Done, not sure if my comment went thru..visiting from SITS sharefest! Here is my comment..Thank you for sharing your account. I have a very special person in my life who is an Iraq Vet and lives with PTSD unbeknownst to most ppl just like in your situation. It is a complicated understanding, but manageable with treatment and love and support.

"...Once you quit feeding an adrenaline situation it takes about 20 minutes for the adrenaline to start to clear your system. My brain and instinct fight each other for control. And they each take their turn winning..."

This!

Loved your post, Robin. I am happy you're speaking up about PTSD. You have a way of writing that can explain to others so they will understand. That, my friend, is a gift.

Just read your post over at Real Intent. Thank you for patiently explaining PTSD. Now I know what it is and how it can affect a person.

"PTSD means I went through something horrible and survived. It means I am strong. And the fact that most people don’t know about it means it doesn’t control me."
The most perfectly helpful and reassuring words I read today. Thank you.
