  1. In the immediate, take care of your physical health. Be safe, and get as close as you can to water, food, shelter, and medical attention.
  2. Once you’ve stabilized, allow your internal process to run its course, and do what you need to do to heal internally and gather yourself emotionally. Give yourself and those you love a lot of grace.
  3. Read and assess, in as level-headed of a way as possible, your real risk of experiencing repeated events like the one you just experienced, and compare that risk to the variety of risks that you unthinkingly take on every day as a matter of course.
