It seems as if the stigma of PTSD is still being passed on to the point where veterans still do not understand it.
You are limited by what you imagine to be true instead of encouraged by what you imagine to be possible.

Stress comes after surviving the shock of what happened.
Disorder comes when your mind and body are trying to adjust afterwards.

You chose the destination and how you get there.
