One of the frustrations of PTSD is after a wonderful experience, a crash often follows close on or a trigger seems 10 times more annoying when you felt on top of the world to slam down again. On these rough days I like to remember the quote I saw from several sources. (Not sure who is the original speaker, one page suggested Vinny Genovesi)
On particularly rough days when I’m sure I can’t possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100%, and that’s really good.
I’m still here….I made through 100% of my awful horrible days. I also made it through my super fantastic days.
Doing a search for the origin of this quote, I found another web page that listed 20 encouraging quotes.

Ruth, I love that quote, and its so very true. We made it through the roughest of days. We’re alive. xxx
