Book Helps Trauma Survivor Make Sense of His Condition

09 Sep

Thank you for the information in the book, Invisible Heroes. As a trauma survivor of many years who has worked long and hard to regain my normal life, I have been misunderstood, mis-diagnosed and mis-medicated. My symptoms confused me and made me fear for my sanity. The book explains what I have been experiencing and puts the remaining pieces of the puzzle together, including my chronic fatigue. It also underscores the triumph of what I have achieved in conquering my panic and numbness. I am grateful that the fields of psychiatry and psychology are finally figuring post-traumatic stress out.   -M.G.
