This website is a place for people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to come to, find out more about the illness and seek help and friendship from others that are affected by PTSD. I have established this resource as I found that when I was on my journey to recovery I wanted somewhere I could go to get information on PTSD to help me in my journey to wellness. Most importantly, I wanted to read and hear about others’ stories of their journey through PTSD. In addition, I wanted to be able to talk to others with PTSD, as suffering alone is not the way to recovery. “PTSD—or any mental illness—does not belong to mental health professionals, but to the people who live with it and are in recovery from it.”[i] To find out about my journey go to Bill’s story.
