Coping With Traumatic Incidents That Puncture Mental Skin

The best thing you can do may be to take some time off to reflect quietly on what you went through. Reconnect with friends and family who are important to you. Talk about your experiences if you want to but don't carry on if you feel the other person's response is not helpful. Don't feel obliged to talk about the events or answer questions about them just because others are curious.
