NAVIGATING MENTAL, PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL TRAUMA IS DAUNTING, because fear is the first reaction. When you are scared, you can't see other options. I've been there, I know. Through my experience I've learned the best advise is to slow down. Center yourself. There are a multitude of options on the healing path. Take 5, deep, slow breaths before making any decision. In fact, wait at least 24 hours. Remember, when we are in fear mode, blood from our frontal lobe gets redirected to the amygdala (fight or flight brain), which means we can't think. Our vision becomes narrow, and we are unable to see alternatives to our immediate danger. Thus, we pass on all of our power to the medical community. If only 3-6% of the population are involved with clinical trials, there may be limited information determining treatment plans. It is CRITICAL that you inform yourself as much as possible. Knowledge is power. Trust your inner knowing, tune in.
