Tell Us: What's Been Traumatic for You?

Denise
lonely-821489_640We think of trauma as something that affects our carees.

I think we experience trauma, too, because of what we see happen to our carees.

After watching my mom fall in December, I couldn't fall asleep for several nights because I could picture the fall and couldn't stop the what-if questions. (What if I didn't watch her leave? What if she had fallen and laid on the sidewalk for hours?)

When I heard a thud and a groan early Thursday morning, I rushed to get to my dad, who I found unresponsive, laying face first against carpeted stairs. He had fallen against something soft but he landed in such a way that I thought he broke his neck. He did regain consciousness before the ambulance arrived but those first few minutes were awful.

I wonder about your traumatic experiences. What have you seen that you can't shake? What did you watch that haunts you?
