Today, I am at Lake Minnetonka. One of my favorite lakes in Minnesota. The sun was barely shining through the clouds.... but hey it was still shining. 🌅
Day nine of my 22 push-up challenge. First go round to honor all those suffering from PTSD and for all those that lost their lives to suicide. Trauma causes PTSD. PTSD can lead to suicide. And suicide is something preventable. I was nominated by @mauffster.
PTSD can develop as survivors of physical and sexual assault, combat war, disasters, and so many other traumatic events.
PTSD is a difficult condition to live with as it can bring forth an ample amount of negative effects such as the inability to sleep, extreme anxiety, and even depression. It is the leading cause for suicide around the world. And PTSD is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.
Lost my beloved brother 14 years ago to suicide from PTSD cause by lifetime of child abuse by the hands of my father. He was only 25 years old. A perfect soul gone to soon
