PTSD

I’m not one to write reviews. But I have to say your podcast was very interesting. Someone that understands what PTSD is. It may not be the same traumas but it’s definitely a mental illness that takes us down when we do go through a trauma.
Just hearing others’ words makes me feel not alone.
Thank you for being willing to share your story to help others. That is my hope one day that I can share mine if I can just reach one to help them it will be worth all that I went through.
The battle of the mind is one of the hardest battles I have ever faught .And hearing you talk helps me remember the little victories I had along the way.
My counselor gave me a poem about the hole in the sidewalk.
Autobiography in Five Short Chapters I.
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
II.
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I still don't see it. I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place. It isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.
III.
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it there, I still fall in.
It's habit. It's my fault. I know where I am. I get out immediately.
IV.
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
V.
I walk down a different street.

I still fall in a hole some times but I’m a lot quicker getting out. And most times I’ve learned to walk around.
I remember I kept fallen in the hole. But I kept climbing out.Now I know how to go around the holes. I’ve learned that I can take another road so that I don’t run into the same traumas that were daily in my life.
Thank you what a superb podcast.
Look forward to the rest.

So good!

I only listened to the intro and positive episode and loved it. I could relate so much to what they said. Can’t wait to listen to more. Great podcast.
