Although war PTSD is probably similar in some ways to domestic violence PTSD, they would both be very different from Childhood abuse PTSD. When you have a non-violent childhood then go to war or marry someone who abuses you, you have a foundation of what NORMAL was. You may not be completely aware - but your instincts -primitive brain knows it. With childhood PTSD, they have no idea what normal is. Violence IS normal! The world - not just the war, or a spouse - THE WORLD is a scary place. When that child grows up, most likely stuck in the abuse their whole life, they cannot really grow up in any psychological way. Even the animal/primitive brain is affected! When a 17-20 year old goes to war the ENEMY tries to kill them, but when you are a baby or a child or a teen you are trapped in time psychologically because your FAMILY tries to kill you for so long, the trauma becomes a physical part of your brain - the brain actually changes how it functions. War vets need support and care definitely! but the people who need it most, are the ones who are forgotten - the adults who were abused as children. Even their primitive brains are affected. Child abuse victims are one of the reasons fawn was added to the F list: flight, fight, freeze... and fawn. Their animal instincts must be ignored in abusive home so they cannot react like most people... Their family IS the enemy, for a lifetime! The emotional complications cannot even be expressed! It’s one thing when an enemy tries harming you, but when it's your father or mother, or uncle or grandma... it's a whole different thing psychologically! The child is so much smaller with no weapon either. They learn to fawn to the family-enemy to survive, regardless of what they must sacrifice of themselves. People who 'go to war' can come home one day - if they survive. But people who were raised in war (abuse) have no home, and survival actually begins to feel like a curse because they have no family support, and they have trouble keeping friends (relationships are confusing-scary), and when they ask society for support or empathy or help, they are given more hate: "get over it," "deal with it," "it's over now," things people say that are not only false, but basically telling the victim of violent hate by family members that it's their fault and they deserved it - here's some more hate! War vets and domestic violence victims need empathy and support by professionals as well as from society as a whole of course - and people seem to be understanding that better these days, but adults who complain about being abused as kids (that could have lasted into their adulthood), and not being able to function still receive the same HATE from society that their own family gave them from as far back as they could remember! I think that adults who have been abused (esp. long term abuse - into adulthood) need MORE support and empathy from professionals and society because they probably don't have family if they are seeking kindness from strangers. I'm done with my rant... If you made it this far....you probably didn't actually. lol

I am one of those you speak of. Part of me is like the walking dead, always looking for my life, that I'm sure will start at any moment, IF i just turn this one more corner. I can see i have replicated, quite unconsciously, family of origin, but i have made some cherished friendships and been emotionally adopted by my friends parents when younger. I've been looking for my "home," wondering exactly where should i live, what profession should i choose, when might i meet that one special person who accepts and loves me, as is, and then I'm reminded i must do that for myself first, and I'm saddened by the fact that I'm 62 and i feel like I'm right on the verge of finding life as fulfilling, a feeling i have had for decades. Extended family will say you just dont know your worth, and i say i think i do, but then i keep finding myself with undercurrents of suspecting people'a actions are deliberately out to get me. Yet, tbh there's less of that and i can catch myself doing it so that's good. And I'm attracting a better work environment and coworkers so that's also good. The last stage seems to involve me just stepping out to be exactly who i suspect myself to be, successful and happy-go-lucky without necessarily any attachment to my original family. Instead of being afraid that I'm alone in the world, i have to dare to choose my welfare even if it means seemingly CHOOSING to be alone in the world, AND making the most of it. IF I feel alone anyway i might as well be living the life i want to live. I finally know i am enough. Now i just hand to live that feeling, out loud.

my parents were both violent alcoholics and malignant narcissists but they were cool and I was the golden child so I missed too many clues. Joined the Army at 17 which introduced a whole new flavor of trauma. I'm 59 and only now beginning to understand WTF happened to me. I have always accepted responsibility for my behavior so there is a radical acceptance that is really screwing me up! This reply sized up my issues concisely. How am I expected to behave normally if I have not the concept? No such thing as normal? no baseline to launch from. How does one recover? is there even time? is it worth it? feels good to know

I grew up in an abusive home and later an abusive relationship. To this day my heart races if my partner is angry with me and if he makes any sudden movements I immediately put up my arms to protect my face. This reaction is actually progress for me. And yup you can tell yourself over and over I’m safe everything’s ok now but the anxiety never leaves. Maybe someday there will be an answer. Blessings to you all.

