but I can seek treatment here

Customer:

why not

Customer:

then I leave when I feel good

Customer:

Dr. Kaushik :

because while being in the trauma place you will get recoil of all those traumatic events which are associated with ptsd and are to be best forgotten.

Customer:

yes

Customer:

but I never tried good treatment

Customer:

as well as 10 guys didn't hit me

Customer:

it was just the feeling after it

Customer:

no one hit me that day

Dr. Kaushik :

I explain this to you with an example you see when a needle or thorn is continuously hurting a person then best treatment is to get that thorn out as soon as possible.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

ok what then?

Customer:

after that?

Customer:

what type of treatment you take?

Customer:

kijiji

Customer:

what type of treatment?

Dr. Kaushik :

but unfortunately you have a situation here where you are currently placed in the traumatic place so the treatment strategy is good so you better stick to it.

Customer:

I see

Customer:

but what if I can get out the problem here?

Customer:

is there a way that trauma stoped?

Customer:

no flashbacks nothing

Customer:

maybe by time

Customer:

I can get over it
