Many individuals with PTSD battle to know why they fly off the handle at such small things, i.e., the toilet roll is around the wrong way, someone walked in front of you, that stranger looked at you, etc etc. The reason is actually quite simple, and easier to show than often clarify those with PTSD have a tendency to get upset quicker, more readily, and faster than others at little stupid things.
I want to clarify this, and you'll better comprehend the difference to those with the PTSD cup PTSD, and those without.
Whether you realise it or not believe it, everybody has this thing called "good stress" in their life, which consists of such things as getting out of bed, day to day jobs, going to work, cooking dinner, etc etc. No problems with that one.
The apparent, when something goes wrong, or is actually hindering you, is usually classified as "bad stress", which consists such things as paying invoices, cash, relationships, getting fired from your own work, etc etc etc. Awful anxiety is got by everybody at some period in their day; it merely is dependent upon the amount, along with the individual themself.
As you can observe, a normal individual is represented by Cup 2, and with both bad and good stress. They still have a lot of room in their cup without overflowing (bursting, rage, anger, etc etc). An ordinary individual has the ability to take a lot of tension in their daily life, before being shoved over the border.
Now whilst we still have both good and bad stress, there's now this thing called "PTSD" in our cup. The situation with that is that we have exactly stressor cup the same quantity of good and bad pressure as everyone else, though we also have this big ball of PTSD which comprises much more and our traumas.
As you can see from this cup, with good pressure and PTSD, you really don't have much room for anything else. A little "bad stress" for a person with PTSD, plus they overflow rather fast compared to anyone else.
