PTSD Patrol healing on a lonely road

Being alone can be very depressing. It can be even more so when your job has you away from family and friends. Sometimes you can be lonely even with you are with other people. A police officer can be lonely even sitting next to their partner. Firefighters can be lonely when they are at the station sitting at a table with the others. Truckers are lonely, military members can be lonely and the list goes on.

Right now there are a lot of people who are lonely but when they see people still going out and getting together in groups, it can be even worse. The thing is, you need to remember that even when they are with a lot of other people, some are still lonely.

I have talked to a lot of people over the years, who still lived with family and had friends, but felt all alone. If you have PTSD, you could also feel alone even with others around you. That is why today there are two feature videos. The first is Journey Faithfully and Glen Campbell Wichita Lineman to give you some comfort knowing that there are others who are alone too.

I don't know how many other ways I can put this but if you know what PTSD is and understand that there is nothing to be ashamed of, especially as a survivor, you will open up to others because you know you can explain it to them. It also makes it easier to ask for help. You'll be amazed by how others will help you and stand by you. 

#BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from PTSD

Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You're on my mind
Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sendin' all my love
Along the wire
They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line
It's been you and me
And lovin' a music man
Ain't always what it's supposed to be
Oh girl you stand by me
I'm forever yours, faithfully
Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns
To make us smile
Through space and time
Always another show
Wondering where I am
Lost without you
And being apart ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy
Of rediscovering you
Oh girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours, faithfully
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Faithfully, I'm still yours
I'm forever yours
Ever yours, faithfully

I am a lineman for the county 
And I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wire, 
I can hear you through the whine
And the Wichita lineman is still on the line
I know I need a small vacation 
But it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain
And I need you more than want you, 
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman is still on the line
And I need you more than want you, 
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman is still on the line
