Healing From PTSD with Terrorist Attack Girl Meyli Chapin

Meyli Chapin was trapped in a hotel room for 17 hours in Nairobi while Al-Shabaab terrorists attacked the property. She was alone and certain she was going to die. But through the incredible efforts of brave men who fought to recover Meyli and extract her to safety, she survived. However, after the attack, PTSD left her mind shattered. She felt like a fraction of the strong, confident, capable woman she used to be. She thought she was uniquely traumatized and couldn't understand why she was unable to leave her apartment, why she couldn't sleep, and why she wished she had died in the terrorist attack. It was a long, hard road, but eventually Meyli did find the light at the end of the tunnel. She shares her experience of healing from PTSD, as well as thoughts and strategies to help anyone suffering from trauma to find hope and relief.

In this episode:

  • The difficultly of living in a region with a constant threat of terrorist activity. 
  • Meyli was only scheduled to be in Kenya for 2 days. She was supposed to be leaving the next morning.
  • A sleepless night full of panic to the point of heartache.
  • Grieving the person you are before the trauma.
