The only thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a writer. (Except for a brief period when I was three years old and decided I would be a fire fighter because I really wanted to drive that fire engine.)
When I was five, I was so obsessed with reading and writing, that I was even willing to give up my play time to go to school. Once I could read and write, I could learn anything I needed to know. I would not even have to go to school anymore!
That is when I learned that life does not always work out the way you have it planned.
When I faced some serious challenges in my life, I did what writers do. I wrote about it. I figured the things I learned from that experience might be useful to other people. If my words could help another person recover faster or avoid some pitfalls, I wanted to share them. That writing morphed into a website and continues to grow as new information about PTSD becomes available. My first eBook, "Stay or Go", was born to address the biggest issue facing people who have a loved one suffering with post traumatic stress.
The biggest mistake I have ever made was not trusting myself.
The smartest thing I have ever done remains to be seen.

Author Suzanne Grosser talked about her new book Stay or Go: Loving or Leaving Someone with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder at the Leland Library on Friday, March 22, 2013.
Ms. Grosser began keeping a journal when, as a young woman, she suffered a traumatic attack. Her journal, along with her experiences with a loved one who was also suffering from a traumatic event, became a resource for her writing her newly published book. With the goal of helping others who may be facing PTSD in their lives, Ms. Grosser’s book is a concise and a no-nonsense, fair, and balanced plan of how to analyze your situation and make better decisions concerning what path to take. Ms. Grosser points out that she is neither a mental health professional nor a therapist, but has real life experience.
Either path one takes to deal with PTSD will have an effect on the entire family, but Ms. Grosser’s book will enable someone to make more informed decisions and hopefully avoid making mistakes. For more information related to PTSD please visit her website: www.heal-post-traumatic-stress.com
In a follow up book Ms. Grosser has recently released a new book Quiet Courage: Conquering Fear and Despair with the Stockdale Paradox. For more information on books and her personal journey please see her website: www.suzannegrosser.com.
