The kind of trauma it would take to actually break your mind is unimaginable to me.[/quote]
Minds can be remarkably fragile… you never know what the last straw will be.
I dated a detective in our police department… rape, murder, abuse, all day every day. He was able to leave that at work, but what screwed up his mind (or had the triggers to), were his loved ones and their roles in his life.
How absolutely unbearable it must be for anyone with PTSD. Not being able to escape the monsters in your mind even after you’ve left the field.
