    PTSD, as the name suggests, is a stress disorder that follows a traumatic event or period of time where an individual is gripped by such terror and feelings of helplessness that it actually changes how their nervous system operates moving forward. This insidious, and far too often life-threatening disorder can arise from the aforementioned cases of war or sexual abuse, but it also can be set in motion by any and all other forms of psychological trauma.

    E Mills says: "Enjoyable and helpful! Reads like a novel but offers keen insights to PTSD."

    Story

    Though PTSD is a "heavy" topic, this book provides levity into the subject matter while telling an important story. It's a personal journey that's enjoyable to read due to the author's writing style - you find yourself immediately bought-in to the story from the first few sentences and suddenly you're now traveling alongside his travels, both literal and figurative. If you know anyone who's struggled with PTSD or you have yourself, this book also provides keen insights into the pilgrimage back to health and "normal" life. In the back it also offers a summary of key learnings and helpfully describes the symptoms of the disorder - a bit of a roadmap to understanding PTSD and trauma, providing or seeking support, and also some very important thoughts about anti-depressants. Even this part is enjoyable to read because it's not clinical, but rather still part of the author's personal journey and his desire to help others by sharing his experiences. A great read! And further, an important one for anyone wanting to understand more about PTSD.
