PTSD in the News: Weekly Roundup

The first bit of news has to do with the new poll on the sidebar:

Q: Who have you told about your PTSD diagnosis?

A: Friends, Family, Partner, Colleagues, No one.

Have you left your answer yet? I'm interested in getting a sense of how much we talk. I didn't tell anyone but my family for a long time. When I finally got comfortable with the idea of my diagnosis I told a few friends so they could understand my odd behavior whenever it somehow impacted them.

I did not, however, tell the man I was seeing at the time. Right, or wrong? Well, that relationship was doomed anyway.

In a PTSD forum I participate in a new conversation has cropped up about when to tell your partner about your past. Or, more pointedly, how that past affects your present. Something to think about as the BRIDGE THE GAP workshop topic for the month is how and when and who to tell about our PTSD diagnosis.

And now, for this week's hot topics in PTSDland:

***Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Study***

If you have been affected by a traumatic or life-threatening experience, you may qualify for this study of PTSD. The research site is in New York City. For more information please click here.
