Recently I met with a new patient who seems to be suffering from an extreme case of post-traumatic stess disorder. They are very timid and afraid of many things. Fear seems to rule their life...I can relate on a different scale to this in a way. They are still filled with much uncertainty, but I believe they are beginning to trust me. Trust is the first step.
I've also been in contact with another new patient who claims "I'd give a therapist nightmares." Considering the state of my own mind, I wonder how true that may be? My curiosity led me to offer my services to this one, and so hopefully I'll get to see very soon how true it is.