I don’t know much about neuroscience, but after listening to you speak about the “thinking brain” and our “primal brain area”, it has made me think that during and after being hit with a barrage of abnormal, one-after-another major life stressors, the fast-reacting primal brain area is so hyper-activated that it rapidly changes your normal neuro-pathways (neuropathy) in the cortex. Yes, you can go to therapy to try to create new neuro-paths (and try to get rid of of the newly acquired bad ones), but it can take years to undo what the primal brain has altered in a relatively shorter time. Goes back to the old saying, “once bitten, twice shy.” And that saying is very true. Seems the primal brain (when on a sustained high alert) can really do a number on your thinking-brain’s neuropathy. Because after sustained stress, one develops new reactions (and sometimes actions) such as fear, anger, etc - which then continues to create new feelings such as being misunderstood & having mistrust in others. Then, new behaviors such as unintended self-imposed isolation...and it’s a vicious cycle. It’s what our Vietnam Vets went through when they came home. Not only were they in a very confusing war (long-term mission wise), but when they did get home, the protestors and young people totally didn’t like them. They got hit in another way, and that was rejection by the very people they thought they were fighting for. They tried to SURVIVE over in Nam, and when home, no nurturing. Anyway, I just thought this was such an excellent talk, that I just wanted to say it made me think a lot! Thanks for your Ted Talk!

This TED talk helped me understand the complexity of the brain and the order situations are interpret and delivered in an instant. Going through a divorce after 20 years of marriage and not understanding what the hell just happened can incapacitate (and did) a person from living or wanting to live a life anymore. The both of us experienced stress right from the start of our marriage that set the stage for it's inevitable end. Knowing our reaction to the stress wasn't on purpose or malevolent helps me understand how and why things played out the way they did. And you, Mr. John Riggs are such a great guitar player, I'm glad that you enjoy your creative outlet and know it helps others see that there is hope for the rest of us to be that happy and at peace with one's self.

I really respect this guy. I know a lot of doctors, and I’ve been to a lot of doctors (I get injured a lot). I have a TBI (traumatic brain injury) now, and I know everyone with a TBI is a handful. But meditation (for me, prayer) has changed my life. I feel better when I exercise. And I wouldn’t be where I am today without being able to play the piano. Thank you!

And the main thing to remember is not every victim/surviver experiences trauma the same way and the symptoms can be different. Someone who experienced the same as me would be dealing with the effects differently than I do and some could be affected worse or "barely" feel trauma at all.

I recently needed to have my body checked for peripheral neuropathy. Sure enough the test showed that I had “significant neuropathies”. During the test the Dr. looked at me at one point and asked if I had any trauma during my childhood, and I said yes, quite a bit. So when I returned to the clinic to talk with his Medical Assistant I asked her why he had asked me that, as I was so surprised that no other doctor had asked me that in 57 yrs. She explained that if a child is traumatized it wreaks havoc on the immune system and the wiring within your brain which can lead to auto-immune disorders, chronic pain, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and the list goes on. ALL of which I have, so if you are struggling I do encourage you to seek help somewhere, somehow, etc. Find the path that works for you. The saddest thing about emotional abuse is that it is even harder to heal as it is intangible and therefore others don’t take the “abuse” seriously, or they brush it aside with a typical response, “oh it couldn’t have been that bad”. Not what one needs to hear when trying to get help within the family structure which is causing the abuse. Anyway, I wish all of you the best of luck with your healing and may you find something that speaks to the healing of your whole body, mind and spirit. Be kind to yourselves as you are healing!!

I have all those things you listed too. I have autoimmune disease, I live with chronic pain, constant pain every day for years, I have peripheral neuropathy, anxiety, depression. Etc. I had Childhood trauma too. It is hard to heal. It's been an ongoing thing for me to try and get well and feel balanced. But It's work and tiring and costs money. And my physical health has got worse. I try to self help and do meditation etc and I see a psychotherapist. She helps with cognitive therapy. And she Validates me, She Hears me. I'm 55. I started seeing her a year ago for anxiety and depression. She's been Helpful. Someone has mentioned EMDR therapy to me and suggest that may help. I haven't done that yet. It is effed up that we didn't get a healthy emotional start in life. It messed our immune system and brain wiring up. And I added to it by not making the best life choices in my younger years. How are you doing? What's your path to healing, what do you do for yourself? Hope you are having better days.

