Trauma- Fight, Flight or Freeze

As I began therapy at a very young age, I learned more about my PTSD to childhood experiences and they followed me into my adulthood.

As I still experience traumatic experiences (that’s life y’all) I react in a strange way. The only way I can explain it to this day, is an out of body experience. I freeze. I can’t move. I disassociate from all feeling, pain that my true body is feeling. I can experience the event as kind of hovering over my body. Strange.. I know.

It is a survival technique of some sort. Anyway, my next post I will list some informative articles about this natural reaction and other reactions that may resonate with you. Please let me know your experience with these and how you have worked through them! XO
