Lots of people with PTSD struggle to comprehend why they fly off the handle at such small things, 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 demonstrate than often explain, why those with PTSD have a tendency to get angry quicker, more easily, and more rapid than others at small dumb things.
I'd like to explain this, and you'll better understand the difference to those with PTSD, and those without.
No issues with that one.
The evident, when something goes wrong, or is actually hindering you, is typically classified as "bad stress", which consists such things as paying bills, money, relationships, getting fired from your own job, etc etc etc. Awful anxiety is got by everybody at some PTSD period of their day; it just depends upon the person themself, as well as the sum.
As you PTSD are able to observe, Cup 2 represents a person that is normal, and with both bad and good anxiety. They still have a lot of room inside their cup without overflowing (exploding, rage, anger, etc etc). Before being pushed on the border a regular man can take a great deal of anxiety within their everyday life.
The issue with that is that we still possess exactly the same amount of nice and poor pressure as everyone else, though we also have this enormous hunk of PTSD which includes our injuries and much more.
As you can view from this cup, with good stress and PTSD, you really don't have much room for anything else. It is possible to view by the "bad stress" representation near the top of the cup, it is very small when compared with Cup 2 - thus this can be why something so little and unimportant can make someone with PTSD fly off the handle so rapidly (rage). A little "bad stress" to get someone with PTSD, and they overflow quite fast compared to anyone else.
