At least I think I do- I didn't give her too much opportunity to talk because I was busy spilling out all my "stuff". LOL! But I really like that she let me talk and do this. I know it can't and won't always be that way, but I sure needed it lately. She had called me a few weeks ago and we talked a while on the phone about a brief background and she had gone thru notes written in my personal file at VA so that gave her some info to go on. She did let me know that she knew the Department of Juvenile Justice system and how the juv courts system works, etc, so it was nice to know she understood what I was talking about when referring to some of these battles with legal people over difficult child's issues. Being a VA therapist, I wasn't sure she would be familiar with this stuff. She said my stress level has been way too high dealing with all this the past four years, there were clear triggers for the PTSD symptoms to come back and she had no doubt that these were PTSD symptoms. Also, she said I was exhibiting an enormous amount of pain and hurt about difficult child and his current situation. (What diagnosis do you get for major heartache and broken mommy heart?) I'll try to let her talk more when I see her next week.
