    Ask a foreigner

    Lol two times at the same time. The 24-hour system is better once you get used to it. It saves me from accidentally setting an alarm to the wrong a.m. or p.m. if you know what I mean (i.e. I didn't pay enough attention to the a.m. or p.m. part). They speak a mess of French and Hindi? Oh, you...

    Sufferer Ready or Not

    Hello all. I haven't attempted to join a PTSD forum / online community for some time now. I was quickly put off by previous attempts because it seemed like I didn't fit in at all. Unfortunately, whether I fit in or not this time, I am part of the PTSD community, like it or not lol. I haven't...
