I've been on about 10 different types of meds. They've tried therapy with groups and 1 on 1. I came to the conclusion I'll have it the rest of my life and just to learn to live with it.

Hey man stay strong, every one has issues and if you need someone to lay it on the line with I am here. I like to think of VG as my other family and could talk to anyone of the member if I had some sort of issues.

Mental health is one of the hardest things to work on, meds dont always work a I myself suffer from schizophrenia, ur not alone in ur problems. the hard thing is to say what you know is wrong and saying. for me it helped saying it alone and then worked my way up to sharing with others, I see someone once a week for my issues, things can happen to use that are really deep and messed up, talking to someone who just listens can have a huge impact

Something that I would recommend as a mental health therapist is look for support groups in your area.  It took a long time for people to recognize PTSD as something that does impact people on a daily bases and some people can MANAGE their symptoms and some people still need help no matter what they have for resources.  I would reccomend https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/ as another resource that can hook you up with someone to talk to if you want that is specilized in what you are looking for and insurance coverage if that is an issue.  Vets have Veteran Center and some links that are not known, http://www.va.gov/,  or look for some mental health centers around you as well http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/finding-therapy.  Groups are another option that you can utilize, some people like them because you do not have to do 1 on 1 and like you said you want to know how many other people are impacted by it.  Peer support groups are also beneficial I have found from former clients. 

If you are looking for more information about the technical aspect of PTSD pick up a DSM-5, this is what clinicians use to diagnose and help treat symptoms.  

You are not alone when it comes to having PTSD or some form of trauma related injury; either mentally or physically.  

Hope some of these resources help,
