I just had to reblog this new post by my blogger friend, Cynthia Bailey-Rug, especially since she is quoting a conversation that she and I recently had, and she included a link to my blog in her post. Although I have already included this information in a page on my blog called ***How to Heal PTSD***, I realize that not everyone reads my blog pages. Plus, Cynthia has a way of putting things into words, that definitely surpasses my writing skills. Which is why I highly recommend following her blog if you have ever experienced abuse, particularly narcissistic abuse, and especially if you have Post Traumatic Stress in any form, as a result.
Best of all, Cynthia, like me, is a woman of faith. Before I became a Christian believer seventeen years ago, I could barely function with my almost lifelong PTSD. My faith in the Lord Jesus has made ALL the difference. Especially now, during this scary, strange, turbulent time that we are living in, with this covid-19 coronavirus pandemic! My granddaughter and her husband have tested positive for covid-19, they just got the results of their test on Good Friday. Truly, if I were still an agnostic atheist, I think I would be losing my mind right now!
Thank you to everyone who has answered my request for prayers for them, by the way. Both my granddaughter and her husband are feeling better!!!!!
Okay, here is Cynthia’s post about what Paul Meier, MD, of Richardson, Texas, told me in March 2003, when he diagnosed my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Very wise and encouraging words, indeed!I
PS: It was in Dr. Meier’s New Life Clinic that I became a Christian believer. Dr. Meier is a Christian. And he has authored or coauthored over 100 books, many of which were bestsellers. I literally owe my sanity and my life to Dr. Meier.
Recently I was speaking with a fellow blogger, Linda Lee at https://ablogabouthealingfromptsd.wordpress.com (it’s a great blog! Check it out!). We were talking about how we don’t believe God created people for things like surviving abuse & losing someone we love which is what makes coping with such things so incredibly hard. During this conversation, she told me something very interesting. Some time ago, she spent time under the care of the well known Meier Clinic. In fact, she was blessed enough to be under the care of Dr. Meier directly! After a lifetime of abuse & bad mental health diagnoses, this was an incredible blessing! What he told her made so much sense in her situation, but I believe in other people’s situations as well. It sure fit mine! It probably will fit your situation too!
