I always thought that PTSD was just for war too, but that is not true. It can happen whenever there is a traumatic event in your life.
I learned of husband's PA a few months ago too. I feel the same things you are. I have been in IC since it happened. My therapist helped me realize I suffered from PTSD from a traumatic event when I was a teenager, and since I have never totally dealt with that event, I can have triggers that send me back to that point in my life. H's PA has definitely done this.
Hope that is helpful...I would really look into it if I were you. I thought it was pretty silly until I did some research and now it makes a lot more sense to me.
