If you breathe, you have likely experienced trauma. It can range from single, severe, life-altering events like an accident, loss or other forms of tragedy, to something more insidious and beneath the surface, like being humiliated and bullied throughout grade school. Trauma changes your brain and it changes your body.
Do you know why you are feeling so exhausted? Are you feeling a bit light-headed, distant, or disconnected?
