When we experience a trauma the world seems to stop. Nothing seems real. Adrenaline and fear can flow through our bodies, heightening our emotions and making us think or feel things we normally wouldn’t. Our body goes into shock and may choose to fight, flight, or freeze from the situation.
If you, or anyone you know, feels overwhelmed and unable to cope with emotions experienced from recent traumas please reach out. Help is available. Things may seem dark “at this moment”, please just take a minute and ask for help.
