I don't know this PTSD is do difficult to deal with. I'm an intelligent lady. I know about workings of the brain. Know hippocampus & amigdilla aren't working properly. I know about fight or flight. I'm learning to overcome some of my triggers. I'm learning distraction techniques. The last thing that you think of once you've had a trigger is any distraction technique. In a perfect world it would work as it's supposed to in text books. It's a complex mind we are working with.
Depression lurks like a dark shadow with it's wispy fingers trying to draw me in. If it succeeds the head goes into a spiral of negativity & before you know it your lost to depression. I'm trying so hard to stay out of the dark but it's like creeping ivy!
It's twisting & winding in my head. Every time I get on top of it & seem to think I've got it worked out wham it floors me again. It's like a computer virus slowly eating away at my memory bank & wiping me out! Fk you PTSD you wont win I'll continue to educate myself & I will find a way to eradicate you!!!
