The Road To Mental Wellness, was an attempt to crawl out of the darkness and away from the debilitating symptoms of PTSD. At the time, I had little help, I was off work and was lost...."I am my work; I am a firefighter!" I said to myself.; utterly convinced that my life had lost its meaning and hence, void of purpose. So, I began to obsessively write out where I had gone wrong. I Deval into my troubled childhood, my depressive teenaged years and pondered what happened in my young adult life. What I found along the way, was a live-long battle with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. What I found was, with each word I carefully tapped out on my archaic and outdated keyboard, was a step towards rediscovering my purpose... Helping others continues to be my passion!
Within the pages of my book, you may find your way again. At least this is the hope. Many who have read it, tell me that it's done just that; Please know that mental illness isn't the end, but maybe, it's a brand-new beginning.
Twenty authors from the military and emergency services tell their stories of how they ended up with post-traumatic stress disorder.
