Staying busy helps to keep PTSD at bay. My ex had a bout with PTSD after a serious car accident and I found keeping her busy with tasks helped her quite a bit. I tried not to let her mope around the house. She's totally fine now thankfully but it took a few years. I think your girl will pull through, it just takes a little time 👍
As some [moderated] just used this event to bait me in the controversial board, I just sat here and read this crap again. Thought I'd toss out a few updates because it's been a minute.
Medical: would healed up nicely, no long term health issues, big ass scar. I've been telling her it's sexy.
Financial: Hospital and trauma surgeon gave like 60% discount because no insurance. Full price would have been around $70k but discounts knocked it down to about $25k. Probably cheaper than actually having insurance but not going there. PA victims assistance people kept trying to engage us in getting the providers to respond to their request for documentation. No clue if anybody got paid and straight up don't care.
Jeep: idiot body shop didn't put the interior panel on right, took it back, still f'ed, might take a crack at it myself.
PTSD: still pretty bad. Within the last week I had to spend 20 minutes talking her out of the big planter she's building. Sounds of stray gun shots in the distance triggered her, she climbed in nearest cover available. Got fired from her job when she tried to hold them to the work accommodation she negotiated. Longer story, landed a better job. Still freaks out if I have to hit the brakes hard because traffic. It's wearing thin on both of us but counselors have provided effective tools.
Bird: doing just fine and recently started to fly.
felon boy: Bail dropped to $100k when homicide charge reduced to attempted. His sugar daddy / boy friend mortgaged property to spring him and my sources say they may have since split. Went right back to doing gay pay per view porn and one of my sources sent me a screen shot of him bragging about making bank. Criminal proceedings have stalled because when jumping from magisterial court to criminal court first step is a come to jesus meeting between the judge and the lawyers. This would be where the judge implores defense counsel not to clog up his docket with this crap. Keeps getting pushed back.
I've got names and addresses of the family members that drove from Youngstown for the first hearing. I've got the name, address, business address and a bunch of other info on sugar daddy. I've got a last known address for our young friend and as it's almost the one year anniversary, my offer to buy the first round still stands. Sitting in the hospital room, or shortly there after, I decided to make the trip every anniversary until satisfied. I expected to be visiting the prision but I'm not picky.
