Another email came today. The 6th this week from someone who suffered from a lifetime of PTSD symptoms. Then they found life-changing treatment in the five- to ten-day outpatient program at Intensive Trauma Therapy.
Someone who heard Wanda Sanchez’s story on a radio show, online, at a seminar, or at a professional training session.
Because she had the faith to hang on to someone else’s hope. We often tell people we’re just two chicks with a story—but it’s a pretty incredible story.
Not quite three years ago, Wanda was hanging onto life by her fingernails. She didn’t know she had PTSD, and she really didn’t care. She was ready to check out and die.
He arranged every impossible detail for her to go for two weeks of trauma treatment that changed her life.
On day three, her rage, nightmares, and flashbacks disappeared.
Obsessive-compulsive behaviors became manageable.
Addictive and self-abusive behaviors became choices, rather than compulsions.
Intensive Trauma Therapy gave Wanda’s life back. I know. She didn’t believe it was possible, but she trusted me when I told her ITT could do what no other treatment she had tried could do.
Today–less than three years later–Wanda and I speak and consult on post-traumatic stress disorder across the nation. We explain how PTSD feels, how it affects child development, and how friends, family, employers, and others can better understand those with PTSD.
If you’re struggling with the symptoms of PTSD, take the first step. Talk to someone who understands–a friend, a professional, or get connected online. Take a step toward healing.
There is HOPE.
