Crisis is Being Averted

I wish I could tell you my symptoms were gone, but I can’t. What I can say is that a good support team makes all the difference in the world! I’m still experiencing non stop flashbacks but with the help of my psychiatric team, I’m learning new tools to help lessen the severity. And I didn’t land in the mental hospital which is saying alot about how much growth and change I’ve gone through this passed year and a half. I’ve learned not to freak out and act impulsively, which is my usual go to. Instead I assess the situation and seek necessary help if I can’t handle it myself, which is what I did. I went to the emergency room and explained my situation and was given a medical and psych evaluation. They prescribed me a pill to help me calm down and relax and set me up with an appointment to talk to someone the following morning. Felt a little better after speaking with that therapist who in turn referred me to the psychiatrist for a possible med adjustment and I now have an appointment set up with my therapist tomorrow morning. I’m so proud that I have learned new and better ways to handle intense and horrible situations and that I had the where- with-all to stay calm and not panic. That’s GROWTH!! Patting myself on the back 🙂
