For me, ptsd is a nice way of abbreviating trauma. Kind of tidies it up and makes it a bit more ‘digestable’. For the on looker anyway.
I am either short and sharp and very straight to the point, or silent. Those two ends of the pendulum are the essence of me really; and trying to find some ‘balance’. That pendulum has been swinging since I was little. It’s the different spectrums and specifics that I can hear and smell and feel; that in the end make my mind and heart race, and then go numb; if I’m lucky.
