Update, 19mar2015—OK, i'm still here. That's huge.

I get to write, another privilege.

I know how to breathe, wow. I am blessed.


Inside PTSD started out as a smattering of 2 or 3 essays about my own experiences inside post traumatic stress disorder, and then suddenly all i wanted to do was write as fast as possible. so i did, and there are about 30 sections, half of them published herein.


in 1981, 2 months after graduating from high school and 3 weeks before heading to university, i got robbed hard while working at a bank, guns shoved in my face and death

This has turned into a series of articles. So be it.

Read them... well, read them gently.
