Memories

When PTSD strikes I return to the past.

It is hard to remain in the present.

§

I have to try to latch on to the present, and fulfill the duties required of me.

§

I have to manage the emotions which threaten to overwhelm me.

If I am out, then I have to try to find a safe place to go to, to calm myself down.

If I am at home, I might go into the garden.

§

I light candles and incense, both of which help to calm me down.

I make a cup of tea.
