Myself and most, if not all, of my brothers in the Marines have some sort of combat related PTSD. Some have sought out CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), and other just avoid triggers. CBT is just like exposure therapy. You remember a traumatic event, under the supervision of a therapist, over and over again, and eventually you become desensitized to it. If you can, do CBT. I personally hate taking mood stabilizing meds.

I'd say an advantage you have is your awareness of where / how it has affected you. I was in the military but never saw any action so I can't relate in that regard. However, I struggled for a very long time w/ drug addiction (massive cocaine use) and the states of paranoia and confusion that result have been attributed to PTSD like manifestations. Thank god that was many years ago. During CBT, my self awareness and keen sense for detecting behavior was a huge positive in my recovery. I don't know you but I sympathize with what you're going through. I was going to say "empathize" but then you might blast me like you said above "you don't know what I've been through"....and you're right, I don't. Tons of vets on this board and others, I hope more respond to a brother in need. Zomb is a good one. He put me in my place on another board in regard to the movie, "The Hurt Locker". I was like, "wow, that movie was so great". He was like, "not if you actually lived it." That was almost 8 years ago (guessing), so we live / learn and hopefully grow up a little and become more sensitive to others. I wish you the best.

things that have heled me:

cbt therapy.

try to let go and forgive/forget. dont think about the past.

find a really good therapist.

medical marihuana helps.

remember there are people out there that KNOW how you feel. your not alone.

I don't respond to one one one therapy, but I love my group therapy.

DBSA is the group I use. They are everywhere.

You should be able to find support groups online. Most are free.

Facebook has some coping groups you can join.

The quality of them is hit or miss.

The plus side is that there is usually someone online 24/7 if you need to talk.

I'm in one under my real name, and I'm in another one under a fake account because the group is so big, the posts are not private.

I don't rely on them too much, but it's nice to have them there if I need them.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/25165739/

Hope u get the help u deserve man, and it always tears my heart out when i see vets who have to go thru any of this, my best friend suffers from ptsd and he said he just learned to turn everything off, not sure how but he did
