A DIY look at the biology, neuroscience, and shared experiences behind C-PTSD, without the "bright sides." Your sorta smart, sorta fucked up friend, Jess - ex-scientist, current psych master's student, brain-obsessed biopunk, scrappy dirtchild - starts to make sense of anxiety, abuse, bad relationships, narcissists, survival parts, stress responses, brain programming and processing, hypersensitivity... and the rest of "life on trauma brain."

Let's talk about everyone's favorite new buzzdiagnosis - Complex Trauma (CPTSD). What is it? Why is it so difficult to name? And what does it really do to your brain, as far as creating self-destructive neural structures that can undermine your lifetime? Here's a biological / neuropsychological breakdown of life on undiagnosed CPTSD, AKA living wit…

I don’t know a single person who hasn’t shamefully uttered the phrase “But I wonder if that’s really bad enough to count as trauma, when other people have had it worse.” So let’s stop right there and c…
 
So, how’s life been lately? But how has it really been? Having some variety of experiences that goes beyond your normal baseline standard depression, anxiety, self-hatred and disinterest in being alive?
