Canada Post Traumatic Stress Disorder | The Bravest Thing I’ve Ever Done

Posted by Paul Smith | Mar 21, 2017 | Canada Post Traumatic Stress Disorder | 0 |

More often than not, most family and friends don’t understand what Post Traumatic Stress Disorder aka PTSD sufferers go through. However, just like Rob below, not everyone lacks empathy or understanding. Without the outside support and strength from people like Rob, a PTSD sufferer might feel more alone than they already do.

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

Dear Rob,

To answer your question from last week, 

The bravest thing I’ve ever done is to continue my life when I’ve wanted to die.

Anyway, thanks for the Dolly Parton tickets. She was great.

Love, Paul
