I was chased down and shot at by a family member. Although I have physical and emotional scars, I did survive. This was not a one-time occasion. This person tried a few times. I learned survival techniques that helped keep me alive and gave me the courage to think clearly enough to escape the situation. I pull on that courage today when I am having Complex post-traumatic stress disorder attacks.
