Undiagnosed to Unstoppable

It’s been YEARS in the making. My journey back from PTSD.
 
Far from easy, and at times quite dark and hopeless, I persisted just off the beaten path of life (seemingly more like a darkened wood, than even a path) filled with anxiety, depression, anger, triggers, loneliness, grief, nightmares, and more, to a life of recovery.
 
The beginnings of a deprogrammed mind, I’d hoped.
 
Conventional methods of merely coping weren’t working for me, and I was losing any perspective in the chance I’d ever find #normal again. Hell, I’d have even taken a slightly less #abnormal most days…

 

“I didn’t look this hopeful on October 23, 2015, I can assure you of that. It took time, but it would have been so much less time had I been able to easily access the tools I’ve since found and have used in my own recovery.” (click here, or on my pic for more on my story)
With the urging of a select few, and introductions to more holistic means of working through my Post Traumatic Stress, I was able to seek out more. Able to find information and learn as I found. Able to push through some of the darkest days in search of more and more information, and in search of a way out.
 
Meditation. Mindfulness of other forms. Ho’oponopono. Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Studying various counseling methods, and especially those with a slant toward those of us with PTS. Nutritional balance through my incredibly intuitive friend and wellness guide, Neil Burchill of Insight Health & Wellness. Ongoing Reiki through Reiki Master and extraordinary friend Candace at Shifting Light Studio. Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and more.
While I can’t say there aren’t still challenging days, they’re much less severe, and much less frequent for me. I’m better and better every day, and with no meds (** and hey, if meds are helping you hold it together, I’m certainly not saying you should stop…not without the consent of your primary healthcare provider **).
 
And now I’m ready to not only share more of my story, but I’m ready to help you write a positive new story of your own.
 
Watch the video below. Click on the link for the more detailed explanation and story (including my offer for more near the end of the ‘3 Secrets‘ video), and please let others around you know about this video, and my work.
 
If you’re battling your own demons, I may be able to help.
 
If it’s someone close to you, please make sure they see this. Sit and watch it with them, if you have to.

And please, if they’re fans of Facebook, please have them check out our ‘safe space’, our Closed PTSDeprogrammed Group, and they can also follow my ‘every day’ here
I may not any longer work with lights and sirens, but I’m hopeful I can now focus on saving the lives of those who save others.
 
Be well, and I’ll hope to see you on the inside.
