SYMPTOMS AND ENERGY BANK
If you have suffered from PCS, you may have experienced similar transitions in your own life:
The reality of redefining your “new normal” or, the terminology I prefer, your “second self”, requiring you to adjust your management of stress, pain, relationships, and the grief of your lost self.
Doctors, friends, coaches, colleagues, and family who simplified your symptoms to their own terms- or chose to ignore them altogether- forcing you to repeatedly advocate for yourself.
The onset of anxiety and/or depression as you navigated pain, relationships, redefinitions, and finding success in our overstimulating world.
