About the Author

My world of PTSD began in my childhood and has continued throughout my adult life. I suffered abuse as a child and also as the wife of a Gulf War Veteran who himself suffers from PTSD. Therefore, I have PTSD from my childhood, events suffered as an adult, and secondary PTSD from being married to a veteran. The abuse has been verbal, emotional, mental and physical. It has literally altered my standard of living as I suffer from depression which I learned several years ago is the result of PTSD trauma. I am learning coping skills as I deal with the many symptoms of PTSD. I live in North Carolina where I enjoy spending time with family and friends, taking long walks, and reading.
