SUCCEEDING IN LIFE WITH PTSD AND DEPRESSION
You Can Still Be Successful and of Value To You, Family and Friends
One of the most personal and self-confronting presentations down with flair and a humorous twist. While we all mostly live a life of relative normality doing what society expects from us – many of us have a different life that exists deep within.
Diagnosed with PTSD and Depressive Disorder, Trace spends and hour plus Q and A time talking about how he has coped with and now controls the disorders that affected him for so long.
His highly popular blog www.captainkrankypants.com has shown him the he is not alone in this – many, many other people are the same but prefer to keep the inner ‘them’ hidden. This may be because of the need to be seen as strong, reliable, mature, sensible, a provider, a lover, a parent, etc… as a result people’s true selves and talents are restrained and locked away deep inside.
This presentation is Trace’s story of the road to bringing out the real him, the rediscovery of self, the rebirth of the true being that is him. Trace is not a mental health professional and has no formal training in medical areas – he is just a guy living with the conditions and not letting them control him. He is though an experienced public speaker and entertainer with a desire to help people accept and understand their conditions in a light hearted way.
