A poem on the landmarks of battle by Mickey Markoff

Scattered bones on the battlefield,

Strewn across the land,

Maps of fallen soldiers,

Found like the back of the hand.

Piecing together the parts of a puzzle,

Landmarks etched in space,

Echo in the memory,

Entrenched in place.

I recently wrote a piece of the reclassification of PTSD, and these are further thoughts on the subject. Mostly meant to address how important is to be honest with yourself, and speak up if you feel you are not being heard.

Often the reasoning behind changing diagnostic criteria for mental disorders is complex, and sometimes nuanced. To someone unfamiliar with the diagnostic process or the finer details of a disorder, the changes can seem meaningless, pointless, or semantic. Indeed, for some who do understand the finer details, the same can still be true. Any alterations in the DSM are often…

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or ‘PTSD’ means many things to many people. Put simply, it is considered a disorder which occurs in persons who have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. It often occurs in survivors of war, natural disasters, serious accidents, and other traumatic events. Symptoms range from person to person, but can include anxiety, nightmares, re-experiencing of trauma, and other symptoms.

In the few months I’ve been using Medium, I have consistently been moved by the diversity of writers and the types of content on the platform. There truly is something for everyone. Whether you are a veteran of war or a human rights lawyer, you can find an outlet and an audience here.

One of the many things intriguing about the platform is its openness to user contribution. Every user has the opportunity to either reach out to an existing publication, or to start their own. I have chosen to do both, given my interests in a variety of topics.
