PTSD Getting Worse

Thu, Jan 2nd 2003

I have post traumatic stress disorder. When I get sometimes feel the least little bit anxious I start thinking that I should do away with myself. I have to really fight to not act on it. I have come a long way in my healing but I don[t want things to stay this way. It is too tiring. I also get angry very easily and say things I shouldn't. It was never like this before in my therapy. Any thoughts.
