As I am sure many of you already know, my mom is going to be the first guest blogger for the site. We had a really good talk about what she was going to write. She thought that she should just give an intro and keep it short because people lose interest after reading a short entry. I told her that this couldn't be further from the truth. There is such a need out there for people to learn more about PTSD and to gain insight in to how to cope with it or deal with it. I told her that she could write 10 pages worth of material and people would read it because the story she is telling is that important to so many people. I know that it will be very good for me and my state of mind to get my mom involved. It has been hard on her to see her only son struggle as much as I have since I returned home from Iraq. I know a lot of you out there have been really searching for insight into how to deal with a loved one who has PTSD. I truly think, from my heart of hearts, that the story that my mom will relate will touch many of you. I hope you find it uplifting and helpful.
As I continue my life with PTSD, I will share my challenges and discoveries on this blog.
