About Today’s Guest: Donna Arnold
Donna was recently informed that she has lived with undiagnosed PTSD & Depression caused by multiple trauma in the first 30 years of her life which has never been treated. Sexual abuse, alcoholic parents, domestic violence - parents & mother dying as a victim, herself a victim, abandonment, verbal & emotional abuse. Now wants to help young people with some support she wished she had at 15.
Passionate about travel and discovering ancestor stories, Donna always has her camera primed, multiple destinations and itineraries partly prepared and a suitcase within quick and easy reach. Recently, after learning about her own overlooked need for support to treat PTSD and Depression that she wished she had received decades earlier, Donna has begun getting involved and helping young people who have had similar experiences.
‘Too often, kids aren’t aware of the long term effects of witnessing Domestic Violence, drug abuse etc that they’ve been exposed to and could be destroying their chances for happiness and possibly their kid’s’ she believes.
