Post-traumatic Stress Disorder can occur following a life-threatening event like military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or violent personal assaults like rape. Most survivors of trauma return to normal given a little time. However, some people have stress reactions that don’t go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. These individuals may develop PTSD. People who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, and feeling emotionally numb.

These symptoms can significantly impair a person’s daily life.PTSD is marked by clear physical and psychological symptoms. It often has symptoms like depression, substance abuse, problems of memory and cognition, and other physical and mental health problems. The disorder is also associated with difficulties in social or family life, including occupational instability, marital problems, family discord, and difficulties in parenting.

Memoirs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

How neurotypicals think triggers work.

I had a traumatic experience but I’m 100% fine and never think about it unless I see a neurotypical-approved trigger then flashbacks occur and have a horrible panic attack.

How triggers actually work.

I had a traumatic experience and the long-time effects of trauma influence my life every day seriously, no one forgets about a traumatic experience (unless they repress those memories completely). A trigger is something that makes those memories resurface. Triggers can be anything; words, phrases, smells, symbols, colors, things that seem ridiculous to you but to me have a connection to my traumatic experience that I am not obligated to explain just because you think I’m “tossing the word trigger around like it’s nothing”.

Reactions to triggers can range from slight discomfort to severe panic attacks; none of these reactions are less valid because they’re not bad enough. My general mental health influences how I respond to a trigger. The same trigger might not bother me on a good day but make me suffer from paranoia and anxiety on a bad day. It is still always a trigger.

Veterans are not the only ones suffering from PTSD “war” is not the only real trigger. Mocking triggers (no matter how silly they seem to you) means mocking and disrespecting everyone who had a traumatic experience and asks people to tag triggers because they don’t want the memories to resurface more than they already do anyway you’re not my therapist. You have no say in what triggers me and how I am supposed to deal with that.

So if I ask people to tag penguins, but don’t feel comfortable telling everyone that the reason for this is that they are my abuser’s favorite animals which they often talked about (when they weren’t hitting me, locking me up and letting me starve, and telling me I deserve it), you have absolutely no right to make fun of that, bye.

¿Me sigues?

¿Porqué dudas de tí?, ¿Porqué tienes miedo?, ¿La soledad te trajo apoyo?¿No es más fácil conocer a alguien en una Iglesia o cualquier otro lugar donde haya buyisio?

¿Porqué nos escondemos detras de mascaras falsas?, ¿No estamos a gusto con nosotros mismos?, ¿Porqué?
Nosotros somos seres visuales,  primero la vista mira su entorno, la parte occipital del cerebro comienza a discriminar las imágenes que esta procesando conforme a la información que haya obtenido de experiencias anteriores.

En nuestras mentes comenzamos harcernos de expectativas que podrán o no, decepcionarnos basado en lo que inicialmente observamos.

Si cómo lucimos no es importante, porqué, entonces, tendríamos que vestirse bien para una entrevista, la Iglesias o una gala, si lo que observamos de primera intención no fuera tan importante para nuestra sociedad.

Queremos agradar a los demás porque   tenemos la nescesidad pertenencia. Decimos que somos felices viviendo solos, cuando en realidad no lo estamos y no lo queremos estar. Porque la incistencia de contradecirnos palabras contra acciones.

Porque la necesidad de acudir a las redes sociales, no es porque tenemos la ideación de tener a alguien que nos escuche y nos comprenda. El deseo de agradar a otros y tener sentido de pertenencia.

Éstos events o conducta nos persiguen desde la prehistoria.  Entonces porqué decimos que la apariencia no es tan importante cuando en realidad, si lo es. Existe un refran que dice; el habito no hace al monje pero lo distingue,  ¿Será esto cierto?
