I just would like some answers any would do on top of what I have which is er none! I have ptsd which was diagnosed 4ish years ago due to 2 lots of assault/rape which I endured when I was 19 and 25, if this wasn't bad enough it was swept under the carpet, by my family! I went to see a specialist counsellor yesterday, that I've seen for a while now and she mentioned how low and despondent I was, which I took to mean are you fed up? Well yes I am due to doctors dragging their heals to sort out an underlying health condition that was misdiagnosed over 10 years ago. My question is this (well 2 actually). Can persistent ill health drag your mood down? How do you distinguish the symptoms of ptsd with anxiety/ill health and can one of these affect the other? Please advise, I am not one for taking pills and would like a decent suggestion for an alternative if any one knows of such a thing. The counselling is good, frightening but really good, she's so understanding, but how can I continue when my physical health is so up and down. My doctor is ringing me on Monday, but you watch the usual clap-trap about anitdepressants will come out of her mouth, whereas if they did their job and sorted my physical health I'm sure my mental health would recover. Thanks.
