Its interesting that there is a bit of a theme developing in these posts about 'retrospective understanding' about trauma- you don't really understand what you're going through particularly emotionally until often much later. My father was a Lithuanian migrant war veteran who must have been suffering from PTSD or major depression - only realised this when it was too late, when he committed suicide when I was an adolescent. Since then, had my own brushes with trauma - and now when I look back on some of my reactions, they look very similar to the PTSD checklist you find on some websites. Anyone else wondering about how to diagnose PTSD?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
