Finished Healing from Trauma: A Survivor's Guide to Understanding Your Symptoms and Reclaiming Your Life by Jasmin Lee Cori. I found this book very helpful. Last year I was diagnosed with Complex PTSD as a result of years of dealing with an alcoholic spouse/ex. His disease had a tremendous effect on the health of my daughter as well. She also has PTSD. I will admit that it took me a long time to finish this book, but that was my own avoidance of the whole topic. There were days when I just didn't want to get into it, so I didn't read. The book is written by a therapist who is herself a trauma survivor, which gives both the clinical and the personal perspective on things. The book is very accessible and I saw a lot of my issues right there on the page, along with sound suggestions for coping with them. I think people tend to associate PTSD with combat fatigue. There are all sorts of combat in this life. This book acknowledges this. Someday I hope to stop fighting my war.
