Canada Post Traumatic Stress Disorder | 7 Years 3 Minutes

Posted by Paul Smith | Mar 12, 2017 | Canada Post Traumatic Stress Disorder | 0 |

Many people that suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder aka PTSD find it very difficult for their friends and loved ones to truly understand what they’re going through. This lack of understanding leads to a lack of empathy when PTSD sufferers need those closest to them to help be solid support when they need it. Without that important outside support and strength, a PTSD might feel more alone than they already did and fall further.

For friends and family of those with PTSD, be empathetic and learn how to truly listen. Having an ear goes a long way.

Dear Dr. Tim,

I’ve spent the last 7 years trying to forget 3 minutes of my life.

And now thanks to you, I’ve realized that I’ll never forget those 3 minutes.

Instead, you’ve given me hope with an abundance of coping strategies.

And I just wanted to say thanks.

Also, I must cancel our next session as I’m going to the Las Vegas Porn Convention aka the AVN Awards.

Sorry about the short notice.

Love, Paul
