Moving partsPTSD Patrol
June 16, 2019
Today is a hard post for me to put up. We are leaving Florida. After 15 years, hundreds of events and countless veterans coming into our lives, it is time to move back north.
Our daughter moved a few years ago and the last trip we took up there, it finally felt like Christmas for us. I miss our family and all the memories we had, as well as the change in seasons.
The heat and humidity down here is not good for someone with my health filming for hours in the sun most of the year.
That said, my life is like any vehicle with moving parts. There are changes as we all get older and we need to be prepared to stop being comfortable complaining about them.
Each of us know when it is time to change but the trick is actually doing it.
My husband needed to let some people we know about the move before I went public with it. In this video, the move is mentioned, so I figured it was the best time to let readers know why things have been a bit out of whack for a while.
Between getting this house ready for sale and trying to find the area we want to move, it has been really draining my energy.
I promise that I will keep posting as long as I can on both sites and when I cannot, I'll start as soon as possible. After all these years, I won't abandon you now.
OK, that's done.
In this video, Sgt. Dave Matthews and I are again talking about the book For the Love of Jack, His War My Battle.
Living with PTSD sucks! It can beat the crap out of any positive thoughts you have and kill off dreams of what you thought it would be like.
You have a choice. You can stay trapped by it or you can kick it in the teeth and refuse it let it define how you live your life from this point on!
It is hard on families when they do not know what to do, but I can assure you, if you are willing to do the work and learn as much as you can, you can win this battle for those you love too!
Face it. If I can do it, anyone can!
