In Peter Levine's book, 'Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma', he begins the journey with the reader by comforting them.
He states: "If you are experiencing strange symptoms that no one seems to be able to explain, they could be arising from a traumatic reaction to a past event that you may not even remember. You are not alone. You are not crazy. There is a rational explanation for what is happening to you. You have not been irreversibly damaged, and it is possible to diminish or even eliminate your symptoms."
Wondering if you have been through a trauma? Or why you are feeling, thinking, or doing what you do? You don't have to wonder alone. Help is available!
