Cup 1Whether you realise it or not, everybody has this thing called “good stress” in their life, which consists of such things as getting out of bed, day to day tasks, going to work, cooking dinner, etc etc. No problems with that one.Cup 2The obvious, when something goes wrong, or is really hindering you, is generally classified as “bad stress”, which consists such things as paying bills, money, relationships, getting fired from your job, etc etc etc. Everybody gets bad stress at some stage within their day; it just depends on the amount, and the person themself.Now, as you can see, Cup 2 represents a normal person, and with both good and bad stress. They still have lots of room in their cup without overflowing (exploding, rage, anger, etc etc). A normal person can take a lot of stress within their daily life, before being pushed over the edge.Cup 3 (PTSD Sufferers)Now whilst we still have both good and bad stress, there is now this thing called “PTSD” in our cup. The problem with that is that we still have the same amount of good and bad stress as everyone else, though we also have this big chunk of PTSD which contains our traumas and more.As you can see from this cup, with good stress and PTSD, you really don’t have much room for anything else. You can see by the “bad stress” representation at the top of the cup, it is quite small compared to Cup 2 – thus this is why something so small and insignificant can make someone with PTSD fly off the handle so quickly (anger). A little “bad stress” for a person with PTSD, and they overflow quite quickly compared to anyone else.

Cup 1

Whether you realise it or not, everybody has this thing called “good stress” in their life, which consists of such things as getting out of bed, day to day tasks, going to work, cooking dinner, etc etc. No problems with that one.

Cup 2

The obvious, when something goes wrong, or is really hindering you, is generally classified as “bad stress”, which consists such things as paying bills, money, relationships, getting fired from your job, etc etc etc. Everybody gets bad stress at some stage within their day; it just depends on the amount, and the person themself.

Cup 3 (PTSD Sufferers)

Now whilst we still have both good and bad stress, there is now this thing called “PTSD” in our cup. The problem with that is that we still have the same amount of good and bad stress as everyone else, though we also have this big chunk of PTSD which contains our traumas and more.

You are amazing.

You are beautiful.

You are alive.


And that, my friend, is reason enough to celebrate =)

I HATE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING

Which is exactly why I finished it by November 1st (I was a little late this year).
PTSD anxiety attacks brought on by too many people and Christmas music are some of the worst ones I had all year.

But I forgot to get something for someone and I had to go out and buy it -_- Meh!

This is 100% how I get when someone tells me to calm down. I’m either going to calm down or I’m not and telling me to is not going to help!!

Does anyone else with PTSD or past abuse listen to music or leave the TV on at night?

Because they’re afraid that it’ll happen again or that the slence is their enemy?

If yes, do you have another reason or does that just about cover it?

This tends to be my friends when I wake them up orver an anxiety or nightmare issue…

You lose your “manhood” when you raise your hand or voice at your mother, wife, sister, or daughter. How can you possibly even think hurting someone, physically or verbally, increases your masculinity? I mean seriously, get your priorities straight.

—From the abused

Sometimes people do not realize the significance of wehat they are saying or telling to another person. I will fully admit to having a full-blown freakout on several occasions for such reasons. I have realized over time that sometimes it needs to be made clear to the other party that it is not their story to tell and so they should not be telling it to a single soul.
