    No thankfully I do not. It sounds truly horrific and my sympathy goes out to anyone who does suffer from it.

    It's a bltch! In the past it kept me locked down to the house. Watched a combat rescue video tonight posted to Facebook tonight and it triggered some anxiety. My gf doesn't understand it and is no help. I just left the house.

    Feel for you medic, any sort of stress/anxiety is a bitch.







    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body... but rather to skid in sideways, totally
    worn out, shouting
    Holy ****... What a ride!!"

    I actually do suffer from something similar and pysch said he suspected ptsd

    I took some bad drugs when a kid, procyclodine SP* well they were my friends pill for his schizophrenia, I took some and it triggered a two day long artificial schizophrenic attack

    I was seeing people chasing me with guns, terrified of life I jumped out of my second floor windows and feel through the conservatory. I got up ran to a strangers house banging on the door crying for help that I was being chased and was going to die.

    I was taken away and locked up in a hospital, I escaped and something happened again similar and I nearly died.

    No one was chasing me, there was no one there but because of what I took it was as real to me.

    It still takes my breath away when I think of it and it terrifies me, if I was in a block of flats 50 floors up I'd have jumped out the window to escape and died

    I'm not as bad as I was, this happened 17 years ago now.

    I just laughed when they said ptsd, it did cause me serious problems for many years

    My best friend is currently serving life imprisonment in Iraq for shooting 2 men dead in self defence
    He has suffered for years with PTSD
    After fighting in Kosovo at the age of 16 and later tours of Afghanistan
    The things he saw will haunt him for the rest of his life and is a truly sad illness and with all this on his medical files g4s still failed to do proper checks and employed him.

    Not me personally but I have a close friend who is totally shredded since he left the army loud bangs and lively environments make him so nervous you can physically see the stress in his face. I consider myself fairly cold and hard mentally but some of the stuff he told from tours in Afghan made me sick let alone actually being there. Thoughts really do go out to people who suffer like this. 
     
    On a side note I have another two friends who some how switch off to it and are the total reverse say the miss the adrenaline and the buzz of it, amazing how different folks react.
