Well I have a lot of the PTSD symptoms and it seems like these are the ones that are really effecting me especially in my job.

PTSD symptoms include: increased arousal, hypervigilance, difficulty concentrating, inattention, irritability, avoidance, foreshortened view of the future, loss of motivation.

Is this a medication thing or is it a therapy thing, or both?

If anyone has any ideas I would be greatful. Its ruining my life and someday may cost me my job

I have dealt with PTSD for several years . You learn to adjust your life stile to cope. I do not go into any where that there are large crowds. In do most of my shoping at night when the stores ar mostly empty . I spend most of my time alone, but I have chose to do this . as a survival method
As far as meds go you just have to find one that will work for you. In several years I am still looking fo the one that works for me .
