    Dorothy, You have often referred to a traumatic event but as a relatively new follower of yours I had no idea what it was. PTSD is a nasty thing. I’ve put in a lot of time working to get rid of mine. I consider my own trauma a gift in that living with adversity has helped me to grow stronger both emotionally and in my appreciation of the world around me.

    The subject of Trauma is still not talked about as much as it could be. Thanks for your reposting.

    Let me say first of all, the trauma you suffered has not interfered with the creative area of your brain where expression through language resides. This post was so filled with sensory detail I felt I was there with you during the experience. I think it was a blessing that you did not see it coming; otherwise, you would have tensed up and probably caused more extensive damage.

    Over 10 years ago, I was re-ended by a distracted driver at 45+ mph, and suffered a less traumatic form of injury, but I know the feeling of fear and unsteadiness that precedes regaining equilibrium once again.

    You say “This life circumstance has led me on a three-year journey in search of my health, both mental and physical, and a means of reestablishing some sense of security in the world.” I know you would never choice this circumstance, but you are helping all who read to relate to their own past wounds, giving hope for recovery.
