I met a woman recently who described her escape from the Camp Fire on the Ridge a year ago and within just thirty seconds she was weeping.
She described trying to get her two 100 pound dogs in the car and losing her husband just prior to the fire as well. The trauma that this new friend of mine has experienced continues to wash over her almost a year later.
When I asked her if I could bring her to a workshop on trauma, she immediately said yes.
I didn’t even get a chance to fully describe what will be happening at the event. She knows she needs to work through more of this excruciating pain. It is so healthy that this woman is acknowledging her grief, pain and how overwhelmed she is with even the smallest of tasks.
