    I am a single mom to a little girl and love being outdoors and living a simple life. I met my fiance and knew from the beginning that his need for a very simple life was not by choice but for survival and self-preservation. I recently asked him if he had PTSD because of some episodes we had that I didn't understand. He confirmed he has PTSD and has had anxiety since he was 5 when multiple trauma events occurred and some continued until he was in his teens. I majored in social & behavioral sciences in college so I am aware of terms like enabling, care giver, trauma, safety zone, and others related to mental/emotion/psychological illnesses. I also know that each PTSD sufferer feels alone and that they feel they will always live a life of panic/anxiety. In a normal state, I know my fiance trusts me and knows that I am here holding his hand. However, when he is having a flashback or is living through a trigger, he can't even remember my name.
    I am loving and supporting him, and would like to help him learn some grounding techniques and be able to reach out to him when he is having panic/anxiety attacks without making it worse. He is a strong man and I know this is a long road. Together I know he can be happier where his trauma is an after thought because the skills he can learn to work through panic/anxiety is second nature.
