So I'm kind of at a loss and not sure where to turn anymore.

Back in February I had a little bout with some stuff in the hospital that nearly killed me. Spent a few days in ICU, another 9 in the regular recovery room. The first month or so after that were rough, had a lot of bad memories come back while I was in the hospital, and then on top of that just the anxiety and stress of what went on just got to me for that first month or so. Had a lot of trouble sleeping, certain smells that reminded me of the hospital stay would have me break out into a full blown panic attack.

Fast forward to now, I thought I had gotten past most of it, but the sleepless nights, the anxiety issues, and the memories of crap is starting to creep back in. It's just so exhausting to feel this way, just want it to be over at some point.

Geeze bro, that sounds hard.  I don't know what to tell you but this sounds serious enough where you might want to talk to a professional about this.

Try and stay positive dude you have made it through some tough stuff by the sounds of it.

Not sleeping properly makes everything seem worse and as BaconRage said it might be worth getting some professional help just to get you through this stage.

I have found any form of exercise can help with the sleep situation and might make you feel a little better mentally.

Sounds rough, man. Big props to you making it as far as you did solo. I'd agree with BaconRage. Time to talk to a pro. It's worth a shot.

It's going some what better.

Spent Monday in the ER for the same issues that got me stuck in the hospital before, but no surgery this time, woo hoo!

They gave me two days quarters so I've had time to get away from work and relax and rest, and it helped. Got some promising news about some shit my outgoing platoon sgt was trying to get me in trouble with, so that's a little less stress.

Thanks guys. Phone Post

I'm in the Army

I'm doing a little better. Finally got in to see the therapist and I've had three appointments so far. I've never been too sure about the whole therapist talking thing, but it's nice to sit down and talk to someone.

Been seeing behavorial health once a week, I go in a week to see the doc about getting some meds.

I kind of had a win/lose situation pop up twice.  I ended with kidney stones this past week and the week before.  The ended up with a 4 day weekend and then 5 days off this past weekend, had a lot of time to just sit around and relax.

 

Thanks for all the support guys, it means a lot.
