Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) stigma is alive and well.
If you have PTSD, you’ve probably heard someone tell you to “Just Get Over It.”
Maybe it was a well-meaning friend or family member who was frightened by your suicidal ideations. Or maybe it was a less well-meaning acquaintance, like the moron who recently commented telling me to, “Grow up and take responsibility for [my] life.”
Whether the statement comes from a place of love or PTSD Stigma, it doesn’t make sense.
