When you are a survivor of trauma, you can experience a dizzying dichotomy of feeling too much, and then feeling too little. When you feel too much, your nerves are on fire, and every dropped spoon on a plate is like someone has smashed into you with a ten-ton truck. And then, just as clearly, you feel nothing at all; your body feels numb, or your mind is blank.
If people don’t know about your trauma, they can interpret your blank stare as being deliberately unfriendly or aloof, and if you have been given the Male Label, it is likely that you were conditioned to remain silent about your suffering.
But there is hope.
Even though trauma is exceptionally hard to manage without the aid of professional help, there are survival tools that can lessen the impact of your trauma.
Beyond the Blue introduces you to those survival tools, and it is available in paperback and ebook.
