This past week, I also discovered PTSD Jedi, a site curated by a survivor of the 2004 tsunami. Sam shares his raw and powerful experience with trauma.
To keep him here: Suicide and mental illness in 'modern' America in the Harvard Review. Author brings up important questions about the stigma associated with mental illness and PTSD, but what resonated with me the most was her discussion of the "Pick yourself up and brush yourself off" mentality so prevalent when it comes to mental illness. Excerpt: "I pretended to be fine and cried alone at night." So many of us have been there, yet we're alone.
On a lighter- or maybe heavier- note, Food 52's article on fried toast will change the way I do breakfast.
