LAW ENFORCEMENT DISTRESS SYNDROME

Mental health professionals tell me this is different from PTSD. For months, I conducted nationwide research about LEDS. The results have been ASTOUNDING! Stay tuned!
For years, I struggled with travel. I found hypervigilance, anxiety, and fear were keeping me grounded. Through my mindfulness practice, faith, and personal growth work, I did it! I'm out there exploring the world. To celebrate, and because I love to write, I started blogging about my travel experiences...
LIFE, LOVE, AND
I've been in therapy since I was 5 because my mother insisted after my parents divorced. I ended up liking it & am still a regular on the couch. I've learned so much from my life journey so far, & I believe I wouldn't be even close to where I am were it not for the love, compassion, & help of my therapists.
