PTSD its very title calls to mind that it is a disturbance in our minds due to an emotionally stressful past-situation, so can we be resilient against what it does to protect us? That protection being to recall the pain similar or identical situations have caused to us in our pasts?

One thing that I have to say here is that PTSD has NEVER been proven to be based upon a chemical imbalance inside of our bodies or inside of our brains. This brings me to a question about the way we are treated in response to our conditions: why are we prescribed chemically disruptive drugs in response when even the psychiatric profession has admitted to their having no proof that there is a condition upon which they work? (That will be the subject of an upcoming webisode, I just have to add it here, because it remains as one of the most important of any of our questions in regards to PTSD!) “Christopher”
the condition of being essential or indispensable
recoil, repercussion, rebound, backlash < movement, motion < happening, occurrence, occurrent, natural event < event < psychological feature < abstraction, abstract entity < entity

Having read every interpretation associated with this word, (resiliency), I am forced to ask another question: can it be an acceptable trait is we are to be able to effectively alleviate the effects we suffer as a result of having PTSD in the first place?

Would not the process of retaliating against the importance of these traits in accepting the protective properties of remembrance of past dangers, produce an even more dangerous level of existence. Without the flight response of our natures, nothing would have the effect of producing within us the fears from which we try to protect ourselves.

Is PTSD, a form of protection, and our emotional responses associated with it, as well identifiable as such?

When I experience a triggered response to any given situation, I have the tendency to want to avoid the area at all costs! Maybe being frightened of something which has hurt me in my past, is a good thing? Maybe it reminds me to steer clear and to move on to something else. We are constantly taught that moving forward is the purpose of life, so am I wrong to do so in response to my fears?

I desire to be healed from the intrusions of PTSD, but, should I desire for the mechanisms of memory-for-protection to as well be removed from my mental capacities? When I walk through the world, I need to have the capacitive ability to ascertain a possibly dangerous situation, this is a response to the situation, it creates regeneration through survival.

What I believe we are in the need of acquiring, is a new base of identifying nomenclature for emotional situations which are disruptive to an individual’s life, and not more stigma-producing labels which make the already victimized person, a target for new victimization.

Holistic approaches to treatment and even to the identification process are necessary as well because the people who suffer from PTSD seem to be the only ones with the actual connection to make a cognitive attempt to destroy the malady’s misconceptions!

I don’t know if being resilient I the right terminology to use in response to PTSD, it seems that it is counterproductive to recoil against the only protective mechanism which may be available at a time of the physical and psychological assault. Can stressful response dynamics which create the eventual symptoms of PTSD, actually be a good thing, before they become repressive and disruptive?

I am glad to have such a place as this site and the people who are in the processing of all of the possible aspects of this interruptive condition, to be available to persons like myself. Outside forceful psychiatric dynamism has produced a level of victimization which is as at this point, unknown in the history of our species! This hit-or-miss schematic can no longer be tolerated if we are ever expected to be able to save ourselves from the destructive effects of emotional disorders. We are not chemically unbalanced until the chemicals are ingested through prescription drugs! This, my friends, is a known truth!

I look forward to alternative suggestions, this is why I am here, on this site, and it is why I intend to remain here, and attempting to contribute as much positive information as I can, to help anyone who is in need, because I too, find myself in this awkwardly untenable position.

I pray for the peace of all of you.
