An Associated Press reporter interviewed Daryl at the recent PTSD 2015 Forum. It is a very insightful article, which has received worldwide syndication.
The article touches on what Daryl has learnt first hand, and knows is common for survivors of horrific trauma:
‘I literally thought I was going crazy so I didn’t tell people my thoughts,” he said.
He erected a wall around himself while experiencing anger, anxiety, depression and hyper-arousal as he tried to live a normal existence.
He even had suicidal thoughts but realised he couldn’t do that to his parents.
“I then did one of the most courageous things I have done in my life – I asked for help.”
