Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
My daughter spent 114 days in the NICU. As she is approaches 2 years old, I’m still suffering the after-effects. I launched my blog during NICU Awareness month, so I’ve focused heavily on my experience during those 114 days. Looking back at all the photos and recounting what I went to has dredged up bucketfuls of “yuck.” In my past life, I was a data and research driven person. I still read studies, research outcomes and the like when I’m interested in something. Recently, I read studies about acute stress disorder (ASD) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), specifically for parents in the NICU. Through all the studies I found myself asking:
Do I have PTSD? Is this what has been going on all this time?
