There are different types of flashbacksEach 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.
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.
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.

my time and to escape
STORY CONTINUED….soon, quoted notes at presentUnder DevelopmentEveryone 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.

slipped. I type slower, speak slower, think at a snail’s pace. I’m Life shapeshifted by Post Traumatic Stress, bastard-
