How do you handle extreme triggers, that you do not have any oppertunity to avoid? Heres the situation. I have PTSD after going on too many calls where people I have known (including my best friend) have killed themselves. So anytime I see, smell, or feel death, it is a huge trigger for me. This morning I got a call for a suicidal person...no problem, i'm usually good at talking people down. Not this time. The stupid guy went and pulled the trigger as soon as I walked in the room. I stood there stunned, flashbacks overtaking my mind, not able to even move, covered in this guy's body matter. So in a situation like that, I cannot remove myself from the situation, as I still have a job I have to do. Are there any great ways to just disconnect from yourself just temporarily to get through that situation or something? I dont know...I'm kind of at a loss right now
