Now that I have finished my journey flipping the tire to bring awareness to PTSD, I am going to be putting my efforts into Camp My Way where people suffering from PTSD will be able to come to heal themselves naturally. Please visit the website Camp My Way to follow my journey battling PTSD and to learn more about what you can do to help as well as find resources to help yourself if you’re battling PTSD yourself.

See you there!

Final Kilometer of Flipping The Tire!

The Lion, peeks his heavy head out of his den this morning, eyes tired, back broken, knees and ligaments torn beyond repair. He grins and gently bears his teeth with a smile and a soft PRRRR.
He looks up into the beauitful universe and is grateful for his strength he has been given to walk this earth today and sacrifice his mind, body and soul each day to continue this ongoing battle to bring more awareness to Post Traumatic Stress, and try and help those who are suffering in complete silence right now, as they lay shackled to the deepest darkest depths of the devil’s belly. Flicks tail back and forth.

Two years ago, After my third denial from WCB for a PTSD claim, I lay in a hospital bed after breaking my pelvis in half. Told I may never walk again.

I found this post on the internet and I recall looking out of the hospital window and asked the universe for the strength to please let me walk again, and I would do everything I could to honour Nodar Kumaritashvilis’ life and do my best one day to make more people aware of the signs and symptoms of PTSD so they don’t have to suffer the way I had for so many years along the way.

One day, I will walk again, one day I will honor this 21 year old boy Nodar Kumaritashvili, who died in my hands and somehow simply ask the world to take 3 minutes to remember his life as a human being and ask those beautiful people to look up into the universe and thank him for sacrificing his life for me today to help bring more awareness to ‪#‎PTSD‬.

Only 2 months after attempting to die by suicide!

Only 2 months after attempting to die by suicide, I came up with this grand idea in my head, to maybe one day do some sorta awareness program to help try and prevent other people who suffer with PTSD, addiction, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts and try and motivate them or inspire them to hang on, stay strong and get the help they need to enjoy and appreciate life again.

One year ago today, I started writing down notes and ideas and got a crappy little camera and started filming myself to make some sorta promo video to launch Breaking the Chains. This was just a fantasy 1 year ago.

I ask myself as I wake this morning coming down the final stretch of the program, “is all of this year’s hard work worth it?

My answer is 849 pages long, and 2 books worth of writings. You will get my answer… one mouth full at a time, after this Saturday March 19th in Whistler’s Olympic Plaza at 11 am.

People ask me, “Terrance Joseph Kosikar, what are you going to do when this is all over on Saturday?”

I grin, then smile… and look them straight in the eyes… deep in their soul and say, ” OVER ?? this is just the beginning!” (winks)

Happy Birthday Breaking the Chains BC!! (more…)

Reports just in from CTV NEWS CHOPPER 7:

3 very unruly back country mountain BEASTS have been spotted in civilization supposedly roaming through certain Lordco Auto part shops sniffing out 100’s of pounds of new chain, stopping along the way and completely pillaging ridiculous sized tires just to raise more awareness to ‪#‎PTSD‬.

THANK YOU for the new chains – Craig Elkins / Lordco Auto Parts Squamish BC

24 kms done- starting decent…

It’s not about what’s wrong with these Beasts,,,its about what happened to them. POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

Quick question first so I can try and keep your attention for the duration of this post. 

Do you fasten your seatbelt after you’ve been in a car accident? Do you run out and buy a fire extinguisher while your house is on fire?

Well then, how about WE start taking more preventative measures to PREVENT #ptsd from consuming our lives and prevent the YEARS OF SUFFERING and wondering, “WHY ME? What did I do? Why do I feel this way, what can I do about it? or… I see my children acting strange or my friend at school is being a little more distant than she used to be …or my bro is really starting to drink and abuse substances too much..” (more…)

Speak softly and carry a big stick

“Speak softly and carry a big stick”

A proverb quoted by Theodore Roosevelt as a brief statement of his approach to foreign policy.

“Speak softly and carry 52 pounds of solid steel chain and a BIG TIRE”

A proverb quoted by Terrance Joseph Kosikar as a brief statement of his approach to bring more awareness to ‪#‎ptsd‬

Today, we arrived at our tires to find someone has stolen all of our chains. Who would do something like this? Why would someone do something like this?

Our normal reaction would be stand up and fight, get to the bottom of it and bury these people, but those days are over now and we are on a new path, a new journey and with this test that the universe has thrown at us, we humbly sat and prayed for those people who stole our chains.

Within an hour of our forgiving these thieves, a Native man emerged out of the woods. He’s from the St’át’imc Nation. He brings us something very special that the native people call “st`wan”, wind dried salmon. Mr Lendard Adolf also brought us apples and left us a few dollars for eggs and bread to eat this week.

Hours later a man named Brian Edwards of the St’át’imc Nation brought the Lion and the Wolf, 2 cases of bottled water to keep us hydrated for our journey.

You see, when you take a few minutes each day to thank the universe and be grateful to mother nature and the land we walk on, and forgive those who do us wrong… only good things can come of it.

VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to the members of St’át’imc Nation for feeding the Lion, the Wolf and an ol English Bulldog.

Please show your respect and support to St’át’imc Nation by SHARING THIS POST
