The PTSS Cup Summary

The reason is really fairly straightforward, and easier to demonstrate than normally clarify those with PTSD tend to get upset quicker, more easily, and faster than others at little stupid things.
I want to clarify this, and you will better understand the difference to those with PTSD, and those without.
No problems with that one.
The clear, when something bad happens, or is actually hindering you, is typically classified as "bad stress", which consists such things as paying bills, cash, relationships, getting fired from your work, etc etc etc. Everybody gets lousy stress at some stage within their day; it only depends on the amount, along with the person themself.
Now, as you can observe, Cup 2 represents a man that is normal, and with both bad and good stress. They still have lots of room in their cup without overflowing (bursting, rage, fury, etc etc). Before being pushed over the border, a regular person has the ability to take a great deal of tension in their everyday life.
The problem with that is that we still have - the PTSD cup - the exact same quantity of poor and good anxiety as everyone else, though we also have this big hunk of PTSD which comprises our injuries and much more.
As you can view from this cup, with good stress and PTSD, you actually do not have much room for anything else. You can view by the "bad stress" representation near the top of the cup, it truly is very small when compared with Cup 2 - therefore that is why something so small and unimportant can make someone with PTSD fly off the handle so - PTSD - fast (anger). A little "bad stress" for a person with PTSD, and they overflow fairly fast compared to anyone else.
