        I don’t know a good deal about PTSD but I’m finding more and more as I age I feel as though I’ve been traumatized by not only my illnesses, brushes with death because of them, and procedures to assess or treat them.    I’ve had Crohn’s for 1/2 my life now.  Even through 3 major surgeries I chose to always rake it all in stride or over power my health issues.  Now whereby I think back what I’ve been through I get this feeling which to me just represents traumatic feelings that now ruse to the surface.  Anyone else dealing with chronic illnesses and flares?
