This is the story written by and about my good friend Betsy Randolph’s journey through PTSD. It was brought on by the accumulation of years of trauma on top of trauma until Betsy reached the “tipping point” that nearly sent her to the place of no return.
The encouraging part of Betsy’s story is that she finally realized that reaching out for help was not a weakness but rather a sign of strength.
Thanks to Dr. Tania Glenn and her use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a technique that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma, she found her way back to a normal life from the PTSD that nearly destroyed her.
