When I left mental illness behind, I should have been happy, settled, content.
But I experienced PTSD.
I have PTSD because things happened to me when I was ill, as I could not protect myself.
I took few precautions, and could not predict what people were likely to do.
I now live with PTSD, and I live with it every day.
I never get a break.
At night I have nightmares.
I am glad that I defeated mental illness, but I am sad that I have to live with PTSD.
