Hi, my name is Elizabeth Brico and I’m the new author of Trauma! A PTSD Blog. You can also call me Betty if you prefer. I’ve been diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for almost a decade. I developed it in response to domestic violence, which occurred when I was a teenager. HealthyPlace has been a long time refuge for me. I’ve enjoyed reading the various blogs and articles, especially those pertaining to PTSD. You can imagine, then, that I’m thrilled to be joining the team as one of the authors of Trauma! A PTSD Blog.
