Michele Rosenthal was just 13 when she suffered from a rare allergic reaction that left her a full-body burn victim. For over two decades she suffered from PTSD symptoms before finally self-diagnosing her condition and getting help. She talks to me about the lows—self-blame, anorexia, recurring nightmares—then the high of recovery.


Michele is the founder of HealMyPTSD.com. Her new book is titled Heal Your PTSD: Dynamic Strategies That Work.
