Trauma-Related Disorders – PTSD

Trauma-Related Disorders: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder & Acute Stress Disorder – Video & Lesson Transcript | Study.com

History is full of bizarre reports. Ancient soldiers would go blind despite no physical injury. Shakespeare wrote of maladies afflicting warriors and kings, where their mind began to churn and broil without any injury. In the U.S. Civil War, many of the soldiers coming home had difficulties in the field or returning to their normal lives.

The Simple Cure for Loneliness | Baya Voce | TEDxSaltLakeCity

My thoughts:  So i watched this tedtalk and felt it was great…I think sometimes in life we lose sight of what is truly important.   Connecting with others… We distract ourselves so much with work and activities that we forget to connect… to truly connect.   For me, after a hard time in my life, I learned to deal with things on my own…During that time I lost trust and dealing with things on my own felt safe.    The only problem with that was that i continued living and dealing with things on my own…I felt lonely at times because I felt I had no one.   I never asked for help because I thought I could handle it on my own.

Work Work Work and Study Study Study was my escape…yet at the end of the day there was still a very empty space that needed to be filled.  A void.

I am sharing this with you because I want you to travel with me in my journey…I learned when i did go through my dark time, when i was younger that it felt horrible to go through a dark time alone…It was real hard…I want YOU to know that despite what you are going through there is light at the end of the tunnel and we all go through dark times…

This video and many things I hope to post will show you some techniques that can help you not feel alone…part of life is being aware of what we are going through…being mindful and present and the other part is creating the life that we want…happiness takes work and it is time for us to create that happiness…Let the work begin NOW!

The psychology of forgetting yourself:
Peder Berggren at TEDxSSE

I actually found this video amazing because my dad lately has been experiencing a loss of memory.  He actually called me his sister and that really concerned me because it felt like it was the early signs of dementia or alzheimer’s.   He comes in an out these days but seems to be doing a little better.

I always say that knowledge is power and understanding what is actually happening makes you feel less helpless in situations.

The song at the end made me cry.    Made me think of what my dad said…only when you experience something do you know what it feels like and I agree with him very much…

Alessia Cara – Scars To Your Beautiful

 

This song made me cry… i think it’s great!

 

Lyrics

She just wants to be beautiful
She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
She craves attention, she praises an image
She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
Oh, she don’t see the light that’s shining
Deeper than the eyes can find it
Maybe we have made her blind
So she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away
‘Cause cover girls don’t cry after their face is made

But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, yhe world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

She has dreams to be an envy, so she’s starving
You know, covergirls eat nothing
She says beauty is pain and there’s beauty in everything
What’s a little bit of hunger?
I could go a little while longer, she fades away
She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it
Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
Oh, oh
So to all the girls that’s hurting
Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
The light that shines within

There’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

No better you than the you that you are (no better you than the you that you are)
No better life than the life we’re living (no better life than the life we’re living)
No better time for your shine, you’re a star (no better time for your shine, you’re a star)
Oh, you’re beautiful, oh, you’re beautiful

And there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
Oh-oh, oh-oh
And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Amazing Aerosmith Video

Lyrics

I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy to see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin’ insane
Tryin’ to walk through
The pain
When I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I thought I could leave, but couldn’t get out the door
I was so sick and tired
Of livin’ a lie
I was wishin’ that I would die
It’s amazing
With the blink of an eye, you finally see the light
It’s amazing
When the moment arrives that you know you’ll be alright
It’s amazing
And I’m sayin’ a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight
That one last shot’s permanent vacation
And how high can you fly with broken wings?
Life’s a journey, not a destination
And I just can’t tell just what tomorrow brings
You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn’t listen to all that righteous talk, oh yeah
I was out on the street,
Just a tryin’ to survive
Scratchin’ to stay alive
It’s amazing
With the blink of an eye, you finally see the light
It’s amazing
When the moment arrives that you know you’ll be alright
Oh, it’s amazing
And I’m sayin’ a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight
Desperate hearts, desperate hearts
