The road to emotional recovery can be a long one. Not everyone recovers at the same rate and not everyone recovers in the same way. Finding your way back to “normal” can be a struggle and we want you to know that you are not alone. There are many people who struggle with emotional recovery.
Did you know that you can get PTSD from being in a car accident? Whether the accident caused physical harm, emotional harm, or both, seeking help is important.
At Paul Padda Law, our motto is, “It’s not about the injury, it’s about the recovery”. You can’t heal if you only focus on your physical injury, and it can be hard to break the negative mental cycle if you are all alone. So, try something new, different, and get your life back on track.
Your emotional recovery could start with Animal Therapy. This type of therapy includes animal assisted therapy with animal assisted activities. These activities help people recover from, or cope with health problems, whether it is Cancer, Mental Health, or PTSD.
There are many benefits to being around animals, and we believe that every type of therapy should be presented to our clients. Therapies that revolve around animals can help you with increased self-esteem, increased ability to care for yourself, reduce anxiety, grief, depression and help you get out of isolation to name a few.
Road to Recovery with Family
While you are on the road to recovery you may encounter issues with family members and your friends. They may wonder why you are taking so long to heal, or why you have stopped doing the things you used to do. This is normal, and with time, hopefully they too will learn that emotional recovery can take the same amount of time, or longer, to heal as a broken leg or arm. You have been injured and healing takes time.
In the meantime, do what you can. Walk if you can’t run. Float if you can’t swim. If you don’t feel up to mountain climbing, or motorcycle riding, or whatever you used to do before your personal injury, take this opportunity to maybe try something new. Try Animal Therapy, or take up painting, or join a book club. Therapy doesn’t necessarily need to be in a room filled with other people, or a one on one talk with a therapist. There are a variety of therapies available. Horseback riding, petting cats, having a service dog, can do wonders for your emotional recovery.
Sometimes the first step is the hardest when it comes to getting help. Let Paul Padda Law assist you in moving forward. Learn more about Alternate Emotional Therapies and start the healing process on your personal road to emotional recovery.
