Sitting In The Waiting Room At The Ptsd Clinic
So we have a new building that our PTSD clinic has moved into. The entire front is glass the whole front of the building. In front of of the big window that is the wall are chairs for us to wait in, with our backs to the windows.
Now this puzzles me, as many of us who have PTSD like to have our back to the wall. So since the new building is here I spend my time in the waiting room trying to decide if they purposely designed it this way as some kind of subliminal exposure therapy or is it that no one really gave it any thought. It just seems odd to me.
So funny thing this last visit. I'm sitting in the waiting room pondering the whole glass question when another veteran (tough looking, think biker) comes out this side door and takes a seat by me. He says "I don't like this new system" and I'm like "We got a new system?" and before he can answer they call him in, just before he leaves he says "I don't like these locked doors" and I say "I don't like all this glass" his response "Hear ya" and so that was my latest visit to the PTSD clinic.
