Trauma happens in everyone’s life somewhere on their lifeline. The significance and impact is uniquely different. The brain remembers the trauma. It gets revisited until the emotions and beliefs associated with the trauma are connected and weaved together. This process is EMDR. Your Brain should and needs to remember to warn you in the event something similar is about to happen. When you are safe and in a state of calmness, you could call it healed, or growth or enlightenment. I need my PTSD. But in a way that keeps me safe. Not ignored. Not renamed. Not medicated. Accepted.
