This when I feel ready will be part of the site that may be my notes and diary
of my last 20 years of this debilitating illness, I will be sorting through notes
and other documents to help me see what has happened. This illness has
lost me almost half my life some great friends, family and work….now in 2017
what will come next……….well there is more to come..after 20 years of
unfulfilled life is to be that our illustrious government has come up with the
ultimate solution, if you have a mental illness and you try to help yourself
you may find yourself in the courts…but maybe the threat alone could
instigate the self induced “euthanasia” of this and other disabled or
disadvantaged souls by there own hand, we shall see
There are different types of flashbacks
Each person with PTSD has his or her own trigger that can cause a
flashback. The type of flashback can also differ from person to person.
Some people experience extremely vivid flashbacks, where they are
essentially transported back to the traumatic event, while others don’t
experience flashback at all. There is also a middle-ground flashback,
where people don’t vividly picture the event, but suddenly feel
overwhelmed and anxious and are unsure why.
PTSD patients with solid social lives and interests may suddenly lose
interest in favourite hobbies, activities, and friends that they used to
be very passionate about. Seeking out risky behaviour can also be a
form of escapism through drug or alcohol abuse, or thrill seeking.
It’s very common for those with PTSD to try to numb their feelings.
After all, it’s hard to suffer pain when you don’t feel any emotion at
all. Emotional numbing often leads to the gradual withdrawal and
eventually the complete isolated from social circles.
This state of constant fear and paranoia can cause extreme PTSD-
associated irritability, indecisiveness, and a total lack of concentration,
sleeplessness, and difficulty maintaining personal relationships.
“Don’t let the bastards grind you down”
Everyone deals with stress at some point or other in life. Whether in
response to a physical threat or to a perceived social or emotional risk,
the stress response is the body’s way of preparing to face or flee from
danger. It involves a series of physical, psychological, and behavioural
reactions that enable people to deal with the stressor and then return to
their normal behaviors.
However, for people who struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder, or
PTSD, as a result of being exposed to extreme danger, threat, violence, or
death, the stress response is heightened and can lead to physical and
psychological distress far beyond what is experienced in a normal stress
response. In addition, people with PTSD tend to struggle with symptoms in
situations where a person without the disorder would not have a stress

For me and others who can’t or won’t see!
“Denial and minimizing is often seen in genuine PTSD and, hence, should be a
target of detection and measurement.”
