#PTSD Recovery is a tough road, and it can not be travelled alone. Here is how OTR helps.

1. Listening to the show is a form of peer support. Hearing stories from people who have been there, done that...just like you , is a POWERFUL thing. Knowing you are not alone IS healing.

2. There are a LOT of resources out there. I find the resources, and bring them to the show.

    Ep. #279. Shoulding on People, and Shoulding on yourself

    Ep. #279. Shoulding on People, and Shoulding on yourself

    When correcting others, try not to spray should all over them.  

    Shoulding always comes from a place of critical judgment, and not from understanding, respect, and compassion. Shoulding can damage self esteem, create a toxic environment, damage morale, reduce productivity, increase sick-days, and increase employee turnover. 

    If you replace shoulding with active listening, respect, and compassion, your world will change.  Compliance will increase, relationships will be optimal, stress will lower, and everyone will benefit. 

    This skill is helpful in everyone's life. 

    Thank you to my good friend Aaron Butt for inspiring me to put this together. 

    Please comment, and provide feedback on what you hear in this episode.  I want to hear from you.  Your voice matters.

    The Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s enduring promise to America’s Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps Special Operations Personnel is to honor the fallen, and all Medal of Honor Recipients, by providing full educations and additional opportunities, “cradle to career” (preschool – college), to their children, ensuring:

    (1) Comprehensive educational support including, but not limited to, academic advocacy, preschool and private school grants, tutoring, support for students with disabilities, college readiness programs, full financial assistance for up to a four-year post-secondary degree, access to our college to career transitions program, a commitment to cover educational costs for the surviving children of Special Operations Personnel whose spouses perish while the Special Operator is actively serving, while providing a variety of other practical programs and services.

    (2) Provide immediate financial grants to severely combat-wounded, ill, and injured Special Operations Personnel who require hospitalization.

    Sean Corrigan is a former Army Ranger, and Green Beret who is now dedicated to serving the families of the fallen.

    WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

    WE BELIEVE THERE IS A BETTER WAY TO DEAL WITH TRAUMATIC EMOTIONS AND NEGATIVE EMOTIONS AFFECTING OUR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES.  WE DEVELOPED THE TACTICAL RESILIENCY PROCESS (TRP) WHICH IS THE HEART OF OUR INTERVENTIONS.  THEY ARE THE TRAUMA RESILIENCY-PROTOCOL (TR-P) AND THE EMOTIONS MANAGEMENT PROCESS (EMP).

    HOW WE DO IT
    WE CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO BY DEVELOPING RESEARCH ON EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS SUCH AS TRP/EMP, AND WE WERE ABLE TO SHOW 100 CLIENTS WERE SUCCESSFUL AT ELIMINATING THE SYMPTOMS OF PTSD IN OUR “TESTING THE MODEL” STUDY. WE COMPLETED A SECOND STUDY WITH 100 MORE CLIENTS IN “VALIDATING THE MODEL” TO SHOW ALL OF THEM WERE PTSD-FREE AS WELL.  THE THIRD STUDY SHOWED 66 CHILDREN ALSO BECAME PTSD-FREE, ALL OF THEM! LET THAT SINK IN!
    OUR SUCCESS-BASED PRACTICE IS 100 PERCENT SUCCESSFUL AT NEUTRALIZING PTSD SYMPTOMS ACROSS 3 STUDIES
    “THE BRAIN DOES THE WORK WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION IF VISUALS ARE DONE CORRECTLY.”

    WHAT WE DO
    WE ARE CONTRIBUTING TO A PURPOSE AND RESTORING THE LIVES OF AMERICA’S SONS AND DAUGHTERS THAT PUT A UNIFORM ON FOR A PURPOSE MUCH BIGGER THAN SELF.

    THE TACTICAL RESILIENCY PROCESS CONSISTS OF
    THE TRAUMA RESILIENCY-PROTOCOL (TR-P) & THE EMOTIONS MANAGEMENT PROCESS (EMP) THEY WILL HEAL THE HERO.

    Ep. #275. Immediate Action Drills for Healing, and the long term plan

    Ep. #275. Immediate Action Drills for Healing, and the long term plan

    The most effective healing I’ve found so far


    Immediate Intervention
    Connection.  Speak with someone…ANYONE about what’s going on, how you are feeling.  Preferably, someone who is trained at listening.  Call a crisis line in your area, or call a friend and say the words, “I need you to talk to you, and I need you to listen”.  If you do this, put in the caveat….  ”Please just let me vent, and don’t offer solutions unless I ask…ok?”

    Connect with yourself.  Get outside, sit on the ground, and breathe deeply for 2 minutes.

    If you are having an anxiety attack, find 3 blue things, 3 red things, 3 yellow things in your environment and name them.   Then 3 big things, 3 small things, 3 pretty things.  This is a grounding exercise.

    Also, look at any object, (I prefer horizons) and trace the outline…slowly from right to left, or counter-clockwise if it’s round. Continue..slowly, and focus as much as you can.

    Name 10 things you are grateful for…then name 10 more.


    TheFastest acting treatments

    NLP, 22zero
    EMDR
    Psychedelic therapy
    Reconsolidation therapy
    Nature

    Diet, fasting, Ketosis
    Drink lots of water…nothing with sugar in it
    Proper Peer Support,

    Listen to My show, or any similar show you may prefer.  This allows you to connect to other peoples stories, and connection is healing.
    Classical music
    Cannabis


    Lifestyle choices to keep you level, promote healing, and build the “new you”

    Daily Habits
    Make your darn bed
    Declutter the house, garage, car, closet, and your schedule
    Eat clean.  Nothing processed. Supplement correctly.
    Move your darn body.  Lift something, swim,
    Find a community
    Be someone who you like, and respect
    Grow, learn, language, skills, knowledge
    Participate in therapy
    Equine Assisted Therapy, self awareness
    Help someone.  Then, …help some more.

    Mow lawn for free
    Deliver groceries
    Do laundry
    Clean a house
    Volunteer at any organization
    Pick up garbage on the street
    Pick up poop at the dog park
    Fix something for someone, car, porch, clothes,
    Cook someone a meal
    Smile
    Pay a compliment
    Encourage someone




    If helping isn’t for you, then stay busy with something creative.

    Leatherwork
    Painting
    Sculpture
    Musical instrument
    Singing
    Mechanics
    welding/fabrication
    Software development
    Write a book
    Podcast
    Create an event



    Nobody is going to save you.

    Superman and Wonder Woman will not show up. Not ever.

    Only you can choose to act.

    When you’re in hell, keep your feet moving.

Domestic Abuse, Sexual Trauma

We Can Heal. Far along healing PTSD it still emerges under stress & takes a LOT of tender loving care, self compassion & being vulnerable to progress. Hope shines here. Was married to a Vet which escalated both our PTSD❤️

Soundtrack to my Sunrise

OPTR is fantastic! My house may be dark and empty but my day doesn't always have to start that way since I can now listen in on genuine conversations as soon as I wake up. I was a firefighter at the Humboldt Broncos bus crash and am now struggling with a DSM disorder. BUT listening to Mark and his guests gives me hope for myself and anyone else on a healing journey. There is a contagious positivity that results when veterans and first responders recover out loud and together!
