I was a high school teacher in Arizona. Within a span of 18 months, I had three accidents each resulting in some type of Brain Trauma Injury. In one of the accidents an odd thing happened; my left eye went blurry and my whole left side became numb. The ER doctor said it was merely a concussion and hours later things went back to normal, but my life started changing. Because of the trauma to my brain, my thinking began being muddled. I would keep myself locked in my home, ultimately becoming a recluse. I couldn’t even go through a drive thru window to order food because the stress of talking to a stranger was too much for me to handle.
Hating facing dozens of students everyday, I resigned from teaching at 34 years old and spent the next four years going through thirteen different jobs. I was fired from several of them, quit the rest. I was making poor choices financially and having bouts of irrational behavior. While trying to manage my life I was diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and Depression and started to take medications for both.
While traveling to a part-time job in Salt Lake City, I was in another car accident that ended in spinal surgery. After the surgery, I had little choice except to move in with my parents. One morning, my dad found me sitting on the floor in my room, cross-legged, head down with all of my personal belongings scattered on the floor around me. Files, books, clothes, CD's DVD's: I was unsure what to do with all of my stuff. I literally did not have the ability to organize my belongings. It really scared my dad; I'd been living with them for six weeks and I hadn't organized a thing.
My mom helped me get a job; it lasted three days. I got another ob; it only lasted three weeks. After many jobs, over those four years, I had established that I just couldn’t stand to be around people. My parents were at their wits end. They knew that brain integration had helped my nephew and contacted a practitioner to see if there was any help for me. Arrangements were made and I received brain integration.
My whole world changed! My fear of people, my depression and anxiety had vanished and my mindset changed to where I began to have a new, positive outlook on life. I returned to teaching.
During that time, my dad was introduced to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). A technique that helps people overcome a variety of emotional issues. Gary Craig, the creator of EFT told my dad to try it on anything. He took up the challenge and in 9 weeks lost 36 lbs!
My dad called me and started to discuss creating a small business. We talked about how we could help people through EFT and brain integration. I completed the requirements and course work to become certified practitioner. I have been successfully helping people since 2009.
