I have made some choices in recovery that I have not been beneficial. I'm working everyday to making good choices. Here are a couple that I made that I wanted to share with everyone.
1. Choose a physician
When choosing a doctor it's ok to ask their background in dealing with trauma. Find out of they are compassionate. I just made a switch to a doctor that has a reputation for being compassionate.
2. Choosing a Therapist
Make sure that the person you choose to get counsel from has experience with dealing with trauma. The person I go to now is a trauma survivor. She overcame and uses book knowledge as well the personal experience to help aid in recovery. It helps to see someone who has come through the same healing process that you may experience. The former person I went to wanted to know what " I found" rather do research on how to help me. It was a frustrating situation. I'm glad I made the change.
We have a right to heal and it helps to have people in your corner to aid in the process.
