Peer support subsequent to trauma contributes to full recovery

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- including complex trauma (cPTSD) -- is debilitating, breaking down the body through anxiety and stress, and it poses a significant suicide risk in sufferers. MyPTSD seeks to help and inform those who are directly or indirectly affected by these conditions through peer-to-peer support and educational resources.

    It is scientifically proven that we can create brand new brain cells through stimulating our brains specific areas that have become lacking. For those with PTSD, many would understand that Memory in general is one such area. Nintendo have had their brain training exercises out for some time now, all clinically backed. They are a good solution if you have spare cash to throw around, or, if you just want to stimulate the old brain when online to help improve your memory, there is one website that stands out beyond all else, which is backed with scientific study to prove results, being Lumosity.

    If I didn't rate it that highly, I wouldn't waste my breathe recommending it to the thousands of forum readers. It works, and not just for PTSD, but for anyone to help stimulate their brain, especially as we get older. Science has proved these memory games restimulate brain cell growth, thus holding back issues like alzheimer's and other memory conditions, along with those caused through abnormal trauma.

    Do yourself a favour if your memory is causing you great concern. Either use a credible online source or get yourself the Nintendo DS with brain memory games.

    My comp disallowed me to go to the link. The blurb says the link may be outdated, which is of course nonsense since you've just posted this. Something to do with my server here in the US maybe?

    I actually know that this works because my father suffered brain damage with his massive heart attack. My mom bought a nintendo ds to occupy herself while sitting in the hospital with him all day since she wasn't allowed to bring her laptop. After awhile my dad started playing around with it and we noticed that more of his memories were coming back. Nothing spectacular but it was little things like birthdays and other things.

    I'd heard of this but never in connection with PTSD. It makes sense. The kids have these so if I can get past the frustration of setting the thing up I'll give it a try.

    I checked out the Lumosity site. That's really cool, fun too. Thanks for the tip.
