    So, I have a question.........I have always believed I had some form of PTSD from my upbringing and early stages of life. I have a traumatic history with my father and even now as an adult, I struggle. Thus, me believing I have PTSD. There are certain things that trigger me....maybe something I see of TV or something someone says that reminds of me my past. I cannot count the amount of times that I have woken up in the middle of the night screaming at my dad in a dream/nightmare. So, without ever being truly diagnosed, is it possible that this could be PTSD?

    Yes, this does sound like PTSD or CPTSD. Complex (CPTSD) stems from childhood. I had it too and I used to have nightmares. In my waking hours, I have memories that come into my mind and they feel painful. Evthoughght it shouldn't feel painful. PTSD means you don't have a control of your memories. So when you are sleeping they will also manifest as a bad dream.

    That sounds like what I go through. I'm thinking about going and getting a proper diagnosis. Thank you!!!
