The Invisible Injury
One Client’s Experience
A traumatic event can extend beyond just the physical injuries. In addition, a traumatic event can also effect not only the injured, but also loved ones and family members.
In a very significant case, a loved one witnessed their sibling get hit by a vehicle. The sibling suffered physical injuries. However, the witness’s injuries were just as debilitating and severe. She developed flashbacks, unwarranted feelings of guilt, and depression. In order to process the event, she turned to painting.
Although the artist will certainly never forget what happened, she has made a full recovery. Her sibling has also recovered, and the two are very close. The artist continues to paint and is doing well. With her permission, she shares her painting with the message that individuals are not alone in recovering from a traumatic event.
If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic event, Brian Elston Law understands.
