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

Fact Four

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.

Fact Five

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.

Fact Six

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.
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 response.
