It snowed here today.  Also it's much colder.

There are birds everywhere.  :D  Big flock of mourning doves and some sparrows around the fly-through feeder.  Huge flock of sparrows and two male cardinals around the hopper feeder.  Various birds fluttering around the suet cage.  \o/ 

Measuring Trauma

While researching for poetry today, I found this amazing page that explains how to measure trauma. It gives a bunch of scales to indicate how much or how long things affected a trauma survivor.  It covers the event, internal experience, and support.  Some factors are static, while others could change over time.  If you don't know why you (or someone else) feel terrible about something, this might help.

EDIT: A later, expanded version is here.
