How to deal with post-traumatic stress

FOLLOWING my recent article regarding PTSD, I was sent this email:   Hi Charlotte, Thank you for your article.

Fearless fashionistas

by Carl Pattison  WHEN did it become fashionable to stop being interested in fashion? Who tells you when to stop making a statement with your clothes?
