Author Shane Schilperoort’s dreams began at a young age when he was first introduced to the California Highway Patrol. He told his parents he was going to become an officer and be helpful to the public. That dream came to fruition in the late 1990s. Schilperoort served with the CHP for seventeen years before a shooting in 2012 ended his career as a law enforcement officer and began his ordeal with post-traumatic stress disorder.
In PTSD Will Not Own Me, he shares his story beginning with the incident that changed his life. He tells how he dealt with PTSD and how, at first, he let his life be dictated by this debilitating injury. He discusses the depression he experiened and the raw and deep emotions that often got the best of him until he learned to cope.
PTSD Will Not Own Me narrates Schilperoort’s dark and unique journey through PTSD, encouraging others to manage their own injuries and forge ahead in life.
