    Hello Sarah, and a warm welcome to the site.

    I'm sorry that you have been diagnosed with PTSD and realise that what you have been suffering from has been affecting you in many ways and understand that there could be triggers that suddenly happen unexpectedly.

    Many of us have also suffered from this and want to help you, so please when you are ready come back to us so we can support you.

    Best wishes.
