Artist's Description

I thought the war would never end. And perhaps it never did

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma.
Today i will write on a different note – why i have done this picture ? my husband is an army veteran, and like many of them suffers from PTSD – it is a everyday struggle for him and a family ( me) – war experience can trigger flashbacks , nightmares and anxiety .
The idea behind this photo was one visit to a doctor ( family one ) and as he doesn’t know how to handle , or help for that matter –he said ,, PTSD is only in your head’’- and that made us really angry , now times changed – people are
more aware that the people return from combat suffers from PTSD .
Not only soldiers suffer from it , also civilians – people like you and me – who went thru a trauma .
So doing this pictures i would love to raise an awareness – that not all wounds are visible…
