Hi, I’m Leif E. Greenz and today I’m dissecting a mental breakdown I had while trying to film a video about madness and creativity. I’m going to take you through the breakdown from trigger to emotional processing so that you can see what a PTSD episode might look like from start to finish.
Remember: Symptoms are different for everyone. This is just an example of the way my symptoms sometimes manifest. I would call this specific episode a dissociative emotional flashback.
If you’re in the middle of a mental health crisis, reach out to someone you trust. That may be a hotline or it may be a trusted friend. Try to process some of what you’re feeling and remember that emotions always pass. I love and believe in you.
Thank you for watching this. I hope you learned something or at least found solace in shared experiences. I care about you all very much.
Leif E. Greenz
