Great post, Susan. I also experienced PSTD and it took a long time to differentiate between my grief and trauma. Studies show that around 20 percent of widow(er)s meet criteria for PSTD, although this estimate seems low. Hospital patients, especially those who've been in ICUs, also experience higher rates of trauma. It's not a condition I'd wish on anyone. Thanks for sharing.
