Be social with us
Family members of people with PTSD can suffer from secondary stress and experience some of the same debilitating effects as PTSD.
The best thing we can do is show our children that the family is a team, and we are all going to do this together, even if it is hard.
Even though it’s very difficult to be the one that is leaving and moving away, by comparison it seems that it is much harder to be the one who is left.
