Members cant move on Posted July 14, 2012 Members Report Share Posted July 14, 2012 I was diagnosed with ptsd years ago and lost my wife five years ago. Treatment for ptsd was successful at first but about two years ago the ptsd relapsed full force but this time with my unshakeable belief that I am responsible for her death. My new treatement is doing nothing and my psychologist says it's because I don't think I deserve to get better so I'm fighting the treatment. If i'm going to move on I have to figure out how to overcome this guilt. I initially met T. fourty years ago, but we went on seperate ways. After I got divorced from my first wife (she said she couldn't handle the army way of life). I met up with T. again at a funeral and we ended up getting married. Funny how things go round to where they should be. Because of our questionable family backgrounds we knew that we were prime candidates for alcoholism so we never drank. But after one particular bad tour I came back a broken down drunk which set the wheels in motion and she started drinking as well. I eventually got help but she couldn't come out out of her spiral, and ended up drinking herself to death. I cannot shake the belief that if I had been stronger that she would still be here.
