Beautifully articulated. I can relate to the physicality you describe. Trauma has so many levels!

Around 1967 my brother crossing street for a newspaper for dad. He was killed. A few years later, at 1am walking n hitching home, no cars, so when I heard a car, just as I turned to put my thumb out, I think the pickup truck had stalled as he pulled over. Barely coasting, I went up on the hood and slid to ground. No one around until I saw police making their rounds, at a small shopping stores. I remember they put a bag on my leg, kept passing out, bleeding inside. I have thought about my dad being called to hospital for second son and last rites.

Years later, well my brother was like, you can't go to sleep if I can't he says! Always wanted to go first. Sometimes a year older sometimes a year and a half.

Wondered was he. . . your turn now brother. If I have to die

Molly really like your writing. Love n Kindness

Blessings Miss

Thank you for a good read! I wonder, do the powerful good memories have a place in us too? Like you, I have had flash backs to trauma, but the powerful good things have a milder sort of bodily flash. Just a thought.

So beautifully written! Loved every word. And I relate to your experience even thought my two accidents weren’t as severe. The body really does remember. I have all kinds of anxiety I wish I didn’t have.
