“I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.” Carl Jung
From my personal, non-clinical perspective, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
is what happens when trauma is not addressed. It remains stuck in your energy field and in your physical body.
PTSD is an uninvited guest and has a personality of its own.
It is best to fully accept its presence no matter how difficult or counter-productive that seems.
Trauma and PTSD effect every aspect of your life: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. Trauma implants itself in your brain and can wreak endless havoc.
PTSD can be illusive and can’t be measured. Therefore is often misdiagnosed or simply not diagnosed at all.
PTSD can stop you from moving forward in life; it can interfere with setting goals and inhibit you from achieving them.
For 25 years, my PTSD wasn’t diagnosed and I was told by a healthcare practitioner that the extreme trauma I was experiencing, was insignificant. That added insult to injury.
Self-isolation is often a sign of PTSD. You may block people out of your life or feel lost inside yourself as you live in quiet desperation.
Another face of PTSD is being overly social as a way to mask the discomfort within, knowingly or unknowingly.
PTSD is a complex subject and I have just scratched the surface.
As someone who has lived and breathed and transformed PTSD, I serve as a catalyst for profound insight and change.
Do not to embark on this journey alone; believe me, I tried and failed.
I am here to guide you through and beyond your suffering.
