I have had PTSD due to childhood events but am getting better, thankfully. I will be listening if you post.

Greetings to you all,

I suffer from PTSD due to many years of incarceration. I managed to survive many situations of "imminent death" which I had a lot of time to reflect upon, afterward. Every day, every hour, every minute, brought the threat of some obstacle, an enemy not realized until the moment of confrontation, and new and improved "security policies" that kept all the warehoused personnel at each others' throats, so to speak.

It has been nearly 15 years since I "hit the street" and the events of those years are all locked up in my mind and seem to have manifested themselves in the spirit of who I am today. To this day, I still hear the sounds, smell the odors and I can still feel the oppressive nature of my stay as a guest of the state corrections department. This condition is compounded by the fact that this economy supports the stereo-typing of ex-cons; there is no such thing. Once convicted, a person carries a life sentence - in all practicality - that cons cannot get past, no matter how much one has put one's former life-ways behind them.

Anyhow, I do not mean to digress. All these attributes of my personal form of PTSD have had the effect of adding their influence to my already irascible temperament, creating for me a maelstrom from which I cannot seem to emerge with any feeling of wholeness, leaving behind a disintegrated form of my existence; at least as it is for me . . .
