Article: PTSD and Special Needs Parents: Calling It Like It Is.

Our kids are not the only ones with Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. There is much being written these days about Mothers of those with Autism and other disabilities having some of the same symptoms as the soldiers who have served in combat. 

Some of us parents know this well and today I found this article and set of resources and thought it was worth sharing with my fellow soldiers.

Yes, I do have PTSD.  I have compounded PTSD as I had to survive the war of earning my adoptive children's love and their intent to push me away and off the stairs.  But I have learned to live with and manage it, and it has given me unique insight into my own children's PTSD.
