"I Just Work Here" presents: PTDD: Post Traumatic Darren Disorder

Poor Javiera. And hey, the real thing, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) really isn't a joking matter, but it made a fitting title.

A question I hadn't anticipated cropped up after last week's post: Did I choose to do a story on domestic violence because I myself have been a victim of it in the past? The answer, thankfully, is no. I have been truly blessed to only have ever dated wonderful young men who have treated me with absolute respect for me, both physically and emotionally. This story line is in no way a reflection of my own firsthand experiences, but rather based on my observations of friends who have been in this situation. I've had some friends go through this unfortunate experience, and unfortunately witnessed it several times in college, so the issue has become a rather important one to me.
