PENSACOLA–At the eighth annual AHERO Warrior Hook-Up Pensacola Beach, participants shared their struggles with PTSD and other health issues in a testimonial journal. With the permission of those who transcribed their struggles, we are sharing some of the journal entries in recognition of Suicide Awareness Month. Readers can comment and maybe add to the story.
“I have PTSD because sexual trauma is not easy to see. I dealt with shame for 25 years thinking it was my fault. Clinton Cox Residence gave me the chance to finally face my past.”
If you or someone you know is in an emergency, call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 immediately.
