My Brother’s Keeper Relearning to live with PTSD

Easy to understand and read. Attention grabbing and, for me, it was a page turner. This is honestly the first book I've read all the way through in decades. Jeremy, a former LEO, takes you through his continued journey of ups, downs, good, bad and the truth while struggling with depression and PTSD. He exposes some real truths about being backed (or not) by the blue. I highly encourage you take some time and give My Brother's Keeper a read. – Reviewed by M.D. via Amazon

You never know until you have it happen to you. Very gripping and eye-opening to law enforcement personal traumas and experiences. Just goes to show they are human and can be traumatized by events that happen in the line of duty. A real heart opener to the ups and downs, losses, and addictions that PTSD can have on anyone, and the struggles to regain somewhat normalcy in life again. Well, almost normalcy it never really goes away. Great read. – Reviewed by Ann
