Once upon a time not so long ago the British Army denied there was a significant problem with PTSD or mental health! These are not unsurprising stats! Tip of iceberg….
Who is Liu Xia?
I live like a plant in the day
With no voice and no human interaction
Or like a corpse at night…
I curl into a ball
As somebody knocks at the door
My neck starts to stiffen
But I cannot leave…
I speak to myself too solitary
I have not the right to speak, to speak loudly!
I live like a plant
I lie like a corpse!

Don’t give up there is only one of you!
