Donetta's Story (56 seconds)

In September 2001, I was in Washington, D.C. working for the Department of Defense. That didn't work out too well for me. I had a lot of post traumatic stress from that event that happened on September 11th, 2001. I ended up having a nervous breakdown. I found myself in Bryce Hospital, state mental institution, where I stayed for 30 days. I received treatment. I left Bryce Hospital and I went into group home. Well today, I am happy to report that I am now living in the community independently. I am also a member of CONTACT: Wings Across Alabama, Region 6. Continue to move forward, stay steady. I know it's not easy. Recovery is not easy, it is very difficult. But continue to move forward and keep putting one step in front of the other.
