The only thing I ever wanted was a family.
And I had it.
And then I lost it.
When I got sick.
And, as frustrating and scary -- as painful -- as it is to say that, it's also that simple.
I got sick.
Would you blame me for (also) getting Cancer?
Then why would you blame me for getting PTSD?
For reacting to what happened to me.
As a child.
I wish I was stronger.
That I had been stronger.
But, maybe, I was just human.
Something terrible happened to me when I was a child.
And caught up to me when I was an adult.
And I got sick.
