hi I'm Amy Chapman. in October of 2016 I started cosmetology school and completely found my passion there. After dealing with some traumatic family issues I began seeking help for anxiety and depression. only to find out how sensitively my body reacts to some medications. in March 2017 I was hospitalized for suicide ideation because of a medication.. Which then manifested into severe panic disorder and C-PTSD. The diagnosis of PTSD was hard to swallow as I thought only veterans had it, but experiencing the level of flashbacks I have i now feel like there's finally and explanation which can now lead to healing. I have been working very hard on my healing journey and it has paid off tremendously. in April I was having anywhere from 2-5 panic episodes a DAY and now it's only about 1 a week. With all that's said. Nate has taken FMLA leave from work to help get me to appointments and take care of me. Our new family member Lucy will be going to task service training soon and I won't be going back to school until october so I'm being vulnerable and putting my story out there to see if anyone can relate. empathize or can just help us out in any way possible. Thank you so much.
