• Not being able to celebrate the fourth of July like everyone else

  • That feeling when you get home to your pet and are able to hug it


  • When people want to constantly bring up what happened to you, and you’re not ready to relive it

  • Not being able to be intimate like you used to

  • Feeling like your personality is slowly going away

  • Being sick and tired of people using ‘PTSD’ as a label. No one who has it is the same as another

  • When someone downplays what it means to have PTSD. It is a real and serious disease
