What if you had 1,000 panic attacks in one year?
What if you woke up screaming in the night and unable to move?
What if your hands tremored and your ears rang?
What if a flashing light could reduce you to tears?
What would you do to fix it? Would you even know what was wrong with you?
After a life of head trauma, a crazy childhood and years in the military I began presenting with symptoms of what is commonly referred to as PTSD in my late 30s. These symptoms began presenting concurrent with my ongoing study of neurology and specifically traumatic brain injury. Then I started seeing a new theory being presented.
PTSD is TBI.
This is the story of how I developed PTSD/ TBI and what I did about it. It should serve as a cautionary tale of what happens when a person is exposed to repeated head trauma as well as a ray of hope for those living in what can only be described as a nightmare of darkness and fatigue.
In this book you will learn about the 5 Levers Of PTSD, a system I used to determine what I needed to do to finally allow my brain to heal itself. I will outline strategies to apply these principles to your own symptoms in the hope that you may experience some measure of the success I have.
