Well written. I can attest to one thing here, PTSD does not have a switch, time does not heal this wound, and its very hard to want to be around your self with or without other people. However, people are quick to judge, quick to label, and even quicker to discard a person who they believe is broken beyond repair. Just some food for thought, carry on.
Today, I would like to tell you a bit about the Memory Monster you can encounter.
It’s called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
This particular monster will haunt you after you experience something very traumatic.
First of all, let’s see what the specialists can tell us about this monster:
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that may develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, serious injury, witnessing the death of a loved one, losing someone close or the threat of death. The diagnosis may be given when a group of symptoms such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event continue for more than a month after the traumatic event.
That just sucks! You already have experienced something awful and afterwards you have to battle this monster as well!
