Are you always 'walking on eggshells'? Feel like nothing you do is right. Are you the victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse? Are you in a relationship with someone who suffers from PTSD? Then this book is a must read for you. There is hope!
So many spouses of PTSD sufferers have the false belief that nobody can understand what they are going through. Believe me when I say, you are not alone. There are literally thousands of victims just like you. Facing the same issues everyday that you are facing.
This book is written for you, the spouse, to offer hope by giving you detailed knowledge of PTSD and Secondary PTSD and also offer you coping mechanisms for living in a world of PTSD.
DaviniaSandia Park, NMAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Not a Christian perspective - Very negativeJune 27, 2013DaviniaSandia Park, NMAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1First, this book is about two spouses - both with PTSD. So it is not exactly helpful for a spouse of someone with PTSD. Second, it is just a depressing story of a woman with PTSD who cannot handle her husband with PTSD and she ends up divorcing him. There are no words of wisdom and nothing learned. There are no references to God or how to gain strength through our savior. I have learned more about how to love my husband and work through problems and bring joy back into our lives in the last year through the bible than this book has to offer. If anything, I think this book would hurt someone trying to love and work with a spouse with PTSD. Not worth the paper it's printed on.

There are helpful tips on how to talk to children about it and I appreciate that the author put herself out there. But the whole time I was reading it, it just didn't sit well with me. It's not that I don't get PTSD, I am married to a veteran and I've also studied psychology, but some of the suggestions made just didn't seem right.
If you're looking for a book that lets you know you're not alone, this does that. But that's really all that I felt it did.
