We attended our DIL father's funeral last Saturday. He was a vet and I was not prepared at all for the 21 gun salute. First noise and I jumped so much I nearly fell out of my chair. Second noise and I jumped again. Third time I jumped and began to cry. Thankfully, it took me only a few minutes to "recover".

I do not like ptsd.

I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.

OH, I'm so sorry. Totally understand that. Does everyone have that sort of startle response with PTSD? I'm beginning to think so.

I had a recent PTSD moment myself that I posted towards the end of my "gloomy day" thread. I'm doing a little better today, finally. Had a day off from work and drove 2-1/2 hours to another city to spend the day with some old girlfriends. Wow, didn't realize how much that would help.

Hey Mary,

I'm sorry that you were triggered. I hate when stuff like that happens.
