MrEdd + I went to DHS to get some moneyhelp. At 7:30 MrEdd came in + sat in the corner of the room with only 1 male. He did fine even though he had panic attacks seemed like continually. I wrote in my journal. We finally got to go up front + I had to speak. Of course I did. Then we had to come back at 10:30. The room was packed.
Mr Edd hid behind the door
- at least he did not bolt + try to come back later. We waited until 11 or 11:30 until we were seen. Mr Edd was super nervous.
But no need, we saw a Christian interveiwer + she understood everything. I was so glad.
When we were finally done, we still had to come back + pick up the card. So at 1:00 we stepped back in + waited another 35 mins..At first Mr Edd hid behind the door, but the chairs we used in the begining was open w/o men. I caught MrEdd thumping his head hard enough for me to hear.
I stopped him, even though he whined like a little kid at first. Now we are here!!!!
Really in the long run he is handling flashbacks a good amount better. I think that week + a day in the hospital helped MrEdd to not hurt himself while having flashbacks.
Sorry about rambling, I needed to get out this day.
FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!But we made it.
WITH MUCH LOVE,
