Blogging 101

I’ve been writing this blog for a while now, but I’m not real computer literate, so it’s kind of a stab in the dark for me to make it better.  I work with disabled American Veterans.  It’s a job I love and I’m am blown away every day by the courage of the men and women I serve.  Blogging is a way to connect with others who live with PTSD- post traumatic stress disorder.  I hope the blog shows what’s common with PTSD as well as some ways to help live and cope with it.

I try to draw from my own experience with PTSD to help others.  I am living comfortably most of the time now, although in the past it’s been a real nightmare.  I guess my message is that PTSD can be controlled even if it’s never “cured.”  Happiness is possible.  Interacting with others without being hypervigilant is also possible.

To all the Veterans who stepped forward to serve our country, I’d like to say Thank You.  I know that’s not enough, but it is heartfelt.
