THE CONSEQUENCES OF TRAUMATIC STRESS EFFECTS AND INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

April 10, 2015

Jonathan Harnisch responds to an emotional challenge instead of to the subtle ebb and flow facing the truth and consequences of his own damaging responses to PTSD and intimate interpersonal relationships. People with PTSD are different than “normal” folk as they lose relationships and interest in the things they used to enjoy, feeling irritated and getting mad easily. There are particularly many difficulties when anniversaries come around. On the road from therapy to thrift shop, Jonathan begins to recognize and seek help regarding the fact that a person with PTSD often does not notice their own symptoms or the consequences of getting mad but others do see it. Dealing with the consequences puts a great burden on the body and mind. Harnisch begins to wade back into what he refers to as the usual standard podcast where mental illness and its devastating consequences of suffering and stress, which affects all people, are discussed candidly. This video podcast was recorded on Thursday, April 9, 2015.
