Peer support subsequent to trauma contributes to full recovery

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- including complex trauma (cPTSD) -- is debilitating, breaking down the body through anxiety and stress, and it poses a significant suicide risk in sufferers. MyPTSD seeks to help and inform those who are directly or indirectly affected by these conditions through peer-to-peer support and educational resources.

      Does screaming help?

        There have been times that screaming has helped but never for me when there are others around. I would hike off into the woods and scream. And then I'd stomp around for a while. It allowed me mind to clear.

        Now, Angel and the kids say that I don't know when I'm screaming. Any more, the stress gets me before I know it...

        Glad you said Hey!

        Thanks Bloom, After his stroke, it was down hill all of the way. He's no longer in pain and is in a better place now, so I have to count it as a win.
