I feel my heart pounding
I back up against a wall
My heart pounding
My head spinning
Fight or Flight?


Just a smell
Just a sight
Brings memories pouring back
Then fight or flight is all I think


This is my life
This is my hell
This is what I live through
Depression
Anxiety
Fear
Anger
Everyday
Every minute
of ever hour
Yes, I have PTSD. I'm not going to say why but I do. Believe me or not....

Literature Commisons are open.
Depends on length of poem/story/OC description (except Haiku or Sonnet)
15 :points: per Haiku
25 :points: per Sonnet

I do, also. It's not severe, but every time I walk into a doctors office, a hospital, when I smell the scent of rubbing alcohol and sterilized metal and disgustingly bitter or horribly sweet medication...it brings me back to when I was 7 and...
yeah.
Fight of flight. I get it :/

I'm so sorry for the late reply and so sorry you know what PTSD is like....mine, sadly, was diagnosed as severe :tears: Even though I wrote that poem over a year ago the flashbacks have gotten worse and I swear I have more triggers then I can freaking count >.< 
I'm writing a new poem about my flashbacks....
Hope you're doing better :tighthug:

*hugs* Poor thing. I feel your pain. (No PTSD, but I might have depression or bipolar or something - my grandmama definitely did, and stuff like that DOES run in families.)

You're welcome.

Plus, one of my stories will deal with people who have, either diagnosed or speculated, PTSD. (They all have crappy personal lives, plus they hunt down serial killers and molesters and solve crimes for a living. You see pretty awful stuff in that line of work.) This provides a good insight into it.

I've heard about it from a vietnam war vetran and first from my counselor who says I have it. I honestly have all the symptoms for it...:/ I'll defiantly read your story though ^^

Well, the official story won't be up here, but stuff related to it is in the folder 'Southern Fried Justice' in my gallery. Though nothing up there deals with PTSD, a lot deals with the causes and some other effects.
