Ep: 55 Living with PTSD
Mar 5th, 2019 by dearmilfamily at 7:00 am

PTSD is a topic you often hear about in the military community. But it's often in the context of one traumatizing event. In this episode, I explore the topic of PTSD with one veteran but also how you can get re-traumatized or have many little events can affect you. We do talk about workplace sexual harassment and instances of gun violence, so be advised before listening with young children or if you are triggered by those topics.

Annette is a military spouse, mother to two teenagers (one being in college) and veteran who served in the Army for over seventeen years as a Chemical officer including a deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. She retired and decided to trade in her boots for converse sneakers to be able to make up for lost time with her now teenagers. Since her retirement she has PCSd from Fort Polk, LA to Fairfax , VA to support her husbands military career. Her blog A Wild Ride Called Life incorporates stories from her post military life in which she shares how she lives life with being a mom suffering from PTSD, anxiety and depression. Along with writing her blogs she also writes for other social media sources and does a podcast. You can check out more about Annette on Instagram, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Medium, The Mighty, ITunes and Podbean.
