The United States has more public mass shootings than any other country in the world and one woman who survived the horrifying experience joins The Doctors.
Shelly was working at the Cascade Mall and witnessed the shooting on September 23, 2016, in Burlington, Washington, where five people were killed. One of the victims was Shelly’s friend and co-worker. Since the tragic events of last year, Shelly has had trouble getting back to her normal life and is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
“It’s tough. You have this sense of is it fair that it was you lived? Would they be doing something better than you are in the world?” she says, explaining that she feels constantly preoccupied with the shooting, is easily distracted, has trouble sleeping and has nightmares. The mother of three is now worried about the shooting is affecting her current job and her family. Shelly feels as though she has to suppress her feelings regarding the shooting and also feels as though she’s bringing others down, which causes her to retreat from her family.
In hopes of helping Shelly reclaim her life, The Doctors bring in Dr. Eugene Lipov, who offers Shelly a procedure of injecting SGB, Stellate Ganglion Block, which can reboot the brain’s fight or flight instinct and dramatically change how someone deals with PTSD.
Watch the video below to see more surprises The Doctors have for Shelly, including help from Doctor on Demand and something for the brave survivor and her family that will help them spend more time together.
