Our expert says:
Actually, there's no such specific thing as a "nervous breakdown" --- like "crisis" its a general description of a situation in which you feel temporarily unable to cope well. What one needs is to see a good local shrink for a proper assessment and diagnosis, as only then can the right treatment be tried. Unfortunately, sometimes in crisis you get started on one, then another med, and accumulate a pile of meds which might not be best suited to your actual needs.
What you have been going through is obviously unpleasant, but not what would lead to PTSD. A proper diagnosis, and treatmend based on that, should help things to get back to normal before long. Crying is what we do when we feel distressed. Some medications are like alcohol in that they may make us more likely to cry, some don't.
