National PTSD Awareness Day (and Month)

Today is the USA annual event, National PTSD Awareness Day. As a PTSD victim myself (and now fully recovered), I wanted to pause to acknowledge those who currently struggle with the disorder.  It is most common among military personnel, but it can strike assault victims and victims of other traumas, too.

The Arthurian Romance With A Funny Title
