Good afternoon, Dear Readers!

Did you know that June is National PTSD awareness month?  Neither did I until a little while ago. 

The link below has some good information on the topic:

If you know someone with PTSD or C-PTSD, then please check it out, & help to increase knowledge & erase the stigma of mental illness. 

Also, if you know someone with this disorder, then there are some things you can do to help them:

  • Don’t judge!  We get judged enough from other people- we don’t need judgment from those close to us, too.
  • Ask questions if you don’t understand.
  • Be understanding with us- sometimes we just don’t feel like going somewhere or doing something you want to do. 
  • Remeber, no one wants PTSD or C-PTSD.  If it makes you uncomfortable, just think of how it must be for those of us with it!
