PTSD and Nursing - The experience of wounded healers

Publish date: Thursday, December 04, 2014

“When it’s one of those nights when you can’t sleep or whatever it is, that’s when the images come to you.

You always think, ‘why can’t I forget those things?’ You wonder. You don’t know why. Are they there so you can help someone else? I don’t know.

All I know is that they’re stuck in my head and I wish I could get rid of them, but I don’t know how to do that or if I even could if I tried.”
