A couple weeks ago I had a friend look over my post before publishing and make suggestions. She made some really great suggestions and I appreciated her feedback. I made some of the changes she suggested and some I did not. Looking through her notes really got me to thinking about what I want this blog to look like and how I want to convey the message that I have to share.
I remember in the early years of my diagnosis feeling so alone. My family tried to be there for me, but they really were not sure how to help. I had no one that I could talk to about what was going on and how I felt. At that time I did not know anyone else with PTSD.
For now, I just want to talk to my readers. I just want to have a chat with you every week about what is going on in my life and how I am doing. What it is like living with everything that goes along with PTSD and mental illness. But also about the good stuff. I love my life. Sometimes I deal with some really crappy stuff, but it is not the main focus. I work hard to take care of myself so that I can have a fulfilling life and enjoy my husband and children.
So, for now, I am just going to share about me in my posts.
I am just going to talk to you about how things are going. If anyone has any questions or just needs to talk, please comment or look me up on FB or Instagram.
There ARE others dealing with this. I understand feeling alone, but you are not. There are so many of us dealing with mental illness and we are starting to speak up. We are starting to share our lives, the good, the bad, the ugly. No one should have to go through this stuff alone.
