Dr. John King Discusses His Book #DealWithIt – living well with PTSD with veterans and trauma sufferers in Akron.
“#dealwithit – living well with PTSD is a book for anyone who has lost it all. If you have been shot at, faced with sudden loss, blown up, screwed over (or in my case, screwed), this book is for you. I like to think of it as duct tape for the soul.” —Dr. John A. King
#DEALWITHIT IS A PTSD SELF-HELP BOOK FOR VETERANS, POLICE AND TRAUMA SUFFERERS IN Akron
#dealwithit – living well with PTSD is the honest, raw, not-safe-for-work account of Dr. John A. King trying to piece his life back together, move forward and thrive after the spontaneous recall of over a decade of childhood sexual abuse by his parents and their friends. This recall event, or John-A-Geddon, was followed by the immediate onset of Complex Post Traumatic Stress, which led to the loss of his marriage, career, and health and will be of great benefit to anyone who suffers PTSD, who knows of someone that does.
This book shares John’s gritty process of rebuilding his life. On his journey, you’ll find practical tools, unlikely mentors and his trademark Aussie sarcasm. #dealwithit is the perfect book for anyone who is getting up to go again, or is in the middle of the fight and just needs to hear, “You can make it.”
