Met Trine, love and PTSD

Met Trine, the love of my life until her tragic death in 2015, and in 2011 trained her (with professional teachers) the service dog Akito to help her find security and comfort despite severe PTSD from her past. It is incredible what a person can do, no matter how scared, if the right resources can be put into place to help them function – a service dog, electric cargo bike, understanding psychiatrists and lots of patience made Trine show her brilliance to the world many times. She did however insist on fighting the system that had scared her, and although I tried to both help and shield her, that fight together with demons from her past became her undoing.
