PTSD Alchemy & lucija
What is PTSD Alchemy?
It is the process by which the fear and anxiety related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is transformed into joy, peace and most importantly, LOVE.
Living with Post Traumatic Stress disorder can become overwhelming, isolating and induce feelings of hopelessness and depression. The fear, stress, anxiety, anger and depression associated with PTSD can become completely disabling and lead to dangerous coping mechanisms and illness.
There is hope. There are happy and healthy days ahead of you. Although the fear can be debilitating, it is a liar.
Who am I?
My name is Lucija (Lucy) Bojcic and I developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2012 as result of my many years of frontline work as an Inland Enforcement Officer with the Canada Border Services Agency.
A few years later, my PTSD began to manifest physically. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis after my lungs began filling with fluid. The combination of PTSD and Rheumatoid Arthritis proved lethal and intrinsically connected. My PTSD thoughts were reflected in my body causing my organs to shut down, my joints to swell, my lungs and body to fill with fluid.
In August 2016, I became so sick that I prayed each night that God be merciful and let me die. But that wasn't an option. Pushed to the physical/emotional/spiritual extreme, I surrendered. I realized that if I wanted to live, I was going to have to change every single thing about my life starting with my thoughts and my relationship to my pain.
With the help of my family, friends and some of the most incredible healers in the world, I can joyously say that I am happier, on the road to better health, and the best version of myself that has ever existed.
I have dedicated myself to healing and helping others.
If you or someone you know is suffering, please know that you are not alone and that there is hope.
