How to survive the Medieval Times
Advice with Lonnie!
I have lost a family member to a raid in a war. Knowing that you lost someone also, I wonder how did you get over it. My mother tells me that I am not eating as much and I keep staring into open space. I toss and turn at night and I have these dreams that seem so vivid of the day I lost my family member. I was there when I lost him. I was on an naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. He welcomed us in open arms and he brought us to his cabin. Then came a BOOM! He ran outside and for as to stay in the garden. We ducked and covered and heard a soldier yell "Japanese bombers!". We hard a plane shouting, diving and guns firing in response. Then all was quiet. We crept out and saw wounded soldiers including my family member. Please help me with my post-traumatic distress.
An answer from Lonnie!
I have lost my whole family in a fire. The way I got over my distress and my loss was to speak about it to you closest relatives and friends. I also wrote about my new life in poems. My sister also gave me a Bible to show me never to give up hope. The family member will always be there be there if you keep your memory of him in your heart. If you have a picture or relic of your family member, you can keep it with you at all times. The most common way for parents to help (if you tell them) is talking with you more and having more family time. Maybe these can help you get it over with.
