I am not an artist, nor am I much of a poet. I am, however a survivor with a penchant for creative expression. I’ve had PTSD since September 2014, and I am still on a winding road to recovery. While I am not a professional artist or poet, I have found that it is vital to express what I am going through. Therapists and family may encourage people with PTSD to talk about what happened. Sometimes we write about it, in diaries, blogs, essays, or books. A lot of the time though, what people with PTSD go through is hard to describe, but easier to show.

This is my way of sharing my story and this part of my life. I welcome you to share any thoughts or stories related to PTSD or mental health as well.
