A study from December of 2017 has found that adults who experienced trauma and high stress as children have an inability to process information that should tell them they are headed to a bad place or making a wrong decision. "Adults who endured high levels of stress within their childhood have difficulty reading signs of potential punishment or loss, which makes them vulnerable to certain avoidable health, legal, and financial problems."

  • I work with many trauma survivors, Neurofeedback has proven to be the most effective tool for helping traumatized brains to reset themselves. Many people who have seen no progress with years of counselling find they are able to breakthrough and move forward effortlessly after neurofeedback, therapists say their patients are finally able to use the tools they have been trying to give them. There are some great books to learn more about trauma and neurofeedback ""Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma" by Sebern Fischer and "the Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel van der Kolk. What has shocked me in the years that I have been a neurofeedback provider is just how prevalent child abuse and trauma actually are. After seeing how it helped my children and myself, I have made it my life work to make neurofeedback accessible to all through local low cost or no cost walk in sessions and rental units that we ship nationally for home use. I wish more people knew about this option, so much unnecessary suffering.

  • God bless ,,for this post..

  • Well - that's what is called "fighting ones own demons" - every rape, beating, abuse, bullying ends at some time. It are our own impressions that haunt us ... and it is up to us, to step up against the haunting. Shall we lose, we change... Shall we win, we also change - but if for better or worse, depends again - on us.

    As Nietzsche said - when fighting demons, watch out not to turn into the demons you are fighting. At the end, Nietzsche himself lost his battle... so did Freud. So did many many people, great or small...

    Our body is not able to fight off stronger abusers (parents, family members, school mates, or random people who decide to ravage on us) but our brain can defeat anything... the most tricky part of life is - our brain, that can do anything, will make us believe the contrary... there is hidden the loophole, that we often cannot defeat, even if we are aware of it.

    Even Bruce Lee did not defeat his own inner demons - which were not made up, those were born from abuse as well.

    Keep fighting. Win And then turn into better people, not worse (not next gen abusers)

  • Hey I really related to this greatly and yeah, fuck these UW researchers. What are their ultimate intentions for understanding our childhood-traumatized brains? It can't be good, prob covertly funded by the CIA. Personally I think we dont trust partners in relationships because we have a heightened awareness of the underlying selfishness beneath the biochemical lie of romantic love. In other words, we know from experience that love is mostly bullshit anyways. But jeez at least now I know why I usually skip the seatbelt and text at 80mph. I could definitely cut that out. Hey since we are both brainfucked in the same way maybe we should get together, see if our mutual fucked:upness makes us a good match. Sexually speaking, I can tell you no bullshit my hypersensitivity has given me an incredible talent for making women come. gutsknucklebone at gmailDM me if you want to connect. :)
