Day One

This blog is a year in my life of coping with PTSD, a window, if you will, into my world. Hopefully, this window will provide those of you struggling with PTSD a view that will help alleviate the feeling that you are alone in this. For family members or loved ones, this blog can give you insight into some of the challenges we face. Though I have to give this one caution. PTSD is very unique in how it manifests itself with each person. My triggers are not necessarily another person’s triggers. Everyone’s triggers and symptoms vary widely. So, with that understanding, my experience on this blog is all my own.

I should be going to bed. Sleep is one of my biggest challenges. I often have nightmares, and/or have trouble falling asleep. Getting enough sleep, and getting restful sleep is a daily challenge. We’ll see how it goes. Good night.
