  1. I won’t pretend that I understand PTSD, as I have not experienced it firsthand.

    But as someone who suffers from chronic anxiety, I can relate to some of its symptoms, and I have nothing but respect for those who are able to cope with such terrible experiences.

    • Thank you so much for your comment Max.
      Anxiety is really a pain for sure! I am lucky that I only have anxiety in a mild form, but other symptoms like nightmares and flashbacks try their very best to make up for that! lol…
      Stay strong!
      Lots of love
      Patty

    • Thank you for your comment Ann!

  3. Patty – I have PTSD . It is a result of not expressing emotions and feeling all the years caring for my son Jason. I developed anxiety this year and was sent for therapy. It was explained to me I basically “overflowed my cup” and I desperately needed release. Therapy helped me release the inner soul but will suffer from anxiety as a result of my mental trauma.

    • I am so sorry that you have to suffer from PTSD as well Jude.
      I am so glad that therapy has given you some release! PTSD is something we carry with us all our lives, but as long as you can cope with it, you can live with it.
      Your paintings are a beautiful way of dealing with your feelings and emotions.
      Stay strong!
      Love & Hugz ❤

      It’s still hard for me to show my real feelings, but if I can help others, it’s much easier for me to do so.
