@Tinag57 @Countrygirl69 I don't have PTSD, but I have OCD and depression, and I can understand the loneliness and wanting friends. We can always talk on here if you want.

I have ptsd and depression along adhd with some other issues. I recently moved here to Colorado right at start of this pandemic. I've dealt with this since childhood with no medications that help. I have high tolerance that makes impossible to find that one combination that continues to work. making friends has been difficult my entire life. No one seems to understand the complications that come with these diagnosis. And finding a good dr that will fully listen and work with these issues hasn't been easy either. Im a single 45 yrs old living with my children and their children. I don't do well with sitting still or being alone. We all need friends. Just having someone to talk to helps tremendously. Im always here of anyone needs a friend to chat with.

My PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more have been getting the better of me these days. I can't find a doctor to listen or even do any tests(they don't even do physical exams on me anymore?!?!), I have a terrible home support system, and 3 young children. My spinal injuries and more are physically affecting my life and I'm confined to the house, and my son tested positive for COVID-19 last Tuesday... I was finally feeling well enough to schedule my vaccination on Friday, and I'm feeling very anxious about the situation. I think this discussion is exactly what's happening to me. I just needed to find someone who understands exactly what I'm going through. I have a hard time even reaching out to people anymore.

@GidgetB I am going through the same things with these doctors... There PTSD is so intense some days I just don't know what to do with myself. It's terrible when I feel like no one understands, and I feel like a burden. What do you do to cope with your symptoms? I am hearing sirens all the time and think everyone is against me lately... It's so bad some days, and I realize it's happening but can't do anything about it...
