Join us for a vulnerable episode where we discuss intrusive/invasive thoughts, and what our brains try and tell us after trauma (or stemming from PTSD) after a life altering accident. As “pre-injury” WAGS of SCI (we were with our partners prior to and through their SCI), many stages of healing have to happen until clarity and true peace can come. Working with thoughts like “Was this accident somehow my fault?” are common thought patterns as the brain tries to make sense of what happened, but this topic almost never discussed in this community. We would like to change that! In this episode we reveal our own individual situations where we navigated intrusive, incessant thoughts surrounding karmic retribution, punishment and more after our partners SCI. We then examine why this happens, why its so common and misunderstood, and how without proper transmutation, can cause lasting depression and anxiety.
