Whether we like it or not, we all experience trauma.

Bad things happen, and they happen to everyone.

These events have a major impact on how we behave and who we become.

So how have other people coped (or not coped) with trauma? What are the major lessons – and gifts – that can be found in disaster?

That Shit Show covers everything from PTSD to the untimely death of children and siblings, pregnancy loss, disease, heartbreak, birth trauma, eating disorders, major natural disasters and everything else in between.

“Ring the bells that still can ring,

Forget your perfect offering,

There’s a crack in everything,

That’s how the light gets in.”

– Leonard Cohen – Anthem
