Lots of people with PTSD struggle to comprehend why they fly off the handle at such little 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 really rather simple, and simpler to demonstrate than commonly clarify more easily those with PTSD tend to get upset quicker, and faster than others at small dumb things.
I want to clarify this, and you'll better comprehend the difference to those with 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 endeavors, going to work, cooking dinner, etc etc. No problems with that one.
The PTSD stressors represented apparent, when something bad happens, or is actually hindering you, is typically classified as "bad stress", which consists such matters as paying invoices, money, relationships, getting fired from your own job, etc etc etc. Lousy stress is got by everybody at some stage within their day; it merely is dependent upon the individual themself, as well as the amount.
As you are able stressor cup to see, an ordinary individual is represented by Cup 2, and with both positive and negative anxiety. They still have plenty of room in their cup without overflowing (bursting, fury, fury, etc etc). Before being shoved on the border a normal man can take a lot of anxiety within their daily life.
The issue with that is that we still have the same amount of good and bad stress as everyone else, though we also have this enormous ball of PTSD which includes our traumas and much more.
As you can see from this cup, with good anxiety and PTSD, you actually don't have much room for anything else. A little "bad stress" for a person with PTSD, and they overflow rather fast compared to anyone else.
