JapanZen,

That's a really good one! Last week my T was suggesting that one exercise that is good for grounding and creating safety when a survivor feels a flashback or panic attack coming on is to repeat a reassuring phrase he has composed and memorized in advance.

This sort of thing would be perfect. \:\)

Much love,
Larry

Sakura will bloom;
Maybe I shall dream of it.
Anyway it's good.

A young man survives
pain hurt and was wrongly touched
a strong man arrives
