Trauma happens to most of us at some point during our lives. Yet as you may have learned from my recent Mental Health site article about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, severe trauma can trigger chronic symptoms that can make it difficult to cope. This week, I'm honored to present a special article from guest author Michelle Taylor about the subjective experience of PTSD.
"PTSD from a Patient's View"
An inside look at what PTSD feels like from a patient's point of view.
If you're interested in PTSD, I hope you'll also check out a recent magazine article based on an interview with me. The article gives insight into my personal passion for helping families face the challenges of combat PTSD and provides links to more information. It's available at http://www.eujacksonville.com/story2.php?storyid=1078.
I appreciate and rely on your feedback, so feel free to email me any time. And please pass this message along to family and friends who might benefit from the resources at BellaOnline. Thanks!
