I've a new respect for the expressions God willing &the river don't rise; come hell or highwater; when it rains it pours and misery loves company. But damn if I'm going to experience PTSD everytime it rains.
Thing is, you never know until the time comes what you will or won't deal with, what you will or won't do and you damn sure don't know how durable you might be, or not.
And not being able to imagine what it's like is not the same as not being able to understand just because you haven't gone through it.
