Hi All, I've had PTSD symptoms and the anxiety that goes along with it since DDay#1 and full blown since DD#2. Today I noticed that I'm now getting *I think* worse.

I went to the dentist today to get a cavity filled. This has never bothered me before, but I found myself anxious, feeling closed in, and actually scared I was going to choke. ?? Same dentist, he did nothing different, but I felt my pulse quickening and I was more jumpy than normal. He even commented on it and, like a good doc, stopped a couple times so I could catch my barings. ??

Anyone ever experience this before? DH and I have hit a rough patch this last month, with August being full of trigger dates for me, but for the most part we've been chugging along pretty good. He hasn't done anything that would make me feel suspicious and are communication is still pretty open.

I'm just SO SICK of this up and down roller coaster! I've never been a jealous, anxious type! Nor do I want to be. This is driving me insane!

You're NOT alone.

My anxiety issues have been blown X200 after Dday.

You reminded me of one time I took my daughter to the dentist and on the office music they played a song that triggered me. I basically fell apart in the waiting room.

What is important is that you take care of yourself. Read online about quick things to do to lower your anxiety so you can function. Eat well, sleep well, exercise to help your mind and body. Find out what triggers you and talk to your spouse about it. He should help.

You're not alone. When I think of Dday my anxiety kicks in. I basically feel like the day is happening all over again when the floor fell from under me. It's awful and certainly you are justified in your feelings.
