I am wondering how long does it take to "heal". After being attacked in February I started seeing a therapist in May. I have done everything the therapist told me to do including starting meds. What I want to know is when will I stop being afraid. When will I be my normal again? Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur were hard because I was surrounded by people in shule and they were to close for comfort. Every time I think I am feeling myself again something happens and I feel bad again. Has anyone experienced this before.

sruth,
In my experience, healing is independent of time. I meet people who have flashbacks and nightmares for decades, and through EMDR they are healed in minutes to hours. Of course, EMDR does not work 100% of the time, but it is my first line of treatment for PTSD. My experience is that meds don't work effectively because your problem is NOT biological. My recommendation is to go on the EMDR.com website and find a trained clinician near you. I have been using EMDR in my practice since 2002 and have seen remarkable results.
Hatzlacha!
