We want you to stay. Here’s what our National PTSD Service Association wants anyone with PTSD to know:
1. “You are enough.”
“You are enough! You are so enough it’s wonderful and amazing how enough you are. No one on earth has ever been born like you and you were born to be alive at this time. Your gift is special and needed. You are still here because you are a fighter. You will always come out stronger and a winner. I’m going to say it again. You are enough! We love you.
2. “You matter.”
Words can seem hollow and empty, but from someone who’s had a traumatic brain injury, I know your pain is real. I see you. I care. You matter. You are not a burden, and you deserve every breath you take.
3. “Find an outlet to express what you’re feeling.”
As an individual living with a military veteran, the arts expressed through our work with the service dogs are our lifeline —ignoring our inner critic, trusting our intuition, following a path to fun. Our dogs and training allows us a safe outlet to express our emotions and foster healing. My own intuitive creative process in gardening, birding and oil painting challenges me too.
Stay in the therapy that created a healing space.
