Wellness Connection of Maine Testimonial – Becky

I’m a combat VET. I deployed to Iraq. I was active duty Army. I always wanted to serve my country and just do something it just seemed like such a honorable like thing like that I wanted to do it. On edge a lot. You didn’t know what to expect every day those risks were the norm. So you just kind of become numb to it. And I just came out of a combat zone had surgery for the first time in a foreign country. Then I was being told that I didn’t do anything worth getting P.T.S.D.. So I started denying that I even had anything wrong. It was so hard. It was so hard. I want to forget I wanted to forget like it just all this and didn’t seem like anything was worth it so why feel why try to feel emotion. Started going to the V.A. Trying to get some help. Their solution was counseling and medication. I wasn’t buying into either one of them. Some of them made me feel completely numb. Some of them made me feel like I want to crawl out of my own skin. I knew something wasn’t right. So I started trying to find some different and then I found the Wellness Connection. I had no idea what to expect. I had no idea I mean when I walked into the Wellness Connection, it was another world to me. These people are educated and they really believe in the stuff they’re not just saying that they believe in it and to me that was a different world. I’m active at a gym now. I don’t feel dead inside. I don’t feel numb. I have a wife. I’m living. I feel alive. I do still struggle with stuff but I’m more willing now to struggle with those things. I’m more willing now to work through some of that stuff to face some of it. I’m trying to do the best I can to be a productive human in society and I can do that I can make it happen. It has helped me feel alive again. So that I know that I am worth.