Thank you for this information. I find it a bit scary. I'm thinking of how it pertains to our relationships and also to our penal system. It seems to me that we generally judge behaviors in an irrational less than compassionate way if we are not aware of this information. I am thinking that what you are teaching us not only pertains in important ways to notions such as "free will", but it also reinforces notions such as "What people say and do is not about us, it is much more just a projection of what/who they are." I think this is very true. Your course just reinforces that view. Life and relationships are very complex. Thank you for assisting us in our understanding of what is really going on with us human beings. ;) Your work is very meaningful and effects all of our experiences within and with others.

Thanks to the speaker, for a conscise explanation. Actually he's saving my life, as I come to understand why and what I suffer with. There are too many détails to write down here, but suffice to say that , loosing my love to suicide , constituted a major trauma event for me .She changed my life and I can't seem to get past it .The most beautiful, créative and soulful person I ever met ,just gone at 30 years old, whatsmore we had the time of our lives together...it has made it very difficult to deal with everyday normal stuff, which seems pointless , long bouts of dépression, rage fits, physical violence, not eating properly, not caring about personal hygiène, sleeping for days on end....I'm having to do a self diagnostic here but I think I'm suffering with some sort of PTSD.

Dr. Rigg, thanks awfully! Watching & listening to you was a real intellectual challenge & artistic treat. Could it be inferred that, if we did reconsider our reactions (good or /and bad), we could, ultimately, find Hope and, even, Reconciliation with this dual nature of ours: instinct vs. reason, animal drive vs. civility ? Last but not least, was your medical insight born /fed from your musical background, from your overall sense of Harmony, as it were? I have a hunch that it is not for nothing that Music has been considered as an X-Factor in the long run, ever since Pythagoras. Really nice to meet you and best wishes!

Trauma is real, your body never forgets the trauma and your body and mind need IFOT/ Body focussed trauma to help support your transition to learn to take a sliver at a time, be present and focus to help your body and to help your mind. We stay where we are cuz it’s familiar. Change isn’t. You can find some examples on TRshow, Shirley Turcotte - an excellent example of leaning into the land

Esoteric analysis of the impact of traumatic experiences on the brain rarely benefit those laymen who suffer. This physician's strength is his ability to be genuine and communicate with his patients for as long as it takes in an accessible manner. You do his job. Then provide constructive criticism.

How do I deal with my stressed out man when he comes home from work and gets all snarly? I'm mellow from listening to music a good part of my day and I'm ready to be kind and listen to him. It's not easy, but it's worth it. Thanks for the lecture and the superb music!

And now what? How to proceed... 1. Mainly by learning what the emotional triggers are, becoming aware of them. 2. By learning to be less reactive. 3. "Know thyself" and "Know thy enemy". Educate yourself about what's going on. Learn what makes them tick, what mind-games they play, how they trick you, how they bait you, how they love-bomb you. Great info can be found in "Transactional Analysis" and the "Karpman Drama Triangle". This gives perfect insight into the "games" that are being played with us. 4. Learn to make it/them un-familiar. What we subconsciously tend to go back to when we feel bad, is to go back to what's familiar. When the things that are familiar to us are unhealthy, we keep subconsciously going back to what hurt us. So we have to be aware of what it is that we run back to (what we are attracted to), and start running in the other direction instead. 5. Meditation practice. 6. The book "Emotional Intelligence".

Affects the performance, the behavior, the reactions; after being exposed to dangerous and death situations. The animal brain is faster than the rational brain. You are not your thoughts and the things that happened to you; you are the person who is watching those events. The origin of the the symptoms come from the circumstances, not due to a genetic cause. If we are capable to relax the brain, the physical symptoms will get better. I believe in organic holistic therapies.

Good video. And as an aside it also debunks the CBT theory of emotional disturbance the ABC theory. It is not your thoughts about an activating event that causes your reaction, it is the Amygdala in the limbic system that overrides the cortex. To heal we need to activate the prefrontal Lobes the Noticing brain, that calms the amygdala resulting in healing from trauma and better interconnections of the brain. The neurons the fire together wire together !
Linda Young

But first the stimulus zips through the cortex and then the amygdala kicks in and tells you to rely on animal defense behavior. That's been shown in the lab - so CBT was born - but maybe it doesn't always occur in that order - that would be a very informative experiment showing that! This speaker indicates that both brains receive the info simultaneously; perhaps this is newer info than I was taught.

I know its easy said: But of your life is one crisis after another you really have to change your life, some of your life-patterns or your environmanent. Don't forget that you bring yourself in those situations(sure, not always!). There are always some other views on your situation and on problems, if there are some. I wish you the best!
