What Is PTSD?

HI YA'ALL! I RECENTLY DISCOVERED this cool looking infographic while perusing the almighty Internet. I thought I'd share it. Click here for more information.

Do you agree with this? Did you learn anything new? What do you think?
I also wanted to share a sneak peak at a very cool anthology I'm blessed to be a part of. Courage of the Soul: Inspiring Stories of Overcoming Life's Everyday Challenges, is part of The Wise Woman Collection published by Wise Owl Publishers. It will be available soon. I'll keep you posted. Isn't the cover nice?

As always,


  1. Grace, That is a very powerful infographic . What strikes me is how much information is packed in here and yet it is easy to read. It seems like a very effective way to get a large amount of information across.

    The anthology looks lovely. Congratulations for your part in it!

  2. Love the cover...I think I have been lucky not to have experienced PTSD although I have been through extreme stress...looking forward to the book and your entry.

  3. Yes, and I love the title "Courage of the Soul." I agree on the infographic containing a lot of info and yet being easy to read. Have many people, family and friends, serving in the middle east and PTSD is so prevalent, very much on my heart.

  4. Grace, thank you for sharing this infographic. It was very informative and easy to navigate.

    Congratualtions on being part of the Courage of the Soul anthology! You are doing so well with your writing. I think it's wonderful!

  5. I'm glad to see that the PTSD covered more than war related incidents. I believe that PTSD can result from ongoing childhood abuse and abuse from the hand of a husband or wife. All the signs are there - exposure, helplessness, truama - and many of the symptoms. It is good to bring this to light.

  6. Dear Grace...congratulations on being featured in the Courage of Soul Anthology. Love the name and would love to read it too. I have heard of PTSD in the context of slavery, and now war but I am sure it extends way beyond those situations. I do believe that counseling is very important in the treatment of this condition. Wishing you a beautiful new week! xx

  7. The cover is very nice. Is that the real color? Congratulations! And thanks for the infographic. We can never know too much about PTSD.
