Welcome to Beautiful Lives by Susan

Beautiful Lives by Susan is lifestyle health blog about Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

I've lived with increased degrees of PTSD since the age of six until the age of 62 when I was correctly diagnosed. At last, I found my answers.

After a life-long search to make sense of β€œWhat happened to me”, I’m now compelled to provide an online home for people like me to search for their own answers.

It is my honor to serve you with quotes, books, videos, articles, and news. Together we light the way to manifest our beautiful lives.πŸ”₯
