PTSD- Fight, Flight, or Freeze Descent

Updated on July 27, 2017

Encouraging rhyming poem about a possible treatment option for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Neuroplasticity

I don't know the benefits of Neuroplasticity, other than what I have researched through reading, but I found the subject to be very interesting, and a hopeful, possibility!

Fight or Flight



PTSD can alter

the brain in a way

which can cause one

to behave in a

continual fight, flight,

or freeze descent;


The imprisonment

of Post Traumatic

Stress Disorder

can be caused

by many a traumatic,

or ongoing,

disastrous event.

Positive Stimulation


Neuroplasticity

is the ability

of the brain

to remold,

[or alter], itself,

from this damage,

by way of positive

stimulation;


Though, it might

take reliving of

painful events,

Neuroplasticity

might prove to be

the sufferer's

long, over-due

liberation!

I wish everyone, everywhere, Compassion, Kindness, Honesty, Truth, Inner-Strength, Honor, Perseverance, Integrity, and Love.

Hugs,

Tamara

      Your comments are there, I see them! At the very least it gives people hope that yes, they can overcome this and it's possible to do it without conventional medication help, although it does take time. Time is the great healer, as they say!

      Great way of wording it, very poetic. Yes, taking advantage of neuroplasticity can be very beneficial and I think it links is closely with epigenetics. I managed to overcome PTSD myself many years ago using alternative techniques.

      You are welcome, Jay, and thank you for reading it :-) I am so sorry for what your family has been through due to PTSD- all of you :-( War is always what first comes to my mind when I think of PTSD. I cannot even begin to imagine such a nightmare as combat, and am always saddened when I think of the soldiers in war, and what they must endure even long after the bloodshed has subsided.

      I have heard it said that when a person's mind wanders to another time, or place, that the mind actually thinks it is experiencing that very exact incident in the 'here and now'. The capabilities of the mind are amazing, but not always on a seemingly positive scale. Sometimes our minds can take us to some very dark places in which we'd rather not travel. But, like you said, "we must consciously form new habits of thought". (I think that "Consciously" is the key; we must make that purposeful effort).

      Thank you for writing this. My mother married her second husband and he had PTSD. He fought in the Korean war and suffered from PTSD. He, Jim, would become violent to my mother until she divorced him.

      I learned to forgive Jim because I realized he suffered All The Time. His violence towards us was simply an overflow of what was in his head 24/7.

      The solution, as you said, is to strengthen new neuro-pathways. We must consciously form new habits of thought.
