Default First Sanity Score

I just took the Sanity quiz for the first time. My score is 87 which is good, I think.

However, it lists a few things that I should pay attention to. Most of them aren't surprising given that I'm still grieving my husband's death last June.

But one recommendation really took me by surprise.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): People with scores similar to yours often have traits associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a disorder characterized by reliving a suffered trauma through flashbacks, nightmares or other recollections of the event.
My husband had PTSD and so does my best friend. But me? Sure, the death of my spouse has been an awful thing and I'm struggling with it. But given what I know about PTSD, I just can't see myself as having it.

Who knows. Maybe I'm in denial. Or maybe I shouldn't give a quiz to much credit.

I guess I'll find out soon. Because I'm having a very hard time right now with grief, even after almost a year, I have an appointment with a counselor next week. I think I'm going to ask for a full evaluation.
