Default Re: When does PTSD start?

It's good to talk about what you experienced, not so good if you hide how you feel and start to isolate with it. Remind yourself that you were smart and knew what to do and reacted in a way that saved your child's life. Remind yourself everything is ok now and you can go back to being the good parent that you are. It would help if you could get some help though so you can get some rest, do you have any family that can help you out so you can get some good naps in? Sleep is important when it comes to our brain healing and we all know that caring for young children can lead to experiencing some sleep deprivation.

Remember, your child survived, the trauma of it all has passed and you are all safe now, keep reminding yourself of that (((Caring Hugs)))
