Client served in the military, developed PTSD after standing guard stateside over the bodies of her fallen comrades. She could not sleep without lights, could not watch television for fear there would be a dead body. Her life was unraveling.
”When I was doing funerals, I would stand over the bodies and hear the sound of the body settling in the coffin and smell the smells.”
She left the ART session feeling ”high and happy-tired. I had no bad feelings, no anxiety and my chest didn’t get tight. I usually couldn’t talk about it. I would clam up and freak out, but it was amazing. I’m doing just fine. I have days that are up and down but I’m a strong person. I really am.”
