Without Anger

Without Anger

written by: Angel Edwards


Without anger could I have survived

Anger is sometimes a means of survival
With PTSD any slight irritation can evoke rage
The test is to be able to turn the anger off
or calm the rage down to a dull simmer of just slight annoyance
Life becomes so melodramatic and hardly ever in the positive spectrum of drama
experiencing trauma endlessly
repetitively relentlessly
callous indifference
cavalier dismissive
Cold world

With PTSD one always feels threatened
by impending danger
ever on guard
treading tiptoe
