My name is Davina Lytle and I'm a freelance writer and blogger. I write and blog about living with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and how cannabis helps with my symptoms. Ask me anything.
I’m a freelance writer and blogger. I’m a wife, mother, and grandmother, and I’m also a survivor and advocate of mental illness/health. I’ve been living with a mental illness for most of my life, but I wasn’t diagnosed until 2005 when I was threatened by a man claiming to have a gun. Later that year, I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The diagnosis was devastating for me; as well as for my family and it led to my being cast aside by certain members of my family of origin.
Since that time, I’ve become passionate about mental illness/health. I started writing a book that I’m sure is going to be a great help to other survivors. Plus, I write a weekly blog chronicling what it’s like to live with a mental injury in hopes that I can help end the stigma around mental illness by educating people through my own experiences with PTSD.
