After a long career in the military I was discharged because of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).  Life has changed dramatically and I wasted far too much energy on trying to find my old self rather than accepting the new me. I found that the greatest therapy I could undergo is that of self healing. I achieved that by writing and especially poetry, which I had never tried prior to becoming unwell.   

My first book "Second Life" is now sold out and out of print. I still have some hardback copies here at home should anyone like one. Please message me to request a copy. Poetry from Karl Tearney | Willow Tree Society
