Simply hard. I want to speak out. - June 7th 2014, 09:51 AM

Uncomfortable to write, but at heart is a heavy burden. Just want speak out to people who have been away from these events may not have heard of them. Can you tell us how to live.
I live in Ukraine. We recently held a revolution (22.10.2013-22.02.2014). I took it involved. At first it was quite peaceful. But from mid-January began active clashes with police. January 22 I got wounded by a grenade injured leg. When me brought to the doctors there was fear. I saw many maimed people. Someone had cut off limbs, some without eyes... In my eyes he died a young man.
Compared to other my injuries were mild, and I quickly returned to the barricades. It has been months. It was hard, cold, but stayed. On February 18, we went to gait to Parliament. There us met many police were armed with automatic weapons and rifles. Us began to beat. According police were bandits who followed by them and beat injured bats.
From detachment in which I was living remained only 17 people. Over the next 3 days police together with bandits just killed unarmed people on the street. We have for self-defense only shields made ​​of wood and helmets. But they are not protected.
To square, where we lived drove a water cannon. Us began to overclock, we threw stones and incendiary mixture in response. The wounded were in the House of Trade Unions, but when the police took it by storm, then set it on fire, and the wounded were burned alive there.
After 3 days of fierce battles we won. President Yanukovych ran from Ukraine. But killing more than 200 people. From these events has been over 4 months, but I still can not sleep well. Very often cause to be dreamed killing people, rivers of blood, coffins... Very hard psychologically. Constantly have thought about the fact that I live, but my friends died there... I do not know how to go on living with this.

Hey Alexandr,
I really am sorry you have had to go through all of this. I cannot imagine how traumatizing it must have been for you. It sounds really horrid.
I must say, you are a brave guy to have gone through all of this until now.
It is common to have nightmares after having gone through situations like yours. But, they can be stopped. Is there anyone you can talk to about this. I suggest you see a therapist, if it is possible. Seeing a therapist will work out best for you and things will be fine again.
I am sorry to hear about your friends loss. I know it is hard for you, right now. But getting the right help, will work out in your benefit.
Stay strong
We all are here for you...
Message me if you want someone to talk to

Thank you. I try to hold on, not to think about everything that happened. Unfortunately in the city with no one to talk to about it, because most of the people taking part in these events.
Here are some videos of these events:
