PTSD Quote a Quote

To quote Aphrodite Matsakis, Ph.D.:

When it comes to your mind, trauma means the wounding of your emotions, your spirit, your will to live, your beliefs about your self and the world, your dignity and sense of security.  Think of PTSD this way:  No matter how strong your leg bones, if enough force is applied they will break.  Given the proper care, they can also heal.  And so can you.
