  • For everyone who lives with PTSD.

    I have lived with PTSD for 15+ years. I want ALL of you to know that it does get better. I have found that talking with someone and verbally expressing your fears is the greatest way to make them(fears,anxiety)shrink.The more you talk the smaller they get. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy also works wonders!...
