even harder and you CAN'T

What Does X-22 Adventures Do?
It could be a trip on Lake Okeechobee or a trip out in the Atlantic, Air Boats at night Frogging, possibly a gator hunt or a big swordfish in the keys. Some of these trips might take a little time to set up but we will have these kinds of trips in the Future. Until then there is always a body of water that can be fished somewhere.
All this will be done at no cost to that individual or individuals. That way he or she can just enjoy themselves and not worry about a thing other than having fun. Then add someone who knows what it's like to deal with Pain, PTSD and or Depression and this atmosphere makes things a little easier to open up about what's going on
in their head and heart. You take it from personal experience, once that door opens up, even just a little bit then it's not long before the flood gates open up and that weight disappears more every time you talk
about things. It's an amazing feeling when you can talk to someone who has been down that road before, that's why
PEER to PEER counseling while doing something fun is the best therapy in the world.
I'm LIVING PROOF that this can foster positive thoughts and create lasting results in an individuals life. I have several friends that will attest to this in my own life.
There is something about being outdoors while doing something productive with others who have been in their shoes. That allows you to open up and tell those deep dark secrets without being judged. Then the more you talk about those things while doing something productive and fun, you start to replace those bad memories with GREAT ones. The more this process and type of experience happens you start to distance yourself from following the same patterns again and again. This fight is winnable and together we will WIN!
