In this episode I talk to Robert and Kristen Sweaza of Southern California. Robert and Kristen started an organization called Blue Wives Matter. Because of the death of a fellow officer in Robert's department of Fountain Valley California, they saw the need to support families and spouses of police officers who die while on duty. They witnessed first hand the insolation that can take place when a spouse is no longer considered part of the "team", not to mention the financial and emotional struggles that inevitably take place. So much good has come from the efforts of Kristen and Robert that extends across the country.

In the last segment I talk with Susan Gaudet, LCSW about post traumatic stress (PTSI) Susan specializes in trauma and utilizes proven therapies to overcome these types of trauma stresses. We will talk about EMDR, ( Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This therapy has recently been proving very useful in providing relief from PTS, Depression and Anxiety to just name a few.
I will talk about my journey as I proceed with Susan with the EMDR therapy she is providing for me. I will share with you my experiences as I go through it myself.
