How to Make PTSD Recovery Easier

Heal My PTSDHow to make PTSD recovery easier is a quest every survivor struggling with posttraumatic stress disorder is on. One of the things that makes healing so hard is having to be face-to-face, out of your house, and shelling out a lot of cash in order to feel better. Of course, that’s only one way of approaching recovery. There are, of course, many ways to work toward healing. Some actually allow you to remain private, stay home, and reduce the outflow of funds.

Welcome to the busy and wonderful month of May, also known as Mental Health Awareness Month. In the upcoming weeks we’ll be sharing news, tips, and ideas about improving mental health, plus how you can reclaim control in this area.

Your wallet often takes a hit when you’re improving mental health. Each of us has felt the pinch of money going out to therapeutic interventions while not much is coming in due to our often reduced capability to work while managing symptoms. My team and I work very hard to bring you ideas and info about low or no-cost options for healing.

This week we’re excited that some spots have opened up in the small Heal My PTSD telephone (that means you can attend from home!) support groups.

Members of the groups have this to say about their experience: “Last month I started a job where twice a month I go to the other side of [a] bridge to work and I could not believe it! When I approached the bridge, nothing happened! No sweats, no heart pounding, nothing.  I used to almost have a panic attack just thinking about it but the phobia is completely gone! I even had to drive on the wrong side of this 2 lane bridge due to bridge work and I was fine!  It has given me such confidence in this healing process. I feel like the healing of the phobia is directly related to the work I’ve been doing with you and the support group.  I can feel the heaviness lifting!” And… “As Paul McCartney wrote in the song ‘Blackbird’ – – “spread your broken wings and learn to fly” – we have with PTSD all learned to fly with our broken wings and are clearly here because of our determination and want to live.  The PTSD support group has helped me on the path to heal my wings so I can live a fuller life.”  If your recovery would benefit from weekly professional, one-on-one coaching about healing and symptoms management, plus connection to others who understand you and are walking a similar path — all from the comfort of your own home and for a small weekly amount — then take a look here for more information. We have one spot left in each of our women-only Friday groups:
