    Well, as many of my EP friends know,

    I have been struggling a lot with PTSD, depression, triggers, etc. That is no longer the case though! Lately, I have been so happy and at peace, it's unbelievable. I began meditating through a guided meditation app on my phone, and it has brought so much peace inside of myself...
