I emerged from the destruction

with a psychiatric injury called hypervigilance.

Broken ———- Broken ——— (me last year, sporting a “comfort beard”)

Hypervigilance means that I notice connections between any and every situation, and during the acute stage, an alarming number of POTENTIAL situations!

    • Thanks, Susan. Nick had gone through a terrible ordeal some years back when some guys attacked him and drove a screw driver into his head.
