THIS FOR ALL THE PTSD SUFFERERS WHO ARE TIRED OF BEING TOLD:
“GET OVER IT”
“FACE YOUR FEARS”
“YOU ARE OVER REACTING”
“THERE’S NO NEED TO REACT THIS WAY”
People don’t realize that our flight and flight response is dysfunctional
and if you fight your fight and flight response
it gets worse.
If concentrating on five things you can
works for you:
I have had an anxiety disorder from early childhood
undiagnosed until I was fifty.
In my day PTSD wasn’t acknowledge
Nor was PND
Plus neither women nor children had any rights.
To get to the point:
I would remember the song from “The King and I” and pretend that I was OK
And it worked.
Simple things often work
(I didn’t sing or whistle out loud just silently)
At teachers college the head of the Psychology Department told me what a “happy go lucky person” I was.
Fake until you make it 😛
Enjoy the day
