I think this the most ‘raw’ post I have ever written to date.
As I said in a previous post one of the reasons I have taken so long to get to apply my MBA is because I had PTSD.
For the clueless ……..
What Is PTSD?
PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault.
So how did I get here???
Well the company I used to work for sold its African operations. Since I was recruited for the African operations and the company head offices were in the Middle East we were asked to relocate.
I was sent to do on assignment in Baghdad
and returned with…….PTSD. Battling PTSD in Kenya a country where mental illness is considered witchcraft and therefore ostracised and stigmatised was a harrowing experience.
But I made it……….
Thanks to loads of counselling and medication. SO here I am now ready to take on the GMAT.
