C-PTSD:..Is Trauma Fear Real?

First let us establish fear as a warning signal, doing no harm on its own.  Even if fear is real, no harm happens with the fear alone.  Eample:  While walking a bear appears in front of us.  He stands up, growls sending our fear into high gear.  Then, without warning the bear turns and leaves.

*

What damage has been done?  Are we harmed?  What is the difference between real fear and trauma fear?  Physically almost nothing.

*

The amygdala activates our fight or flight mechanism whether we feel this is real or trauma.  This danger exists only in our heads from past stored events.  Trauma fear is a delusion.  It is not real.  My body was the last to accept this fact.  It must be experienced and observed.

*

Why should you even consider what I am saying about fear.  Maybe because my same trigger thoughts and fear stimuli still exist.  They fade with a total lack of interest now.  They must be delusions or I would still be filled with anxiety and fear.
