All progress is not lost

It can be scary to be re-traumatized. It’s not fun losing one’s ability to focus, be present, or concentrate. But if progress has already been made, the effects of new traumas don’t have to last as long as previous traumas.

It has been three days since hitting rock bottom in reaction to being re-traumatized. Already I feel I am where I was before the new trauma. Playing games that support attention and problem-solving might have helped. Also, prayer.

Next week the splint on my broken thumb will come off and I will go back to doing yoga and riding my motorcycle. Looking forward to being on two wheels again.
