Johanna Draconis - The Deconstruction Of C-PTSD

In this podcast I am trying to teach how to heal or even cure yourself from C-PTSD, like I managed to do it on my own, by taking it apart, explaining how it works and how you can defeat your demons.Also I will try to answer any questions and give additional information if asked.I want to give people the tools needed to be finally free of those demons and that they live a life worth living.You can visit my homepage for more information and you also find all transcripts there: https://www.johannadraconis.com/podcast/NOTE: If I say PTSD podcast, I mean everything, including C-PTSD. I just say PTSD to be more inclusive.

Ep40 - Am I still me?

Am I still me? A question many ask who are hit with great challenges in their lives. During that time a lot of change happens and sometimes people wonder if they are still themselves.This applies to people who suffer from tragic losses, mental illnesses, being handicapped, suddenly loosing everything and so on and so forth.But I noticed a lot of people seem to think that a mental illness is like a transformation that will turn you into something you are not. Like a werewolf. Which is one of the reason to fear admit they need help and/or talk about it.So let us talk about it and shed some light on the whole thing, shall we?Transcript: https://www.johannadraconis.com/podcast/episode-36-45/episode-40/Contact: contactme@johannadraconis.com
