Only woke up from nightmares twice last night. I’m getting better… Last week I attended a private press screening of footage from the Hamas atrocities. It was 47 minutes of footage recorded by Hamas themselves and captured on CCTV. You can read an account of it here.
You shouldn’t be alone at all right now. It truly sound like PTSD. So glad you are getting help. Thank you for sharing your struggle.
I am sorry for your pain. Thank you for writing this. Your work is important.
I have so much to say...
Can’t say on an open forum.
Everything you are experiencing is natural.
I spent 15 months in combat zone in Afg.
I have loads of experience if you wanna confidential chat. Not in a pervy way-in an human to human understanding way. You’re not alone (in theory).
This coming from a woman who worked directly with troops AND local afghan men. I have stories.
Cheers! Hang in there. You’re doing important work, just don’t burn out.
