Who has PTSD?
We hear a lot of talk about PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in combination with Veterans, but everybody can have or get PTSD, that has been through or seen a traumatic situation. Some examples are police men/women, fire fighters, first responders (EMT), people who have been abused during their childhood, rape victims, accident victims, people who have seen traumatic situations, people who lost a loved one, etc.
Where Does PTSD Come From and What Does it Feel Like?
PTSD can come from any traumatic and/or life threatening situation that is not properly processed emotionally. Pushing away the memories of the trauma for example with medication, only makes it worse. It is like putting a bandage on a bullet wound, you can’t see it anymore but it still hurts. The unresolved emotions will keep coming up and when not attended to they can get worse and worse. The human condition is to process emotions. When you don’t process them, your internal system will keep showing you that you need to process the emotions until you neutralize them. Our sub conscious will attract to different situations where we experience the same feelings until we have processed them and our feelings are neutral. When we are unaware that we have emotions to process, our life is not going the way we want. We have limiting behavior.
Don’t Let Yourself Suffer!
When a medical professional tells you you have to learn to live with a condition for the rest of your life, it doesn’t mean you HAVE to suffer for the rest of your life. They just don’t have the right tools to resolve the issue. They might not even know there are tools to eliminate the issue. They only have the tools that they learned to use, like prescribing drugs, or telling you that you have to cope. It would be like asking a butcher to make a cabinet for you. He has different knowledge and wouldn’t know how to make a cabinet, but when you go to a cabinet maker there is no problem. You will get your cabinet. There are people who have different tools that can help you to eliminate your issues.
