The Post Traumatic Stress Cup Interpretation

Many people with PTSD battle to know why they fly off the handle at such small matters, i.e., the toilet roll is around the wrong way, someone walked in front of you, that stranger looked at you, etc etc. The reason is actually quite simple, and simpler to show than normally explain those with PTSD have a tendency to get angry quicker, more readily, and more rapid than others at small dumb things.

Allow me to explain this, and you will better comprehend the difference to those with PTSD, and those without.

No problems with that one.

The clear, when something goes wrong, or is actually hindering you, is generally classified as "bad stress", which consists such things as paying invoices, money, relationships, getting fired from your own work, etc etc etc. Terrible stress is got by everybody at some period within their day; it simply depends upon the sum, as well as the individual themself.

As you are able to observe, Cup 2 represents an ordinary man, and with both bad and good anxiety. They still have plenty of room in their own cup without overflowing (exploding, rage, wrath, etc stressor cup etc). An ordinary man can take lots of tension in their daily life, before being shoved on the edge.

Now whilst we still have both negative and positive stress, there's now this thing called "PTSD" in our cup. The situation with that is that we still have the same amount of bad and nice anxiety as everyone else, though we also have this big hunk of PTSD which contains our injuries and more.

As you can PTSD view from this cup, with great pressure and PTSD, you really don't have much room for anything else. A little "bad stress" to get someone with PTSD, and they overflow fairly rapidly compared to anyone else.
