PTSD from abuse
Date: November 20, 2017 05:38PM
There's been some doubt expressed by certain armchair internet psychologists, concerning the fluxuating statements and moods exhibited by certain other posters.
Those who enjoy pointing out these fluctuations are entirely ignorant on the subject, at it's most basic levels. Those who would criticize a sufferer, must be advised that they are merely displaying their own ignorance, while inflicting additional harm on already compromised individuals. Know it or not, they are the "adult" version of school-yard bullies who would pick on the kids in wheelchairs.
Here's the basics of the effects on the brain, but feel free to Google the subject to discover the depths of ingnorance from which the bullies have been operating. They ridicule and lose patience with that pain which they themselves have not suffered, have never had to recover.http://www.psychiatrictimes.com/articles/reexperiencinghyperaroused-and-dissociative-states-posttraumatic-stress-disorder
I would suggest that the bullies themselves Google "dissociation," but I suspect that they much prefer the feeling of superiority experienced in their naming this illness' well-documented symptoms as "lying."
Should they think it possible that they don't have degrees in the field, and come to understand that reality is unique to individuals, not merely the limited scope of the bullies' experiences in life, they will also understand the public mea culpa that is well past due from them.
Shame on them. Shame for not caring enough to look it up, and from ignorance, having behaved so abominably. Shame on them for making the effort to critque a thing in which they have no training or experience. Shame on them for reaching for harm, rather than understanding.
It's just beyond their comprehension how deeply wounding abuse might be. Lucky them.
