“….PTSD begins as an adaptive reaction to life threatening or horrifying stressors. PTSD’s symptoms, like disturbing memories and flashbacks,sleep and memory problems, and feeling so emotionally on edge or shut-down that we find ourselves avoiding people or activities that used to be pleasurable, are classic stress reactions. They are absolutely normal when our survival is threatened, because they are the result of calls from our brain’s alarm to put everything else aside and mobilize our body to deal with the threats or dangers facing us.”
