What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Anyway? — 25 Comments

  1. I’ve experienced PTSD. It is really hard to manage at times. Love you, Janeane.

  2. Thank you for praying for us. I am convinced that prayer is responsible for some miraculous recoveries and outcomes.

  3. I’m glad you are addressing this head on! It’s important for people to write things down and talk to a therapist (I have gone and discovered what I thought I was over, I still had pent up negative feelings about!) It’s important to release negative energy, fears and anxiety early on. I will continue to pray for you & your family!

  4. Thank you for praying for us. I am convinced that is what has helped us recover physically as remarkably as we have. The rest will come in time.

  5. It’s going to take time for ALL of the healing to happen. I’m grateful that you understand that, and know that your knowledge of PTSD will help you to deal with it a little better. You and your girls (your whole family, actually), went through a terrifying experience, and can not be expected to just “bounce back” and be normal right away. I will continue to pray for y’all.

  6. First and foremost, we give thanks to God that you and your children are OK! Just sharing your story is a major step in the healing process. It sounds like you are on your way. There, is no rush….just take your time. As, he has already shown you, God has got your back! No-one or nothing can touch what he has in store for you. Now, enjoy your babies!

  7. Janeane, allow yourself time to heal as you need it. It may seem slow, it may seem like nothing is happening but allow yourself to heal as you need.

  8. Thanks for your kind words. I know that I am not really strong, but am leaning on my Christian faith to pull me through. Rest assured, if I need help, I will call on someone like your husband for help. It is a nice safety net to know there is help out there if we need it.

  9. I think researching and finding out that reactions to traumatic events can be hard is helping me with me. Thanks for that advice.

  10. Thanks for your kind words. BTW, LOVE the name of your blog. Everytime I see it, I smile.

  11. I am thanful we are doing as well as we are. Things could have been so much worse, so I will not complain!

  12. Thank you for your kind words and for the sacrifice your family makes as a military family so that families like mine can be together at home.

  13. I am so sorry that you had to go through all that! It’s great to see how strong you are by being proactive in dealing with this traumatic experience. My husband is a psychologist and I know he would be impressed that you have educated yourself as well as others about this serious but often unrecognized condition. Wishing you and your family strength and healing.

  14. PTSD is very real. I can only imagine how you are feeling right now but I know how strong you have been. Make sure you take care of Janeane, too.

  15. You have been through so much Janeane! Glad that you and your children can begin healing now. Thank you for shedding some light on PTSD…

  16. This is such a POWERFUL post and it is so important to recognize the emotions and struggles you may experience as a result of your trauma. Thinking of you – xo.

  17. I was so sorry to hear about the accident, but so thankful that you all are as OK as can be expected. Thanks for posting about PTSD and the importance of not being ashamed of the anxiety you might feel.

  18. As a military spouse, I know how real PTSD can be. Your experience wasn’t emotionally that different than what our soldiers are experiencing on the battlefield. Raising awareness is “half the battle” (pardon the pun). Bless you and yours as you recover from this.

  19. My mom and sister had a similar experience moons ago…my sister’s leg was in a cast because a driver was in a rush … her injuries were not as severe as your daughter’s so I cannot imagine the difference in trauma experienced. I’m just so happy that you all ended up ok…. Z will heal …you all will heal over time and ill resist the urge to damage ford f150s.

  20. I am so sorry about what you all have been through recently. Even if it’s not PTSD the memories will always be there and for that I am also sorry! Sending Hugs!

  21. Thank you for your kind words. I am confident that in time all will be restored. Our family is blessed and highly favored.

  22. I’m just really sad that this happened to you and your children. I hope that in time all of you and your families emotional and physical wounds will fully heal.
