Not really, no. PTSD is a serious condition which tends to respond well to talk therapy and medicine. Avoiding professional treatment is not the way to go.

If you happen to be a veteran, veteran support groups can be VERY helpful at the local vet centers.

In brief: PTSD

Support groups can help but alone they are inadequate.
Please see a licensed mental health counselor who specializes in ptsd.

Even though the road is long and hard, medication and psychotherapy is the best approach, and if possible, with a psychoanalyst who can help with the recollection of trauma but at a tolerable level of intensity.
