When a person comes home from active duty, they return with more than recognition and valor. They carry the memories of each moment and their body holds score of every intense psychological, emotional, and physical experience.
Matthew Tofflemire is a Veteran who’s found his way back to inner peace. This is his story of coming to understand how post-traumatic stress injury manifested for him, what it looks like to heal, and how healing allowed him to reconnect to himself and others with meaning and authenticity, enabling him to feel alive, peaceful, and fulfilled.
May his story help spread the understanding of how serving active duty can impact a person. May it normalize the experience of post-traumatic stress injury and seeking out the support that is available, while highlighting our innate ability to heal and grow.
