Painful Anniversaries

9/11 PTSD survivors need to plan how to cope during Painful Anniversaries.  But I also believe that allowing ourselves to cry and grieve past hurts is healing.  Acknowledging something happened was terrible reminds us that it really was not our imagination.  9/11 has a special significance for me because that is when I found out I had cancer the week before.  Over on my other blog I share my story and remembrance: http://weareone-ruth.blogspot.com/2015/09/milestone-remembrance.html

Be safe…..

Take time to grieve losses…..

Schedule time to cry or meditate or sit quietly.

Keep a friends or therapists phone number close by…..use it if you need to.

Draw what you are feeling.

Acknowledge that you feel what you feel and you have the right to feel that way.
