Welcome to my blog!
My name is Elle and I am a survivor, I have PTSD.
PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress disorder, is a type of anxiety disorder that can occur after experiencing an emotional trauma.
This blog is a way for me to simply be myself. To be Elle.
I was diagnosed with PTSD rather quickly. It’s been a long process. And in the end I don’t want what happened to redefine me. I simply want to be me.
I am happily married. I have children and pets.
