"Everybody out there wants to feel heard and
validated and accepted and important".
Donna Michaels is a U.S. Navy Veteran, 20 year law enforcement officer, a proud mom of a teenage daughter and enjoys her time with their three hysterically funny dogs.
After being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2017, she began a journey to find answers to questions she had struggled with for years. In the course of doing so, she started to journal and before she knew it, she had written a book.
Her discoveries not only allowed her to find the answers she was seeking, but in choosing to share her story she realized she could help others as well.
She credits her strength and “Never Quit” mentality to the three years she spent working alongside Navy SEALs. There she made friendships that have lasted a lifetime and would eventually save her life.
She has spent much of the past two decades in law enforcement helping others in crisis from various mental health problems. She is a Crisis Intervention Officer, Critical Incident Stress Management member and is all too familiar with how traumatic events can affect anyone, even the bravest and strongest among us.
In an effort to erase the stigma of PTSD, Donna hopes to not only encourage those battling their own invisible wounds to get help, but also help the general public gain more understanding of what it is and as a result, be afraid of those who have it.
Knowledge is power and that in and of itself is the key to understanding PTSD.
