Anyone else dealing with PTSD & similar mental health issues? Are you getting adequate care?
Wondering whether anyone else here has PTSD and other trauma-related mental health problems? If so, do you feel you are getting enough care? Has your Mental Health Team been helpful to you. I have been fighting for years to get enough medical help. Because I look "normal" and am articulate, over the years doctors and nurses have been way too quick to write me off as being fine and not in need of help. But the reality is I am barely able to function. I recently had 12 weeks of trauma-focused psychotherapy on the NHS and it was amazingly helpful. But they only offer 12 weeks at a time, and then it's a waiting list of about 6 months to get further therapy.
