When PTSD Calls .....

We know more about PTSD now than we ever did, before it never even had a name. Sadly, because of our soldiers , we now know this is real. It isn't just people who have gone to war that suffers though and that is the part that still needs to  be understood. I suffer and it can  turn a lovely day into a living hell in the blink of an eye.
11 years ago on Sunday past  my life changed forever. Now I try to avoid  certain words, situations, people, all to try and stop triggers but  even then I can be sitting fine one minute and the next I can't breath. People say the events that caused this is over, it's in the past so let it go. With PTSD the event/events plays like groundhog day at times  and very much real, it isn't the past, it is the present  and as terrifying as  the day it happened. 
So when I hide away, it might not be that my real life is busy  - it might be like it was last weekend, with the nightmares, panic attacks, not sleeping etc...
