Sometimes I get to have sleepovers in Mommy and Daddy’s bed! I love having sleepovers because my Daddy’s home. I missed him.
But since Daddy got home, he wakes up in the middle of the night breathing heavily and he is all sweaty.
On the way to school, I asked Mommy what’s wrong with Daddy and she tells me not to worry. Daddy just had a bad dream.
Why does Daddy have bad dreams every night?
Tonight my Daddy woke up again and this time he was crying. I don’t like seeing daddy sad.
My Mommy and Daddy looked at each other the same way they do when they’re making an important decision. Not the kind of important decision like chocolate or vanilla ice cream, the kind where no one leaves with sprinkles.
Mommy says Daddy has PTSD from all the scary things he saw in the war. Now, when he remembers them he starts to get stressed and panicked.
Daddy has something called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
