Just read a message from another female Veteran who suffers from PTSD/suicidal thoughts like I do. She stated that she looked forward to my Instagram posts thanked me for sharing them.
I am in tears. I am so glad that I am able to reach complete strangers and show them that they are not alone.
So when my kids ask me why I post stuff almost daily, this is why.
We are not crazy. We don’t have “issues”. We are suffering and deal with life in a different way. This is why I do what I do.
I decided to share my life and my story to help others know that they are not alone.
You can do this. You can survive this. It is not easy. It’s a daily struggle.
Never in a million years would I have thought that I would open myself up like this but I am glad that I did.
Thank you for those who don’t judge and for supporting me.
