I’m trying to figure this one out. And I admit that it may be an exercise of futility. However…
As a survivor of physical abuse when I was young, there are very specific scenarios I avoid so as to not trigger what I consider major panic attacks.
As a survivor of rape prior to going to Army basic training, there are very specific areas/places I avoid so as not to trigger what possibly could be considered PTSD (I’ve never been diagnosed with such so I won’t insult people by saying I have it).
Friends of mine with diagnosed PTSD actively avoid things, places, scenarios, etc. that will trigger episodes for them.
On the other hand, Melody Hensley specifically states that she has diagnosed PTSD from social media and yet constantly utilizes social media all the while vocalizing how bad her PTSD is from these social media sites.
Does anyone wonder why I smell a “professional victim” rat?
