‘Tis the Season

This holiday poem written by Alexis Rose, a trauma survivor and memoirist who also blogs about PTSD, is a beautiful expression of the powerful and conflicting emotions I have about this season. As a Christian, I love the Christmas season. As a survivor of extreme trauma, some of the worst of which occurred during the month of December, I am also looking forward to the holidays being over.

Thank you, Alexis, for putting this conflict into words.
