We have to remember that our sanity isn’t compromised when we get triggered. It’s quite literally a matter of biology and psychology—our brains on PTSD.

When you start responding to trauma triggers—for example, overreacting to an everyday situation—do you begin to think you’re crazy? I know I do sometimes. But you and I have to remember that our sanity isn’t compromised when we get triggered. It’s quite literally a matter of biology and psychology—our brains on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

PTSD is a normal response to trauma,
just as bleeding is a normal response to being stabbed.

Isn’t this a great analogy? So often we feel like we’re insane. And many of us experience a deep sense of shame because we’ve developed PTSD. A psychological wound needs to be treated with the same level seriousness and compassion that a physical wound would. Would you feel ashamed for crying if you were bleeding all over the place? Probably not. You’d see it as a natural reaction to pain. Well, our brain’s response to trauma deserves the same response of kindness and understanding.

Now before we get into the nitty-gritty of PTSD, I want to reflect on some of the misinformation that floats around about it.

You may think of PTSD as an emotional disorder, but it really isn't. PTSD show up in your brain, and actually influences how your brain functions.
