Tana Mundkowsky Struggle With PTSD
Tana suffers from complex PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), and has been quite open about it. Her case is rare in that in involves not just a single traumatic events, but multiple.
She has reportedly contemplated suicide on numerous occasions. It was particularly bad in 2015, when her husband had to miss some live concerts in order to be with her.
The track ‘Rut’ which is contained in The Killers 2017 album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ was inspired by Tana’s struggles with PTSD.
“Usually I feel protective of her but I decided to take it head on. So ‘Rut’ is about her submitting to it. That doesn’t mean that she’s gonna let it beat her, but rather that she’s gonna finally acknowledge that it’s there and promise to break this cycle,” Brandon noted.
