"Ray Of Hope"
by Joe Fuller

For many years after my traumatic incident, I struggled with the same questions that haunts most victims.One of which is what is the Lord's plan ? Little did I know that his plan was already in action. Over the years the Lord has allowed me to wander from one therapist to another or even checking out different treatment programs. I was looking for the magic cure, My mind was looking for empathy.Soon, I began to realize that there are some mental disorders that are far beyond man's ability to achieve a cure for. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder unless caught in the very early stages is beyond man's help.The best that mental health professionals could do was limited to temporary relief from the symptoms of PTSD by providing medication and psychotherapy.Healing comes from the Lord not man alone. In January 1998, the Lord freed me from the grasp of this illness. The technique that brought me permanent relief was developed by Dr. Ed Smith, a Christian Counselor. Today, I remain totally free of all the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am doing things that I have not done in ten years, but I still carry a professional diagnosis of PTSD.My traumatic event is still lodged in my memory but no longer carries any weight in my life. The symptoms are also present but no longer interfere with my life. Today, with the help of the Lord, I am very capable of helping victims find truth from lies in their past that are emotionally paralyzing them. I simply refer to this method as " Healing the Inner Self". My memory today is peaceful and calm. It worked for me, it could easily work for you!
