So, I had another opportunity to talk about my life as the spouse of a service member with PTSD in public. I don't know why, but it's always terrifying to me to do this. For some reason the idea that someone is ACTUALLY on the other side of what I say, not just that I am perceiving someone to be there like on this blog.
But I did go on there and talk to them openly about what our life is like and how we try to cope. I don't know that I was all that helpful. I felt like I wasn't. But, I also don't look at this blog as being all that helpful. I don't offer advice or help or resources per se, I'm simply telling you what our life looks like behind closed doors. I hope someone out there is reading and saying, "Wow! I'm normal, this is normal!" But maybe not. I don't know that what I'm feeling is all that "normal" but much of it is common and much of it is not what is out there publicly.
So I hope that I was helpful to someone out there in radio land, but I don't know that I was.
Either way, the other people on the show were amazing and offered some phenomenal insights and resources to check out. Please take a listen and know that you are not alone and there are places to get help, spouse or service member alike.
