Such an awesome word. Sounds something odd and weird. In a sense, it is. It is our brains ability to change. Scientist are learning that PTSD and CPTSD are forms of brain injuries. Some people feel doomed by this diagnosis. I felt relieved to have a name for my pain. It was no longer a shadow warrior that knocked me down over and over. PTSD/CPTSD is a reasonable reaction to an unreasonable situation. My daughter has traumatic brain injury from removal of a brain tumor. She is learning that TBI, PTSD and CPTSD all share similar symptoms, not identical but similar information helps each one. She shared a link to a video that shares the basics of neuroplasticity and to me the exciting news that I can change my brain and how I respond to the World. It is my on going project and I am making strides. I am in physical therapy and my body is getting pushed around and manipulated to help heal damage. In the process, I am not having a complete melt down. I’m impressed. 10 years ago this would be impossible. Serious progress in handling difficult challenges.
