National PTSD Awareness Day

National PTSD Awareness Day is observed annually on June 27. This is a day to recognize the effects post-traumatic stress has on the lives of those affected by it.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has a profound effect on the lives of those who suffer from it. The statistics alone are staggering, but can only tell a portion of the story. The trauma and anxiety associated with PTSD is a constant burden, inseparable from the sufferer. It was once a condition that was attributed only to returning combat veterans, but more and more the condition is diagnosed in those who have experienced violent crime or lived through catastrophic events. According to PTSD United, 20% of adults in the United States who have experienced a traumatic event suffer from PTSD

It's also National Handshake Day. If possible, shake hands with someone you don't know or don't know very well

It's also National Ice Cream Cake Day. Why not order one or go down and pick one up. You can always shake hands with the person who sells it to you.

Enjoy.
