  • Converting post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth with your warrior soul

    in Lifestyle

    There is a well known fact among those who have managed to heal and liberate themselves from their trauma with great resiliency. A common thread is that they all converted post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic growth - the idea that one’s trauma can actually be a source of strength and resiliency, rather than just pain and suffering.

    It also happens to be something that humanity has practiced for as long as it has existed.

    It’s a life practice that is not very easy to digest at first in a society where we expect life to be pristine and perfect. But once acknowledged, it can provide measures of strength and resiliency that you never thought you had and (this is the hard part) might never have found had you not faced the trauma you faced. When you face the fiery gates of hell that your trauma has led you to, no doubt you burn with pain and suffering, but in that raging heat, the inner steel in you cures and toughens. It becomes far stronger than it ever would have been had you not gone through that experience. In today's podcast we explore the idea of post-traumatic growth...

    We're back with yet another day in the life of the happiest guy...my name is Sri. I'm a healer, wannabe writer, failed activist turned stand up comedian, and aspiring mama elephant. And I can't stop talking...

    The Real Life of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

    in War

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder develops after a terrifying ordeal that involved physical harm or the threat of physical harm. It is a type of anxiety disorder. It can occur after you have gone through an extreme emotional trauma that involve the threat of injury or death. More often times than not, we relate PTSD to war veterans. However normal everyday people who may have been assaulted, experienced some sort of accident or disaster can be affected by this. Many of us encounter problems in life, bad experiences and injuries. Usually things that we can bounce back from without any permanent, psychological damage or set backs. As a part of mental disorder, this often times goes untalked about. This episode I have the opportunity to talk to an E6/SSG (Staff Sergeant) in the army for 7 years. Tune in as we talk about his struggles with PTSD, when he was diagnosed and did his childhood play a part in his PTSD. Phone line will be opened! Calls and questions are welcomed! Show starts at 7pm EST. (347) 855-8637

    Violet ReikiRadio - Reiki and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

    in Spirituality

    Join me this Thursday, August 28, 2014 to discuss Reiki and Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, warfare, serious injury, or threats of imminent death. The diagnosis may be given when a group of symptoms, such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyperarousal, continue for more than a month after the occurrence of a traumatic event.

    Most people having experienced a traumatizing event will not develop PTSD. Women are more likely to experience higher impact events, and are also more likely to develop PTSD than men.[3] Children are less likely to experience PTSD after trauma than adults, especially if they are under ten years of age. War veterans are commonly at risk for PTSD.

    To Miguel Reece Returning Vets' Post-Traumatic Sleep Disorders Are the New PTSD

    in Self Help

    “Sleep deprivation during military deployment is archaic, harmful and institutionally unavoidable. It may aggravate, and even cause, PTSD in veterans returning from combat. Why’s it taking so long for military brass to take action?” – Peter S. Green, journalist

    Award-winning journalist Peter S. Green investigated sleep deprivation during military deployment and how “circadian scarring” among our troops may aggravate, and even cause, PTSD in veterans returning from combat. Green asks, “Why is it taking so long for military brass to take action?”

    During today’s show our guest, Miguel Reece, Retired US Air Force Major and former VA civil servant, will address this and other related issues that are adversely affecting our servicemen and servicewomen while on and returning from deployment.

    A case study: U.S. Army Corporal Sean Bedingfield

    Through the long summer of 2008, U.S. Army Corporal Sean Bedingfield led a fire team at a dust-choked combat operations post in the craggy terrain of Kunar province in northeastern Afghanistan. His platoon was five men short of its full 32-person complement, and would catch incoming fire several times a day from Taliban insurgents in the surrounding hills.

    Full-day patrols sent Bedingfield and his squad 3,000 feet or more up into the mountains, and another 3,000 feet back down to their camp. At night, they stood watch to ward off insurgents. Often, they’d double-staff the watchtowers to ensure no one fell asleep. “If one guy dozed, the other’s job was to slap him around to wake him up,” Bedingfield said.

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    in Self Help

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health about 1 in 30 adults in the U.S. suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in a given year. Those with PTSD suffer persistent fear, flashbacks, hyper vigilance, and more. Though PTSD is largely recognized in war veterans, many different people who have survived traumatic events, such as rape, abuse, or natural disasters, can be impacted by long-term psychological symptoms too.  It is usually triggered by a fearful, helpless, or horrific event that threatens injury to one’s self, or the witnessing of these types of traumatic events that happen to others.

    My special guest for today's show is Author Dan L. Hays, a man who has first-hand knowledge of this paralyzing disorder.  Dan was diagnosed with chronic and severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from two incidents in his childhood that he only began remembering as an adult.

    Dan is a very interesting speaker and writer with extensive knowledge on the topic of PTSD. He will be sharing his knowledge with us today and illustrating what the road to healing looks like.

    PTSD - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

    in Christianity

    PTSD is an anxiety disorder that some people get after seeing or living through a dangerous event.
    When in danger, it’s natural to feel afraid. This fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to prepare to defend against the danger or to avoid it. This “fight-or-flight” response is a healthy reaction meant to protect a person from harm. But in PTSD, this reaction is changed or damaged. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they’re no longer in danger.

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    in Politics

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs when a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault, warfare, serious injury, or threats of imminent death.  The diagnosis may be given when a group of symptoms, such as disturbing recurring flashbacks, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, and hyperarousal, continue for more than a month after the occurrence of a traumatic event. Most people having experienced a traumatizing event will not develop PTSD.  People who experience assault-based trauma are more likely to develop PTSD, as opposed to people who experience non-assault based trauma such as witnessing trauma, accidents, and fire events. Children are less likely to experience PTSD after trauma than adults, especially if they are under ten years of age. War veterans are commonly at risk for PTSD.  Tonite, we will discuss the issue from a veterans view point.  We will be joined by the CEO of the ARS BELLUM FOUNDATION. Bridget Cronin.  She will discuss how the foundation is helping many veterans and their families.
