I suggest you try harder to get your STR's.   What have you done so far to obtain them?  VA will help you obtain them, and, sometimes they succeed.

Ive done nothing to obtain them.  Its just that i didnt have inservice treatment or anything related to my disability inservice so theres nothing on there about them.  Will they still matter?

So a little more background.  did you serve in combat?  Is your ptsd related to the war/s?  Are you rated for anything?

Broncovet is correct you need to get your treatment records, as you would be surprised what was put in there.  There could be an opinion given from a doctor or someone that saw you (this is their job).  To start this fight you need to have those records or you are fighting blindfolded with both hands tied behind your back.

I did not serve in combat and my ptsd isnt related to a war.  Its related to something that happened in training.  Im currently not rated fot anything.  I just need to know will not having my records affect my chances of getting approved and is there anything else i can give them to make up for my records, because i dont know how to obtain my records.

You will need your military records  if you had an event in service that was the cause or related to your PTSD  , Also you need a diagnose for PTSD from the VA. the  Diagnosis needs to come from a VA MH Doc

You can use Buddy letters that was there with you that witness the event  date and location and the event its self.

As always you need documentation of these 3 things for service connection:

1.  Current diagnosis.  

2.  In service event or aggravation.  If you are claiming PTSD this means you need documentation of a "stressor".  Yes, a buddy from training could write a letter saying that he saw you

_____________________________ in service.   Your mother was unlikely to see this event.  However, she could testify that, after service you were "changed", but you will still need documentation of an event in service.  If you apply, the VA "may" be able to obtain your records,

3.  Nexus, or doctors opinion that number 1 and number 2, above, are related.
