    I don't know where to start. It's a long story. I was diagnosed with PTSD last year after the birth of our first child. He was born two months prem, severely poorly. We watched him being resuscitated, again and again, sure he was going to die. Luckily, by some God-given miracle he pulled...

But honest to God, I don't think I will ever get past the horrible feeling of being invalidated/dismissed by someone in their Critical Parental Mode. I just go head long into an...
