The What

Survival mode is like a cousin of PTSD in that it results from trauma (likely long term trauma) sometimes trauma that happen consistently for a short amount of time. It can also be from traumas that happened in a pattern so they created a sense of a new confirmed reality in you. Traumatic experiences change the way you define your world.

What do I mean about trauma? They’re experiences that evolve terror, extreme stress or an overwhelming panic that causes you adrenaline to spike far past what it might during a really exciting movie. They’re usually fear-inducing situations that don’t match the average of you life experiences in their level of severity. What’s most relevant level of your experiences reset your “normal” because your brain can’t make them make sense with the rest of your life, so it raises the range of expected events to include terror and evil and “run for your life.” Your brain with hurt for other comparable information so that you can put this to some order, if you’ve been through trauma, you might find yourself putting yourself in more dangerous situations. That’s a way that you feel “in control” of the intense fear- a way to create “normal” between all your emotions that accounts for the vast extremes. When you go through a trauma, your brain wants you to rearrange everything else to feel, comfortable with these truths- because otherwise, it’s intolerable. It cannot predict or protect you if you cannot make sense of the logic behind something. You cannot anticipate it-or align it with anything else.
