We all have PTSD

 

In light of the past few years, as I watch people in my grocery store avoid eye contact, or road rage incidents escalate, I know that we all have some sort of PTSD. This is not a simple headache or toothache. We cannot just “take two pills” and feel cured. And this problem is going to take more than one phone call.  Continue reading Take Two Pills and Call Me, Cupcake (We all have PTSD)
