It is the worst! I would allow her some time to process what has happened. I will be praying for her.

I hope your company offers therapy! That can be very traumatizing for a team member! So sorry to hear this!

Have her play tetris, the video game. Google the topic of tetris and trauma therapy! It’s fascinating!

Oh no, I’m so sorry! I remember my first and it was horrible and an image I’ll never forget, give her the time she needs to process it especially right here at the holidays.

Thanks, all. We use a 3rd party Mgmt company, which is her actual employer. But I will make sure she is given the time and resources as so many of you kindly suggested.

Does the company have an EAP? People process events differently. She may say she's fine, and even seem fine, but a person to call if it sneaks up on her would be good. For me, I've found a good cry and a glass of wine helps.

Let her know she can talk to you, but don't push her. My first was rough, and I tried not to think about it, the more ppl pushed me to talk the worse it was. Give her a day off, and I second the scentsy idea.

That's my biggest fear, is to find someone. Thankfully our company policy is to not do wellness checks ourselves. If there is a legit concern the police are called to do that

The police were called. They refused to go in without the agent.
