She tells The Doctors the pain is "suffocating." Despite her pain, she says she is attempting to "rewire her brain" and move forward. 

The Doctors bring in PTSD specialist Dr. Eugene Lipov, who pioneered a groundbreaking treatment for PTSD. With a simple epidermal injection to the neck, he is often able to stop the symptoms of PTSD. Dr. Lipov explains that this treatment has been successful for other people who have experienced trauma related to abuse. Dr. Lipov offers to treat Tiffani at no cost.
