The Details

Traumatic experience:

Margo has experienced the loss of both of her parents to cancer and the loss of her younger sister and a romantic partner to suicide.

Effects of the traumatic experience:

Margo dealt with feeling depressed and overwhelmed. She had low energy and was not functioning well. It was also difficult for her to work during these times of loss.

Overcoming the traumatic experience:

Margo was able to work her way through her struggles with what is now her Body Aware Grieving system of recovery. This involved protecting her health, recovering from loss and getting stronger.

What Margo does today:

Margo is a fitness trainer and first-time author.

Final Question:

Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?

Margo's Answer: Just keep going.
