Study: Small area of brain could be key to PTSD | Minnesota Public Radio News.

Every little piece of the puzzle helps us understand why we are the way we are, which in turn helps us find a path to better health as we learn how we can change the direction we go from here.

I find that I do get headaches that originate in that area of my head before radiating out to the rest of my brain as a flashback or migraine set in, sometimes both. I feel dull and uninterested in things afterward for about a week. My memory doesn’t function as well either.

What I want to do is find a way to lessen the damage done to my(our) brain after I(we) have had one of these episodes, since I cannot stop them once they have reached a certain point.

It’s all about lessening the pain, and increasing the time that I feel healthy, and happy, so I can become more social again.
