PTSD and it's Symptoms (what you got?)
« on: August 28, 2013, 05:29:07 PM »
I got:

Nightmares
Free forming anxiety
Explosive Anger (RAGE)
Fears
Depression
Hypervigilance
Agoraphobia (house aint burning, no desire to leave)
Low Self Worth (oddly accompanied with an exaggerated sense of self worth)
Racing thoughts
Spotty memory
Difficulty in Relationships
Headaches
Suspicious (Distrusting)
Suicidal thoughts
Dissociative features

But other than that, I am the epitome of mental health!
Thanks Straight Inc, no telling where I might have been if it weren't for your warehouses!

How about you? What you got?

Though, I do not like to be in new surroundings, I am comfortable

Yeah, I am of the opinion that OCD (or CDO...alphabetical order and all) has some some correlations with PTSD. It may not be in the DSM-V....but still.

I tend to pigeonhole, categorize, section, segment things in my mind. If things exceed the scope of those boundaries....ewwwww, can be ugly (if only tween my own two ears)

I also have ADHD (minus the hyperactivity) and I think a touch of OCD. Yes, things must be absolutely perfect, but only for a moment or two. Look, a skwerl....I like toast

I have to count things and turn them a certain amount of times.
I have to turn things to face a certain way..like my water bottle label or currently ma beer..
I run late to work because of some things I do..but can't give myself more time in the morning or
I'll find more things to be OCD over.
OCD started about the same time as anxiety and panic.
Over the years it's progressed and changed.
Things I used to do I don't now, but it used to be just a couple things and now it's affecting my time and pisses me off.
Crazy.........
 ::OMG::

Not a bad read. The title of the link threw me off for a few days and skipped over reading it but when I did read it I was slightly impressed.


I strongly feel OCD is a symptom of PTSD. Part of PTSD that hinders a person is the need to control one owns future to escape future trauma's.
The OCD action does not have to reflect a past trauma either. I think and I don't know jack shit but as long as the inner part of a triggered person is doing something that reflects control of some kind, put the sub conscience of a persons mind at ease a tad bit. Not sure if that makes sense.

Personally I did go through a period for about 10 years of facing my cans all the same way. In fact I just went and looked at all my cans. They are indeed all in rows, facing forward. Chuckling at myself. I guess I got so used to facing them forward so long, the act is just natural now.
That was a interesting observation of myself just now. Chuckling

The phrase PTSD implies mental illness when it truly is a healthy reaction to toxic environment.

They (the "mental health community," or whatever they're called) like using the word "disorder" a lot.

Yeah...a friend posted on facebook...a comment...that PTSD is not really a healthy reaction...he said...because not everybody gets PTSD from a given set of events...he said if it was healthy, more people would get it.

I want to take apart the statement, "If it [PTSD] were healthy, more people would get it," to show how unfounded in logic it is;
I think a majority of survivors of Straight do have PTSD (whether they realize it or not), healthy reaction, or not...

That wasn't the statement I was referring to as being illogical; it was the one above, saying that "more people would get it if it were a healthy reaction," when more people DO get it (the premise is skewed.) Whether it is perceived as a healthy reaction or not seems almost moot.. though I agree that PTSD is a healthy (or we could say, natural) reaction to that process.
