Feel Safe? Me either!
The CT killings still have my brain in a haze, it was just senseless and awful on every level. I know I'm not alone in still being affected. I was watching the news yesterday and I have to wonder; how did it affect YOU?
Sure, reading through all the Facebook and Twitter timeline feeds, I can see a lot of people are extremely saddened by this, and rightfully so. I watched a Doctor yesterday discuss Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and how those that were at the school will suffer forever...but then he said something else "You can develop PTSD from watching the news".
Is the news responsible for creating fear? Have they crossed the line. I'm sure many will say that it's always been the case but I never heard a doctor openly say it. Typically, this would be more recognized by war veterans but now, the war is on our own doorstep. How fearful are you? Are we all destined to live in fear?
I'm not doctor, nor can I offer any advice but this...turn off the TV, hug your children and loved ones and go out for a walk. We are all affected by this. PTSD is extremely serious, if you feel you need to talk...find help. As someone who suffers from depression, I can say first hand, it can spiral out of control before you know it. Let's band together and put the attention where it needs to be...on the nuts that feel they need to make a statement. Try to have a great.
Tomorrow, I need to get back to writing dumb shit...this serious stuff is too sad.
