So while I have spent most of today Researching PTSD and its effects, I have came Across a few great articles that I have wanted to share with The RP Family.

As a new parent that is struggling with PTSD, I have often wondered if my Flashbacks and irritability has effected my Friends and Family in their daily lives and More so my 2 year old Son. This article has answered a lot of the concerns and Frustrations that I have had while trying to deal with PTSD in my daily life.

Good job, brother. This thread might have some insights as well. Before we decide to live with PTS and
"gut it out" we need to be aware of the fact that we aren't just making our own lives miserable. We owe it to our loved ones to seek help. If not for us, for them.

I have often worried that my children will pick up on when I am anxious or affected by my surroundings. I don't want them to worry, but kids are smart and can tell when something isn't right.
