Tomorrow, June 27th, is National PTSD Awareness Day. You can learn more about what you can do to help raise awareness here.
There are, unfortunately, so many of us living with PTSD. Sometimes we don’t know it, or we do but can’t access resources we need.
If someone tells you that they don’t like certain things and are very reserved about why, please be patient with them. It could be PTSD related and you could be triggering a bad memory. Be kind and ask them what things you can avoid doing or what you can do to help them feel safer. Oftentimes, it’s just being around, caring, and being aware of triggers.
One thing you can do is wear teal (one of my favorite colors btw) in solidarity tomorrow.
