This week has been a bad mental week for me personally. So, I decided to write a post with prompts to help me and maybe someone reading this.
Let's start with what PTSD is. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop in individuals who have experienced a traumatic event or events. It often leads to distressing symptoms that interfere with a person's daily life.
