Version 2.0 because this is the second blog I’ve started today.
I’m 29 years old, married, mother of one beautiful daughter and I’ve just been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and post natal depression (PND).
I’ve had a few hours to mull over my diagnosis. It’s been a long time coming, I’ve known for months, but to hear the words come out of my doctor’s mouth were certainly a shock.
I’ve decided to blog about it, more to help me get my feelings out there. I’ve certainly learned in recent months that bottling up the pain has been most detrimental to me. So if you happen to find yourself reading my blog, then “hello”. I hope one day you are not on the receiving end of PTSD or PND, but maybe my story will help you or someone you know.
