This is the story of how we began RVing. As survivors of the Las Vegas mass shooting, mental health awareness was crucial in our process of overcoming PTSD & transitioning from weekend warriors to full-time RVers. While hiking near Mammoth Lakes California we discuss what drives us to be physically active and the everyday decisions that positively affect our lives. We talk about going to therapy for PTSD, hiking, being in nature, and how RV life can have both positive and negative effects on mental health. Life is all about choices, we have chosen to be happy and make positive choices to better our lives on a daily basis. We hope this video helps someone who is struggling out there.
It's ok, not to be ok, make sure you practice mental self care. RV Living is not all rainbows and sunshine, we have bad days just like everyone else. We discuss how it's hard work to be happy, sometimes you need to take a day for yourself and get yourself to a good head space. RV Living seems to be all fun and games from the outside looking in, but this is still daily life. We still have stressors just like you would in a traditional lifestyle. We go out for a BBQ lunch at Goody Coles Smokehouse in New Hampshire, which puts a smile on Mel's face. Afterwards we decided spending some time relaxing at the lake would be a good idea, so we went kayaking. Well we failed to check the weather and didn't realize a big storm was rolling in. Within 5 minutes of getting out on the water it starts to rain a bit. We still take our time, then the rain really hits and we decide to high tail it back to the dock! ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
This video was very difficult for me to make, while hiking Mount Washington in New Hampshire, I open up about surviving the mass shooting in Las Vegas Nevada. We attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas in October 2017. It changed our lives forever. I now live with PTSD, anxiety and depression. I go into detail about what triggers I deal with on a daily basis. Loud noises, crowds, and confined spaces. I touch on things I have done to cope with the PTSD. Diet change, exercise, quit drinking alcohol and started traveling full-time RV living. PTSD is on going it comes and goes, every day is different and there's a lot of ups and downs. Just like the ups and downs of this video. This was extremely had for me to open up about. My hope is that this helps others with their own mental heath issues. Whether it's PTSD, anxiety, stress intolerance, or depression you need to know that there is help out there. You cannot be afraid to talk about your emotions. I know first hand, if you keep them inside it only makes everything worse in the long run. Now it's almost two years later and I have just started to open up about my struggles. If I can do it, anyone can.
