How to identify the things that trigger us can be quite complicated.
Some of us can tolerate and tolerate until we explode.
Others can’t tolerate the slightest frustration in their environment.
But it’s important to stop and question yourself about what triggers you on a daily basis.
It’s also important to understand the specific triggers to your PTSD and other trauma symptoms.
In this article (and video), I discuss and identify common triggers.
When I am not doing blog posts or videos online I am seeing clients in my office who struggle with PTSD and other trauma symptoms. One of the things we focus on is identifying what it triggering them in their daily lives and what can be excluded from their lives so they can move forward in a healthy way. Unfortunately, this process isn’t as simple as it may seem and often requires multiple sessions to work through the details.
One this process is over, my client is able to move forward with a plan and minimize or completely get rid of the things that are causing a regression in health.
It would be nice if all PTSD and trauma sufferers could engage in this process. The healing process may be a little shorter if they could.
So I discuss, in the following video, ways to identify the triggers in your life that could be causing you to regress in your trauma recovery or stay stuck:
Some potential causes of PTSD regression include but are not limited to:
- An invalidating environment
- A chaotic environment/relationship
- Emotional and psychological manipulation being done toward you
- Depression and anxiety that is untreated or poorly treated
- The wrong kind of treatment for your symptoms
In order to heal properly from trauma you need a stable and calm environment.
I wish you well
