This fancy about me section of my blog is going to be evolving for a while. I’m picky.
Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist.
Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to…..Wait. Wrong show. That’s Michael Knights life, not mine.
The one thing I’m learning as I deal with this shit is that I am not alone—not even close. I am a divorced father of two twin boys who just happens to have PTSD. What you’ll find here is how I am dealing with life. What’s amazed me about sharing my story so far though, is that I have not once gotten the reaction I was expecting. Not once did someone judge me, judge my story, and trash my writings or tell me something negative about what I am going through. The stigma associated with PTSD and other issues I have was more than enough to scare me away from sharing. Instead what I found was support, reassurance and a reminder that some bonds are never broken. Those who I expected to judge me, thanked me. Those who I expected negative comments from came to me and shared their own stories. They told me things that they were afraid to share. Just like I was. I am amazed that my words have helped others and I am thankful that each person has made it that much easier for me to continue to share my story. I still do not believe my story is anything special but I’ll keep telling it of it helps someone else. Even if it is only one person.
Being that this is a blog that deals heavily with PTSD and veterans issues, if you need someone to talk to, please visit WarriorPointe.org.
