Childhood PTSD: The Soul-Taker | Gentry Fry (info in description)

Thank you, David Goggins! Your book “Can’t Hurt Me” (link down below) saved me from suicide! I owe you one, sir. Call on me anytime. 👊🏼🔥 TOP weight: 456lbs CURRENT weight: 356lbs (as of 7/5/19) GOAL: 200lbs So, 156 more pounds to lose. When I reach my goal within 1-year, I will have lost 256 pounds. I will then film my skin removal surgery & donate my excess skin to help burn survivors via medical research involving live-donor skin-grafts. So, I’m not losing weight … I’m growing skin! And in the process, I hope to raise awareness for childhood PTSD and its devastating effects on adulthood. I believe this is an area of much-needed further research, as I hypothesize the majority (but not all) of adult mental illness is directly linked to perpetually-unaddressed childhood trauma, which in many cases “runs the show” behind the scenes, often rendering other psychiatric modalities (i.e., medication mono-therapy) impotent. But, if I can just save ONE fat, hopeless soul like me from exiting the planet like I almost did, then my mission will be accomplished. I’m sorry I wasted all these years! #davidgoggins #canthurtme #ptsd #burnsurvivors

🇺🇸 Gentry here, guys. Thanks for reading this far down. If you care to and are able to, please consider donating a few dollars to my 9/11 Tribute Fundraiser for the “STOP SOLDIER SUICIDE” Foundation here. Today, more vets die by their own hand than by any enemy. That’s just wrong. Any amount helps. I donated $25 myself. Not much, but it’s something. God bless. LINK: 🇺🇸
