PTSD: The Equation that decides how we live, is desire versus risk.

If my desires lead to me being triggered, I start avoiding this danger.

Another equation is pain versus pleasure, which finds us avoiding for safety.

Many PTSD symptoms are risk aversive, avoidance leading the way.

Survival mode is how PTSD rolls.

In this mode, risks seem enormous, our perception is consumed by the danger.

Physical mechanisms are changing and firing.

Strong chemicals are secreted to face a lethal threat.

Desires wane when complex PTSD is active.

How do we ever enjoy life, people, or feel safe?
