52.A PTSD diagnosis, Discharge & Moving home

This week on the Podcast Part 2 of Sarah's story.

In Part 1 Sarah talked about how her last minute decision to join her Husband in a regional location ended up resulting in a diagnosis for her son and uncovering his “mysterious” medical condition. Sarah walked us through the process of becoming recognised as a family with special needs and what happens when they post. We also talked about Sarah’s determination to continue her teaching career in various locations across the country despite the many curve balls her family have been thrown.

This week Sarah will talk us through her husband's sudden breakdown and admission to hospital, how she supported him throughout that time and his PTSD diagnosis. We talk about what happens when you’re suddenly looking at discharge from Defence. How she is able to see the silver lining no matter what situation her family is in and what she’s looking forward to when they post back to their forever home and support network in Queensland.

Today's episode contains discussion of PTSD and Mental Health. If anything comes up for you and you would like to access support there are various options available;
