We Understand: A Note To The PTSD Caregiver

Dear PTSD Caregiver,

You likely know this – but symptoms of PTSD can appear anywhere from one month to years after a traumatizing event occurs. These symptoms are debilitating. We understand that your warrior may no longer seem like the person you once knew; it is very difficult to see them in such a dark place. The truth is... witnessing this takes a toll on you, as well. PTSD can impact marriages, children, and families in unimaginable ways. This is not your fault. This is not your warrior's fault. We understand. It's okay.
