I watched the most life-changing film, “Man Down.” Not only veterans get PTSD I have had it since I was not yet 5 years old, when my father shot himself in the head–in front of me–on Christmas Day. Through abusive men, cancer, and near-fatal car accidents, trauma has returned repeatedly. Jesus help veterans and all of us who have PTSD. Woman Down.
You can read all about my journey with PTSD in my 3 nonfiction books which I call my “Survival Series.” Start with “Crossing the Chemo Room,” then go through “I Saw You in the Moon.” Realize that I do not tell the whole truth until “Fire and Ice.”
May our 2018 be a year less affected by trauma. Sadly, I cannot help but feel that everyone on Earth is in danger of PTSD the way things are headed. Like my Selah fantasy character, may we overcome!
