Today I’m back behind the camera, picking up where Gary, my husband, and I left off last spring when we were answering some of the questions posed to us here at Messy Marriage, including one on PTSD.
When a spouse suffers from PTSD due to combat or past traumas, it can cause extreme emotional fallout for the person who’s being asked to open up and share feelings. In essence it feels like a “dam will burst” if too much emotion is shared. So I endeavor to share my thoughts on how to navigate this treacherous tightrope.
You’ll probably also notice something a bit odd about this video. I’m not going to give it away, but instead let you be the judge of just what might be going on in my latest presentation. 😉
Click on the short video (4 minutes) below and come back here to tell me what you think on the subject.
What would you add to the advice I’ve given this husband?
How has sharing your emotions with your spouse been a challenge in your marriage?
