    1. Thank you for this post. Living with Complex PTSD on campus is really challenging. I am quite surprised that we actually use the same apps to cope. I never thought of being triggered on campus as a form of exposure therapy, having a new set of eyes always helps. Thank you for such a wonderful post. Headspace and daylio are the best apps ever!

    2. I love this! I don’t have PTSD but I do cope with depression, and these all look really really useful! I know they’re for you, but it’s amazing that you put something like this out for other people to use so that they could feel better too!
