OUR NEXT WEBINAR
5 September 2022
Survival Anxiety can grip the lives of a burn survivor. It is the horrible realisation that in order to make it, you’re going to have to change. Maybe it’s the painful memories of that day or the same date every year.
It could be the smell of smoke, seeing a fire, seeing similar clothing to what you or your loved one wore that day or boiling the kettle. There can be many triggers to experiencing continuous anxiety attacks.
