This one is dated (copyright 1992), but the info is timeless.

Renee,

I tend to think it's the bodies way of protecting us from harm and sometimes it can be a good thing..I still remember ( like it was yesterday ) when I was 8 years old, watching a milk delivery truck run over a little 5 year old boy..I can still hear the truck slam into him and his breathing with blood in his lungs until he died..So mother never had to tell me again to look both ways before crossing the street and I still remember that accident everytime I cross a street after looking both ways..

Silver Fox!

Great article Renee, as I have PTSD from a horrific incident in the Emergency room 8 years ago, I have a heart arrythmia and the ER doc gave me the wrong meds for it, which resulted in a terrifying scenerio. Thank God I survived, but my physiology will never be the same, as I fear the arrythmia constantly, thanks for the article, Juli

Great article, Renee! I have just begun working with a therapist for the first time for my own PTSD-causing experiences from childhood. He's using a technique that involves recounting the entire event as vividly as possible and then leading the body into an R.E.M.-like state through use of training the eyes to rapidly move back and forth (the theory is one of processing suppressed memories and emotional attachments). Supposedly, it has a very high efficacy rate. I begin my first session next week.
