According to the National Institute of Mental Health about 1 in 30 adults in the U.S. suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in a given year. Those with PTSD suffer persistent fear, flashbacks, hyper vigilance, and more. Though PTSD is largely recognized in war veterans, many different people who have survived traumatic events, such as rape, abuse, or natural disasters, can be impacted by long-term psychological symptoms too. It is usually triggered by a fearful, helpless, or horrific event that threatens injury to one’s self, or the witnessing of these types of traumatic events that happen to others.
My special guest for today's show is Author Dan L. Hays, a man who has first-hand knowledge of this paralyzing disorder. Dan was diagnosed with chronic and severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from two incidents in his childhood that he only began remembering as an adult.
Dan is a very interesting speaker and writer with extensive knowledge on the topic of PTSD. He will be sharing his knowledge with us today and illustrating what the road to healing looks like.
