“I jumped the biggest hurdle I thought I never needed help with! It took me 8 years and a semester of grad school to have the courage to talk about PTSD. Thanks to those who listened and supported.”
This was my status 4 years ago. It took me almost 10 years to admit I needed help. I was one of those people who believed in the stigma of mental health. I was stupid. I thought that all the yoga, running and alcohol in the world can heal me. But what I needed was to process the pain, the shame, the guilt and the loss with my therapist. Because of that, here I am today – feeling fulfilled, happy and strong.
It is not too late for anybody. You can still heal.
