I am the sky, and so are you

From the Department of … Share. by Dave Klaus, reprinted with permission I was on such a roll the last several months, and then the fires came and the air that tasted like fear and destruction and people living in tents in the parking lot of the fairgrounds, it tasted like standing around a raging bonfire and you can’t find a spot where the smoke isn’t blowing right into your face no matter how many times you move.

PTSD: ‘After multiple combat deployments I had no idea what I felt.’

20 Diagnostic Signs That You’re Suffering From “Soul Loss” . Article by Lissa Rankin

by Gonzalo Salinas I’m extremely grateful to Dr. Lissa Rankin. I think she saved me by helping me understand what was happening in my life. I was training for a triathlon, and I wasn’t feeling good. My body couldn’t take it anymore and when I went to three different doctors, they each ran some tests, and the result was the same: Everything was all right. But I wasn’t feeling good.
