I'm good at handling lots of pain.
I excel at managing trauma, dealing with the unexpected, and responding to a crisis.
And I keep a very calm and cool head in a state of emergency.
But when the dust has settled, and all that remains is to quietly rest, while the body is allowed to repair its wounds and the psyche recovers from the wild ups and downs, I am at a loss.
I struggle with the slow stillness of recovery.
