Reminder: Best Tweets for Trauma and PTSD Survivors will return in January. Meanwhile, the year is winding down, but in some ways the stress level is rising: shopping, parties, trips, expectations. Need to take a mental break from it all for a few minutes? Below you’ll find my favorite items gleaned from my Twitter account this week. Lots of linky goodness here! Enjoy!
