How Does Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Change the Brain?

How Does Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Change the Brain?


Child abuse. Rape. Sexual assault. Brutal physical attack. Being in a war and witnessing violence, bloodshed, and death from close quarters. Near death experiences. These are extremely traumatic events, and some victims bear the scars for life.

The physical scars heal, but some emotional wounds stop the lives of these people dead in their tracks. They are afraid to get close to people or form new relationships. Change terrifies them, and they remain forever hesitant to express their needs or desire to meet their creative potential. It may not be always apparent, but post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) stifles the life force out of its victims. It is no use telling them to “get over” it because PTSD fundamentally changes the brain’s structure and alters its functionalities.

What goes on inside the brains of people with PTSD?

PTSD is painful and frightening. The memories of the event linger and victims often have vivid flashbacks. Frightened and traumatized, they are almost always on edge, and the slightest of cues sends them hurtling back inside their protective shells. Usually, victims try to avoid people, objects, and situations that remind them of their hurtful experiences—this behavior is debilitating and prevents them from living their lives meaningfully.

Many victims forget the details of the incident, presumably in an attempt to lessen the blow. But this coping mechanism has negative repercussions as well. Without accepting and reconciling with “reality,” they turn into fragmented souls.


end quote

Being that member of the Brethren , are socially backward . Through having been steeped in a lifestyle lacking compassion and empathy. To the extent that they’ll even prevent themselves from displaying compassion and empathy toward certain members of their own family

Most Brethren wont even be slightly aware of the kind of damage what their faith practices have caused (Brethren school teachers certainly wont be allowed to be teaching the Brethren children,anything to much about it. Will they?. Brethren cult require constant flow of up and coming socially backward children. Thar are socially engineered so as to be void of certain aspect of intelligence and knowledge)

Add to this problem above, the fact that Brethren member are also guided toward how to become human being whom are completely void of conscience  

Then again, also add to both these problem above, the fact that their leader’s among the Brethren hierarchy, such as Bruce review wrecker Hales, are also the type of people who’ll have all been totally overcome by their greed for wealth and money

The poor Brethren

No conscience=no real compassion= no true honest empathy

Due to this

The Brethren are forced to need to create the facade of charity

Therefore why they created the Rapid relief team as a public relation campaign (which explain reason behind why the rapid relief team is only just  been created in fairly recent year. And hadn’t existed previously before time of beginning of charity commissions inquiry into value of Brethren charity practice “public benefit” .)


Seeing as Brethren are socially backward within their mistreatment of family whom their  Brethren bogan group has chosen to expel and excommunicate from.Causing separation of family and trauma in the process. Too many times, even ending up being the cause for outcome of suicide

Brethren were therefore forced to have need to create the rapid relief team

They had no other choice ?

Because, by this time, the world was by-then beginning to become more and more aware of Brethren uncharitable socially backward way

Bruce review wrecker Hale had evidently been heard to say something to the effect that non brethren, wont ever be able to do anything to alter/change the way of the Brethren

And yet , non Brethren within society outside of the Brethren cult compound, have in fact definitely been helping to alter and cause Brethren to have need to change

We don’t care if Bruce review wrecker Hales like to remain childish enough that he’ll like to deny how its actually been happening

No skin off our nose

What matters to us, is that we are in fact still able to apply enough pressure, from outside of the Brethren cult compound ranks, so as to make sure that the Brethren bogan would have need to begin to pull their socks up, and to “cease acting so anti social toward outsiders” , to reform their ways, and to extend the way of their cult compound so that it will now at least need to provide more charitable aid to people outside

This is directly how Bruce review wrecker Hales is being pushed into line, by outside forces

No matter whether he’d like “to admit to it”, or not

Fact is, that change has in fact been forced to happen

Today,Bruce review wrecker Hales really has need to lay off with the bully tactic toward the Brethren youth now as well too


Because of reason how there is always a group of us ex Exclusive Brethren, who’ll continue to remain active in  playing the roll of the watch dog

We remain ever ready to jump on Brucie, any time he’d try and begin acting as an unsocial bully toward the Brethren youth

That’s for real

Today Bruce review wrecker Hales has already lost a fair amount of control of power of what “he’d formally” wielded among Brethren

Thanks to hard work and determination of all us ex eb


I doubt that Brucie will have wanted to relinquish power

Brucie simply isnt the kind of person to have an ability to understand the true meaning of what it require to act in a caring kind manner

Being that Brucie is been born of “socially backward” bogan Brethren stock

All Brucie understand,to any great degree, is greed for money

The poor fella?

Bruicie is big on money, while “SMALL  in ability for act compassion” and empathy

Poor fella

Brethren= void of conscience=low on true compassion= lacking in empathy

I feel very blessed to have been one to have escaped from among the Brethren ranks, many years ago before now

Brethren are a group of human to be pitied

To be a loved family member among Brethren. The requirement is that the human being would first have need to remain within boundary of a SOCIALLY BACKWARD CULT

People who’d agree to adhere to this kind of “socially backward way” of living existence

Would truly deserve to be pitied ?

Their existence, is not so much better, to any great degree, than like what the existence of people coerced into existing under rule of Hitlers hierarchy were also like to need to be livingexisting” under

Those poor people also hadn’t had ability to know what the feeling of what “true freedom” would be like either

They were also “existing” as slaves to the system

The poor people

People who’ll never ever learn the true meaning of freedom

And poor people

People who have been ripped off

Even should they have large bank balances , when they die

They’ll have still “completely missed out“, on even being able to begin to understand

What the true meaning of freedom is actually about

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
