Please note; this recorded message wasn’t easy to do. I had to refilm several times. Slight hash up job with the editing in parts, technology isn’t my forte! The books mentioned, I read a couple of years ago so there may be slight confusion with the author’s qualifications. More information will be available on my blog.The advice given is based on my personal experiences with PTSD. What may be right for one, may not be right for another. Always best to seek advice from a professional in the first instance for a diagnosis & treatment options. My intention for posting this is to help others by giving them a message of hope when living with a pervasive health condition. To help raise awareness that anyone can have this condition & survive through learning as much as you can about it.
