I've been having a really good week, minimal triggers and we have been really good. Tonight, my husband has his Reserves long drill where he is going out into the woods with his squadron and basically they are setting up a bare base for training. Well, he's going to be gone from tonight through the whole weekend and have minimal to no contact with me during this time. We have been doing so good but I am starting to get really anxious. Like logically I know it's a work thing and i should have nothing to worry about but i think that feeling of, well, I didn't think I had anything to worry about before sets in. It all got triggered because he got a text message from another firefighter, and I didn't recognize the name, and it was basically just giving info about the trip. I asked him who it was and he was just like "oh it's just another firefighter in the unit, they just said they're not going." Alarms went off in my head.."THEY said THEY aren't going? who is this person, what's THEIR name?" He was like " I don't want you to worry, yes, she's a female but I really am only communicating with her because of this trip, she was the POC." trigger trigger trigger. I immediately started getting worried and he could tell and he was trying to be super reassuring and i was trying to not let it take over me but I felt like I couldn't control it at all.

Yeah that would be a problem for me. I know my husband works with a couple of females but I know the ones he has contact with mostly. I would be right there with you in high anxiety. This really sucks what they do to us. Could he have given you more information or a heads up about her.

That’s what I said too. Like, ok you “thought” it was harmless and you were only reaching out for work stuff but nothing right now to me is harmless. Everything is suspect. We’re still so fresh in this recovery. He apologized and said he would do better. But now I’m just stuck with anxiety for the next 5 days.
