Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression or PTSD/anxiety is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room. PTSD especially is managed, rather than cured.

PTSD, anx & depress: Medication MAY play a role in helping you w/your symptoms but you raise the probability of getting better a great deal if you get some individual therapy such as from a clinical psychologist. PTSD responds well to clinical hypnosis. See www.asch.net for licensed referrals. Peace and good health.
