PTSD: Amnesia is a distressing symptom to many PTSD sufferers. If you’re having ongoing symptoms of PTSD, depression, or other signs of a mental health issue, please seek an evaluation with a mental health provider. There are ways to cope with the illness using meds and therapy. Treatment would likely benefit both your PTSD as well as your focus on health issues as well. Good luck
