    So I have PTSD and screaming is a trigger for me. They are like well you should just get over what causes your PTSD then screaming and other things won't bither you so much. It's not that simple to just get over what happened. It takes time.

    "you should just get over it" seems like a general response from a lot of people who don't understand, that getting over it isn't something that can just happen. What you're going through is just as much of a disease as cancer is. You can't just get over cancer...
