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.
