So I’ve started the task of writing a book about my journey with PTSD. I’ve got the basic layout in my head, but it’s proving to be quite a challenge. One of my symptoms, if that’s what it’s called, is that I find it very hard to concentrate, or recall recent information. Therefore, when I go back to work on the book I don’t really remember where I left off or even what my train of thought was.
I find myself having to go back and re-read everything to try to regain the thought process I was on. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. At times I just have to give up for a short time and try again later. It’s frustrating enough that I’m tempted to just quit. But, I don’t want to do that. I really believe that I need to accomplish this work. It may take me longer than I hoped because of the memory hurdle.
I guess nothing worth doing is easy. So on I go into the fray.
