ngd- This is the most complete discussion I’ve seen in a popular medium…

Human brains are hardwired to react viscerally to traumatic events. They then store those emotions in our central nervous, so that when we feel and experience similar future events, we will be alerted to new potential dangers.

Emotional flashbacks, experienced by those living with complex post-traumatic stress disorder, are sudden and horrific, often prolonged, attacks from past highly traumatic events. Although these flashbacks are somewhat different than those experienced in post-traumatic stress disorder, both are very intense, confusing, fear-laden attacks of sorrow, and rage that causes terror and despair.

In this article, we shall examine the history of PTSD and how it has aided our understanding of how trauma affects the brain and thank those who serve or have served in our military forces.
