cptsd and brain damage
« on: March 16, 2019, 06:13:11 PM »
In a thread here in the forum I came across Athena Moberg. I found this video today about C-PTSD and the brain.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5m2qVgKgcM

It hit me very hard. All the damage that has been done. I did a bit of Internet research in order to find out if the things they say in the video are well researched. Well, it seems to be the case. I just ordered the book "The body keeps the score" to get more information on how trauma affects the body and brain.
Although learning all this was hard, it is also a source of hope. And I love understanding myself better :-) I have a feeling that I want to rush to help me.

Sorry to hear it hit you hard

but glad you appreciate that learning is useful in recovering

(the book - body knows the score - is brilliant)

  • CPTSD is an injury, not an illness.

I felt hugely validated by the book! It's one of a few books I keep on my nightstand. Peter Levine has written books on how trauma affects the body, I have one that I need to read.

I love this! There is hope for healing. Some of the damage in our brains can be undone.

Cheering you on.  :cheer:
