In casual conversation today, I referred to the post on PTSD and divorce, which made me take a look back and read through the comments from that day. Ironically it has been two years since that post was published and today it continues to be the most clicked on this site!
So I thought we should take another look at what started that historical ( in my blog life) day long conversation. Click to view the original post. Then take some time to read through the comment thread. Comments are posted most recent on top so you will have to scroll down to start at the beginning.
On October 24, 2013 at 12:15 am (Eastern Standard Time) Rebecca left the comment that would spark an all day conversation. I am always very excited to wake up and see a new comment, when I read it though, I wasn’t so happy. I felt like it was the beginning of an attack on what my purpose of the blog was. I reresponded quickly at first but then as the day went on and the comments were pouring in from my readers, I decided just to sit back and read what was happening, then process it all later that night. At which point I would do my research and formulate a brilliant reply, and I think I did just that.
On October 23, 2013 at 10:54 pm (Eastern Standard Time) I politely and gratefully responded to Rebecca and having had done my homework, I felt empowered, smart, witty, and most of all determined to stand up for what I believed was something worth fighting for.
I would love to get another conversation going, as this topic is one that is very close to my heart and I know there are many others out there who could use our help. Feel free to post comments on this post or the original and know that sharing even just a piece of your story, may help even just one person. I look forward to the conversation.
Below you will find Rebecca’s first comment and my last. Take a peak and take time to read the comments in-between on the Does PTSD after divorce exist page.
