PTSDis what my partner apparently suffers from its a bizarre tale..probably in some ways worse than combat..her father stabled her in the heart when she was 5 in a schizophrenic episode he spent 5 yrs in a mental hospital and on his release..he returned and became the childrens main care-giver.. her mother went to work in the city only returning on week-ends , he moved the whole family out to the sticks because of his paranoia and they lived like it was the 1800s in tents for years only well water no showers..wood stoves..outhouse.. while he slowly built a house..she lived everyday wondering if he would snap..she was befriended by a preacher when she was 14 who would bring out food take her to church ..let her use the shower there..he was murdered and her father was the main suspect but never charged...she left home at 19 some how she graduated on the honor roll ..her father just completed the house as she was leaving .. ten years later he phones trying to get her to come for a visit but I talked her out of it the next day he shot and wounded her mother and brother...and ended up back in a mental hospital..he was only in there a month and was released and returned home to his wife and son !..while awaiting trial on attempted murder..he was found not guilt by reason of insanity again...then a year later the police call..question her about the murder that took place with the preacher when she was 14 ..apparently her father said something about it while he was in the mental hospital but its not admissible as a confession because he was certified as insane at the time and they wanted to know if he ever discussed while 'sane" so in many ways this trauma has gone on for a lifetime .I have a lot of sympathy for it but I sure wish there was something that could help her with her panic and anxiety
