Michele Rosenthal shares her story of surviving an illness so rare none of her doctors had seen it.  As a teenager she nearly died.  As an adult she has struggled to overcome the shock of medical trauma and its aftermath. Having suffered with undiagnosed PTSD for 25 years and then finding her path to wellness, Michele became a certified professional coach to enable her to help others.  

"But my particular trauma is inconsequential. While we are all individual in our traumas, our Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms and experience is universal. I had a chat the other day with a Gulf War vet who experienced the same PTSD emotional landscape as I described myself. So there you are, PTSD is an equal opportunity invader.

"When I returned from the hospital PTSD set in almost immediately. I developed a bad case of insomnia, flashbacks, and nightmares. I walked around every day terrified that another trauma would occur and this time, I would not survive. Various and subtle survival mechanisms got put in place. I was hypervigilant, hyperaroused and hyperaware. I attempted to control everything about my body and immediate surroundings. I strove to make myself feel safe – and drove myself crazy in the process."

Michele dedicates herself to teaching audiences how to transform from powerless to powerful.  She shares what she has learned about facing life's challenges, personal strength, responsibility, and wellness.  She shares her three-step process for beginning to make changes immediately, both emotionally and scientifically.
