I received a book review this week.
I want to share it here on the blog because the review itself serves as a message all of its' own accord. Read it below and allow it to resonate quietly inside you, allowing you to recognize that whatever it is you are going through you can overcome it.
“A heartfelt and truly inspirational book”. The author Susie Guckin, once a sufferer of TBI and PTSD, tells us of her captivating true-to-life story of her experiences. She shared these stories with soldiers from a local army base she volunteered at. She was moved by their encouragements and similar tales to share her experiences, and this book was born. Now, to all those who suffer from PTSD, Traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder, these are not simple ailments you can describe. For a long time, you may not find enough courage, willpower, and you will recoil in your own home because you're too afraid to go out and face reality. Yes, many of your friends will provide help but you still slip into a more dangerous state day by day. Not until a very good friend will come out of a corner and help take your sorrows away, just like this book. The words are full of hope, utterly moving, and it will allow you to take a step towards true recovery. Slowly, you will gain the strength to take back the many aspects of yourself that you’ve let go. At first, you thought you could not get them back but this book will do so much to help change your prior perspective. The author speaks from a very graceful voice, a voice filled with experience and keen understanding. A voice that is able to poetically share the pains and a strong voice that was able to overcome it. This book is not only a compilation of true inspirational storytelling, but it also provides an in-depth look into the PTSD and TBI. So it will be very useful for sufferers who have not gained enough information about these disorders. An all in one story! Truly, reading it is like entering a real movie setting and coming out with a happy ending where hope roars in your heart. The feeling doesn’t end, and the new spirit stays with you. The author’s story is amazing and she is a truly resonating soul that will touch you and many others too. This book will enable you to fight, and really fight strong! Anxiety can be overcome! You’ll learn and you won’t feel like you feel every day. Everything about this book is a gem, and all gems deserve to be seen. It is highly encouraged that people whose going through these disorders to read The Camouflaged Heart. ~J Callaway
