Hello. My name is Jassy and I came here hoping for advice from other people. A few weeks ago I was officially diagnosed with PTSD and GAD. I never knew I had them. I got them after being raped at gunpoint about 2 and a half years ago. I ended up getting into a long term relationship that just recently ended and I'm feeling my anxiety worse than ever. I can't sleep, eat, or even drink (I have a lot of nausea). I feel like my body is ripping apart from the inside and it's driving me literally insane. It's getting increasingly more unbearable as time goes on and I'm not sure what to do.
I'm currently going to counseling for it 1 time a week but I'm not on any meds. I'm really in need of some advice because I don't have anyone to answer my questions.
What can I do to calm down? (I've tried everything I can think of).
Is there any way to make myself feel better so I can eat/drink?
I really could use to help because I'm having so much trouble even living at all right now.
