I looked out over the crowd in Abilene, a mixture of both veterans and nonmilitary personnel. And I said Abilene What About Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Self Care?
The room was quiet. They where here to learn about Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in others, particularly in people who had experienced sexual trauma, they didn’t think they would come to Abilene and hear something on the topic of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Self Care.
I explained to folks in Abilene very simple that you can not care for people with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and not practice Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Self Care.
If you are not going to be good to you, who is?
Treat yourself like someone you love
