I was one year sober from a horrific 12-year drug addiction, struggling to find peace with my past and find a way to live in the present. I was 31 years old, anxious and depressed, couldn't hold down a job, and so out of touch with myself. But I was willing to try anything to find some peace.
What I found and received was so much more than that.
I felt like I had ruined my life because of destructive choices I had made and I was sure I had ruined my two daughters as well.
The workshop assisted me in healing many of these wounds that I carried deep inside my heart and soul. The workshop taught me I am enough and we are all on our own journey
I live with PTSD. There are many nights of isolation, insomnia, night terrors, anger, feeling invisible, ect. I have also experienced sharing the trauma and have heard feedback like, "stop being a victim," "just get over it," "change your mind" and so on.
Thank you Tammy Goldthorpe. You were the first to see me wearing the invisible PTSD. I see the world with new eyes.
