Publisher's Summary

Most people don’t understand what CPTSD or PTSD is. They recognize PTSD as being a thing that happens only to veterans who have been put through wartime suffering. But what about other people who experience an extreme amount of trauma or experience a prolonged existence full of negative events? What conditions do they come out of the trauma with? How is that trauma (the trauma of wartime) any different from the suffering that comes out of a romantically abusive relationship? How is the trauma of a soldier different from the trauma of a child who hides in his closet; both of them fearful of the people and the danger that is on the other side of a barrier?

The truth of the matter is this: a person can experience complex PTSD (CTPSD) from any kind of event or events which make them feel helpless or hopeless. These events can be rape, childhood abuse or neglect, emotional trauma, extreme weather, bullying in a romantic relationship, bullying from your friends or coworkers, shaming and embarrassment from parents and teachers, and more.

Complex PTSD changes the brain in many ways. It atrophies the parts of the brain which make us want to pursue new learning experiences. Traumatic events agitate the central nervous system by overwhelming the body with the stress hormone cortisol.

I understand the symptoms you are suffering all too well. I suffered from the symptoms until I spent a significant amount of time on my own personal growth and wellness. I can help you, too - but only if you’re willing to get real with yourself.

If you feel largely traumatized in a particular situation, you will become seriously traumatized over a period of time. You might become traumatized to the point that you no longer feel....

I feel bad for having to leave this review…

If you have been diagnosed or know someone who has been diagnosed with a trauma disorder, do not listen to this book. I mean you can if you want to, but I suggest you don’t. While the author makes some points, it doesn’t really explain how this diagnosis feels. Furthermore, comparing psychopaths, serial killers and mass murders who have not been diagnosed with trauma disorder is disgustingly dangerous. It does not help with the already grave misconceptions or myths surrounding trauma disorders. I feel bad having to say this, the author maybe wrote this to help with his own diagnosis, but it is my honest opinion. I bought this so maybe my husband can better understand and support me, and now I hope he doesn’t listen to it. Also, while it is important to try, to not give up, and to continue therapy or learning strategies, not everyone can come back, and it affects every brain/person differently. Do not feel ashamed for what happened to you, it isn’t your fault. Do not feel shame if all your efforts seem for naught, it isn’t your fault, you are not alone, it’s okay, just keep breathing.

!! Does not explain how CPTSD feels !!

I bought this book hoping it would be a useful tool to help explain CPTSD to those who care for others suffering with CPTSD. I was deeply disappointed 🙁
