This image is incredibly powerful. Like you said it expresses what words can’t.
Thank you, Jeffrey. Wasn’t sure at first if it’s a bit too graphic, but it really was the best way I could think of to explain what it’s like to have flashbacks.
This is an amazing drawing. I’ve never suffered from flashbacks, but looking at this picture I can imagine how frightening they must be. Do you have them very often? I don’t know how you find the strength to cope with this. /////M

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of
the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each
other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
