I have been sharing my journey of finding freedom from PTSD; from the initial trauma, and difficult months that followed, to beginning to slowly recover by seeking healing for my body, soul, and spirit. In the last post I wrote about pursuing healing, spiritually. Today I will share about my big breakthrough.

I am writing a series of blog posts about my experience with PTSD, in the hopes that it will help others who are walking through something similar. In my last post I wrote about the traumatic experience that caused my PTSD. This post was very hard for me to write.

From Fear to Freedom: Part 1

I have been walking through the most difficult season of my life; shockingly difficult. I want to tell you my story of recovering from PTSD, with the hope that it will help you, if you are going through something similar. I am aware that others have gone through, or are going through, their own suffering, some of which mine would pale in comparison to. But I am not going to minimise what I have gone through. It has been truly…
