Thinking of Suicide? Read This First

Suicidal thoughts are an unbelievably normal part of PTSD. Normal doesn't mean that they are pleasant; it just means that we can expect this with PTSD - and we need to talk about it because it is the norm and not the exception. 

Listen, I am not trying to read you. I’ve experienced this myself and I’ve literally heard this a thousand times with clients. 

But if you’re feeling this way right now, put everything away and read this: Suicide: the Forever Decision by Paul G. Quinnett, PhD. It’s available for free in PDF and there are several places to download the PDF for free. Dr. Quinnett was brilliant, and I highly recommend it. It saved my life.

You are important - your life is important. If you are looking for a sign, here it is: please reach out.

Also, let's remember our friends at the Veterans Crisis Line. They are there to help and they care. Call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1 or text 838255. You can also call 911 or go straight to the emergency room. 

Bottom line is that once we're better, we can reach out to get the help we need. 

We want to hear from you and value your feedback and ideas! Reach out on our Community Facebook Page!


If you believe change is possible, you want to change, and you are willing to do the work, you absolutely CAN get your life back.”
