Gladly, here are some quotations gotten from Mental health source(s) that further help in promoting awareness about the struggles in dealing with Mental illness.
Several articles have been published here, explaining issues relating to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but, the definition would be far from perfection if we fail to let PTSD survivors express their ordeal for others, even for those presently struggling with trauma.
Below are some quotations willingly shared by some survivors:
- PTSD is like having a wound that is always open and that certain situation can possibly make worse. You don’t want to get back into the game because you feel so vulnerable. You feel your psyche being drained by social situations, you feel your soul being dimmed and your spirit being lost. Emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually if your lucky can just have intense feelings. Other results they may feel like they are dead. You usually feel weak and like a coward because you can’t function and when you do, you feel like a hurt animal waiting to be picked off for good.

- A ‘fracture’ in your experience of life, caused by a traumatic event. This fracture is caused in your mind, by you (and no one else). It’s a response for attempting to cope with what happened. But unfortunately, it’s an ill-informed response. And it’s one that makes you feel like something is being done ‘to you’ instead of what’s really going on, which is that your own mind is causing you to re-live your trauma over and over again.
