Our expert says:
Maybe one lesson is the value of organizing one's bag ? Maybe a small bag to sit on top of the debris, containing the stuff you might need to urgently put your hand on.
From your description, you handled the sitation wisely and effectively.
Now, the symptoms you describe are typical and NORMAL - indeed, not to have some such reactions would be odd. Fortunately, while these are common reactions, they usually fade in the first couple of weeks. If the flashbacks and distress continue, do see a shrink for assessment and some counselling.
As for the details, actually, eye-witness testimony is far less accurate than most people expect it to be. And the sort of growing uncertainty you describe is also normal.
Uncomfortable though it is, currently you're sufering an attack of Normal.
