Car Crash Follow Up
As promised, I am providing a follow up on the car accident. As mentioned in my previous post I have been participating in Physiotherapy and Therapy. I am currently attending Physio to help heal my ankles and upper and lower back. I have been going twice a week since my previous post. My doctor uses a series of techniques to help heal my injured body parts. My muscles have been feeling better, but I think the emotional piece is what is bothering me the most.
Originally I thought that I was doing better than I actually was. This was not the case. In actuality, I was so focused on my mom and dads feelings to notice what was going on with me. My first time doing EMDR with my therapist we worked on the main piece that was bothering me, which was that I could have done something to stop her from hitting us which from your perspective seems silly. I realize that now since I have been doing this emotional healing. Recently, I had missed a few sessions of Therapy and my negative emotions began to bottle up which made me feel really sad and depressed. I found since the accident I no longer enjoy the things I used to enjoy. Spending time with friends and family is not as meaningful and I don't like getting up and doing things. I recently had a session and i have been feeling much better.
Since I have been feeling better my mood has been better and my anxiety has decreased. I still have some bad days, but don't we all. I do my very best to stay positive. I have been spending more time doing the things I enjoy and the fun has been coming back. I find distractions help. I enjoy painting and binge watching shows on Netflix, my personal favourite is The Office. I have hope and I know it is only uphill from here.
