMDR treatment? It has proven very effective for PTSD treatment.

They dont think its ptsd even though they dont want to know what happened at my old unit...They say it doesnt matter what happened....What happened happened and its in the past
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
They say I have to get out of the corps if I want to get the help I need
Customer reply replied 2 months ago

EMDR Is a type of mental health therapy in which You reprocess your trauma much like you do want sleeping. I do not know much more about it than that. I do know that it is very effective.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
