So, what about Second Chances?
Coming soon in November 2020 on Amazon – both Italian and American English – my story tale about PTS and my recovery journey in Paris terror attacks aftermath. More than self-help, expect a book of wonders.
You will find breathing technique exercises and meditations practiced in parisian hospitals and British military army, and wisdom from Native American Culture as resiliency model.
My unconditional love goes to inspiring Combat Veterans who lead the way and shared their poems and photo albums (Karl and Darren) and First Responders (Firefighters, Cops and Health Care). There was an emergency right before Covid-19 with people struggling in silence and now the epidemic encreased the isolation: the helpers need our help!
We don’t have any choice but stand up and there is no time to waste. Too many lives are taken. If you are reading these lines, we utterly share the same purpose.
keep it up and make the best of this sh*t…

Post–traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
Well, it’s much more than that and it doesn’t define you a little inch of your body, mind and spirit.
