FIGHT AND FLIGHT RESPONSE

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”

and more

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

see

hear

feel

works for you:

use it.

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
