I have been a member of ICU steps for a little while. Nearly five years ago I spent 10 days in ICU, one month in the hospital, and lost the use of my lower left leg all due to severe sepsis. I was also diagnosed with PTSD from the ICU. Even now, although not as frequently, I'll have a panic attack or flashback.
I write in a journal, draw, build with Lego, talk to a therapist, to stop a panic attack I keep a little paper with me that says, "It's okay, just breathe slowly. " To stop flashbacks I hold my sleeve up to my nose and smell it for 10 seconds (it brings my mind back to the present).
I am always looking to add things.
What helped and continues to help you?
