HOW YOU CAN HELP

Almost everybody experiences trauma at some point in life (death of a loved one, financial loss, crime, abuse, violence, divorce, accidents, health crisis, and natural disaster etc.)  It is normal to experience intense emotions in response to adversity.  However, persistent stress or exposure to traumatic events depletes the body’s resources and increases vulnerability to further injury and suffering.

By supporting whenlifesucks.org you are being a force for good. You take an active part in eliminating the secondary consequences of traumatic stress that make people more susceptible to illness, accidents, financial instability, and choices that pile stress on stress.

Our training and functional coaching is focused on improving the quality of life for veterans and their families. Our restorative care helps people to have more energy, create peace of mind, and reverse the effects of traumatic stress.  

Perhaps the greatest tragedy is that at least 50% of veterans don’t seek help!   Even more alarming is the number of family members that don’t don’t have access to care or know where to turn.  A number of studies confirm that when a veteran has PTSD that it negatively impacts the family resulting in marital problems, separation/divorce, sexual dysfunction, verbal aggression, higher rates of family violence, and financial stress.  

We have a great appreciation for the service and sacrifices that veterans and families have endured to fight terrorism, preserve freedom, and protect democracy.  We know that this has come at a great price and we want veterans and their family members to know that they have someone in their corner.  We appreciate you joining the effort to serve those who have served the country.
