When you have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), it is very much like being the driver in one of those simulators. You can usually control the directions, but the magnitude of the response is often not connected to the action you thought you made. Your emotions and feeling seem almost not linked to the events that are happening. It weird when you go from calm to angry in a matter of seconds or you go from smiling to crying because someone got a “A” on their report card in a kid’s movie that your child was watching on the Disney channel. There’s a name for all this, of course, us doctors give names for anything and everything. But the name is not as important to understand as the problems this can cause, the fact that it is normal and how to get rid of it!
