I had a lot of intrusive recollections at work today. Every time I would hit my hand on something and see the red...Well, I managed to get through the day without incident. I was really happy that it turned out so well. I just kept on thinking of my daughter. I am glad that I now have this new coping mechanism to keep me in the here and now. I hope this passes soon though. I could do without having to remember these garish and bloody 'film clips'. I have been really careful how I respond to things to make sure that the PTSD isn't coming through at work and that is just straight-up exhausting. Oh well. Tomorrow's another day, and every day's a new day!
As I continue my life with PTSD, I will share my challenges and discoveries on this blog.
