Living in the "Shaky" place

A friend of mine posted this on her blog.  It's a blog from another preemie mother and describes her experience with PTSD after the birth of her preemie.

Now, my PTSD is no where near as extreme as hers.  Thankfully.  However, it does give insight into the trauma one can and does experience with a preemie.

I like how she says:
"I'm still swimming -- but I'm not drowning. And though I know once I hit shore I'll be pretty far away from where I'm started, I feel OK  about that. I'm not the same person I was before and I don't think, if given a choice, I would want to be."

I'm still swimming---but I'm not drowning.
