Even though some time has passed since the terrorist attacks, many of us may still be reacting to the event. You may be replaying pictures of the attacks in your mind or be reluctant to resume flying or be in tall buildings. You may feel angry, sad, nervous, or even numbed. You may feel vulnerable or unsafe. You may have a hard time concentrating or finding the motivation to perform daily activities, have trouble sleeping, or think about using alcohol more often than usual. You may be reminded of past losses or painful experiences or worry about how to deal with someone close to you.

Talking with friends, family, and coworkers is helpful. Give yourself time to feel out of sorts, anxious, or upset. The distress usually diminishes in time -- a normal process after such a violent event.

Counseling can also help. The Faculty/Staff Assistance Office is a free and confidential service for the BU community. Please call 353-5381.
