Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? - May 23rd 2011, 12:39 AM

I've been through a traumatic experience...
I was hit by a car while I was crossing the street when I was 16. I had lots of injuries, I fractured my neck and back and leg even a cracked skull, and had tons of internal bleeding... And of course I had psychlogical problems

I'm 17, turning 18 in a few months. It's been 2 years since the accident, however it's still so hard to deal of the aftermath of the accident...
I am so Happy I'm okay But I feel so alone, I feel rejected with society! I feel like people don't like me anymore and that they hate me becuase of how I've become. I'm constantly being left out of all the fun in life...
My parents say I lived becuase I have a purpose in life...
However I feel as that God or slmething else hates meand wants me to suffer...
I feel like I lived only to suffer and to cry all the time..! I've even thought of suicide. I don't know anymore. It's like the accident changed everything. I'm behind in school, don't even know what I want to do in uni or my life and as said before i feel unwanted and that my friends come to me as a last resort...

I was just wondering if I. May be suffering from PTSD or if I may need extra help...i'm just tired of being alone and feeling unwanted and crying...

Hi Hannah,
I'm not sure if it's PTSD, but it's hard to tell. It does sound like you are having a bit of a hard time and may be suffering from depression.
Maybe you should try talking to a therapist or counselor about what you're going through, and how the accident has affected you.
Maybe instead of trying to figure out why you lived after that accident, try to think of it in a positive way. Just try to tell yourself that you lived through it and you're better now and try to put in the past.
If you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me.

Why do you feel left out?

Did it leave you disabled? Disfigured? Is that making you feel unwanted? that is natural, but it would be good to see a shrink who could honestly sort it out.

However if you are a functionining teenager, it probably is paranoia caused by PTSD.

Seeking help would be wise, no matter how many details you give me, it would be better to talk face-to-face with someone who could help you.
