How is PTSD defined anyway? Dumb question for someone who was a psych major, but eh, I thought I'd throw it out and ask? Sometimes I relive my past situation (physical abuse), but the people in the "images" that run through my head are replaced by different people. I usually go through these thoughts at night back-to-back with varying scenarios. Sometimes it's with a father and daughter. Sometimes mother and daughter. Sometimes the victim is someone who was younger than me, sometimes older than me, most of the time the victim is a boy, most of the time the child is a different race. It's really weird. Maybe I just came up with a mental disorder that I only have ha ha. It's like I'm obsessed over it thinking-wise, but it's not always me.
