PTSD: a mental illness?

This Pinterest poster made me uncomfortable, so I used it.

“Trauma disorders are mental illnesses that are caused by traumatic experiences or significant stress.”

My two cents: I believe serious childhood abuse is a significant mental illness.

Many harsh connotations for people with mental illnesses.

Hell, I have always been different than all the rest, why change now.

There is an internal war going on, battles are intermittent but intense.

Hard to ignore triggers firing, hypervigilance and intrusive thoughts.

It’s like warring with yourself, any wound harms both participants.

See how irrational PTSD can be.

Does admitting we have a mental illness, help us?
