    Amen brother, well said. We need victories. And if our frame of reference is our own selves, there are no insignificant victories. Every one of them feels good. Kudos for your accomplishments.

    Oh, and don’t neglect the energetics :)

    Beautifully and succinctly said! They also suffer from having had prolonged sleep deprivation.

    The armed forces need stress and trauma treatment in the field. By the time they've had a couple of tours and get back home it's been in the system for so long it's going to be very hard to get it out. And cognitive/behavioral therapy ain't gonna do it.

    Precisely. And this is why they seek violence at home to simulate the dopamine rush they were getting in the field. They develop tolerance (in this case downregulation of both ACTH receptors in adrenals and dopamine receptors in brain) to stress so more and more is needed to keep them going. Same as alcoholics, developing tolerance for alcohol.

    It's too bad that people in the trauma field can't put their finger on the issue the way you can, by emphasizing the enormous impact of stress chemicals on the system, resensitizing, resensitizing again and again.

    There's lots of good people in the field who have a lot of specialized knowledge and, in addition, very good instincts about stress and trauma from a theoretical POV. And If they talk about nutrition, it's all fish oil and the like. Their heads and hearts are in the right place but there's not a lot of good, effective applications.

    The take many people in the trauma field would put on the issue of resensitization would be somatic. So they would say that the violence is precipitated by the person wanting to recreate the violent shock of the episode(s) in the hope of getting a somatic completion of the massively inhibited neuro-muscular system. IOW, getting the brake or the freeze to release.

    Those therapies exist but still they need to be done in the field as the stress and trauma is ongoing.
