You know the thing that just gets me so messed up about PTSD? Why I feel like people don’t understand?

PTSD doesn’t care if you had a great day yesterday.

PTSD doesn’t care if you won a damn Nobel Peace Prize yesterday.

PTSD doesn’t 👏🏽 care 👏🏽

It has no fucks.
So imagine my shock when I woke up this morning, and I have to fight.

And I mean FIGHT.

Because there is NO FUCKING WAY I am going to let this shit rule my life today.

Excuse me for cursing, told myself I wasn’t gonna, but....
I am so MOTHERFUCKING proud of myself.

The culmination of my accomplishments happened yesterday.

And I am not, I REPEAT, AM NOT going to let PTSD ruin that for me today.

With absolutely no respect, please, I sincerely ask you to FUCK OFF PTSD.

I just want my demons to GO!
Just, aghhhhhh, this is so frustrating.

I’m just out here trying to live my best life, and I am SO GODDAMN TIRED OF WAKING UP EVERY DAY, EVERY EVERY DAY, EVERY SINGLE FUCKING DAY feeling like I’m fighting for my life!!

And when I say FIGHTING, that is no joke.
And then why I feel like people don’t understand- “You’ve been doing so good!” Or “You had a great day yesterday.”

No one has said these things to me, but I do think that I’ll get some of these comments, every time I bring it up.

It’s just... it’s so hard.
There are no rules for this DISEASE. Because that’s what it is.

If you have PTSD, I absolutely admire the fuck out of you.

It takes a VERY special and STRONG person to be able to survive and carry on with this disease.

We are one of the strongest kinds of people.
