A Survival Guide to Love and Be Loved

This guide will give you information on the intricacies of having a relationship that is impacted by PTSD. Anyone with PTSD can learn to retrain their brain, and take full control their life. The information gathered here and in other self-help materials can give you a fundamental understanding of PTSD and how it can be conquered. By identifying and addressing the symptoms associated with the disorder and controlling stress levels to reduce anxiety, PTSD sufferers can retrain, regain, and reclaim their lives.While the internet is filled with vast amounts of information, not all of it is accurate, valid, or useful. Evaluating reliable sources of information to improve your quality of life can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t know what you are looking for.

The primary difference between people who are barely managing symptoms related to their PTSD diagnosis, narrowly getting by each day with the help of one or several biological medicines and [maybe] therapy, and those who heal permanently from the disorder is rooted in knowledge and control.

PTSD changes the brain’s chemistry, and the symptoms that develop make the person oversensitive and overreactive to the world. While the world cannot be changed, anyone can change the way they react to the world, even if they are suffering with PTSD. It is particularly important for PTSD sufferers to counter this over-reactivity and lack of control. This can be achieved with a plan of action that includes crucial elements that will help you regain control of your life.

 

PTSD is not a one size fits all disorder. What works for some, doesn’t work for others. What works is a personalized system of tools, skills, mechanisms, and techniques you can use anywhere. These proper coping mechanisms to tackle the symptoms of PTSD are the only thing that will improve your quality of life and allow you to regain control of your brain, outside of therapy and medications, if that’s your goal.
