Added a PTSD Page to S∂ Top Bar

I’m not always very consistent with tagging my PTSD and related posts, so I wrote a page compiling them, finally. It took a while to make the decision (like, weeks) because it’s rather an ugly part of my life, and I keep wondering if having it up on the top bar will make me less likely to recover or something, but then again I forget to look at it a lot of the time.

And some of the articles so compiled are informative for others, particularly “Post-Traumatic Disorder in Fiction.”

So there it is.

  1. i just wanted to say that your posts aren’t just helpful to writers (though, that, yes, too), but also have been helpful to me, as a fellow sufferer of PTSD, who is just starting in her journey to functionality and mental health. so many of the things you say are things i identify with, even though my traumas are not quite the same as yours, i feel a swell of kinship towards you, someone i’ve never met, simply because we have this thing in common. i’m so sorry for the things that have happened to you and i hope that you are able to find peace from the demons of your past. bless you for talking about it, you probably will never know how many people you are bringing hope and help to. it is always good to know that we are not alone. even if it is in a sort of impossible misery that we are not alone in. *hug*

  2. alisa,

    Thank you. And I’m very glad my writings help you and others. I tend myself to feel alone with PTSD, because it’s not that common these days (or at least, I hope not; PTSD really is something I wouldn’t wish upon anybody), thus I write.

    Good wishes on your journey towards healing. *hugs back*

  3. I just read your posts about PTSD and I just wanted to say thank you.
    As a fellow sufferer (I’m having a good year, though) this was incredibly incredibly empowering to read.

    Fiction is my therapy since I stopped going to my shrink and reading your analysis was fantastic. I could never articulate it so well.

    May you continue to heal. All of us.

    *hugs* if that’s all right?

  4. Mel,

    I’m glad the series is helpful! And thank you.

    Hugs are always okay with me (a strange quirk of mine, because I’m anathema to almost every other kind of touch, no matter how platonic, but hugs—I’m really okay with them).

    *hugs back*
