I have been debating on whether or not to share my current status here because I try to keep it as positive as possible, and don’t want to disappoint anyone by coming across as weak.
On the advice of a very dear, strong friend – I will be honest. I am a bit of a wreck.
Since the New York Times story about the canned PTSD studies went to print I’ve been fighting off feelings of guilt and shame.
As more articles are published I keep seeing my name and the words childhood sexual abuse, and it is difficult. Quite unexpected.
Although I played no part in Dr. Neumeister’s unfortunate issues, and contributed no unique information – I feel guilt for even speaking to the NYT at all when approached.
I am stronger than this. Better than this.
