or Coping

It is 'normal' to have difficulty managing your feelings after major traumatic events. However, if you don't deal with the stress, it can be harmful to your mental and physical health. Here are some tips for coping in these difficult times:

-- Talk about it. By talking with others about the event, you can relieve

rebuilding effort. Helping other people can give you a sense of purpose

in a situation that feels 'out of your control.'

-- Avoid drugs and excessive drinking. Drugs and alcohol ma
