We are hearing from survivors who are experiencing heightened symptoms of PTSD under lockdown. These include hypervigilance, emotional numbness, vivid dreaming or nightmares and flashbacks.
Just because things happened a long time ago does not mean they remain in the past. Significant traumatic experience is like putting an anchor down and you're a ship. You can't go far from it because the anchor holds it in place.
Living in lockdown is experiencing the most intense petri dish version of yourself, your thoughts and emotions. If I can create coping mechanisms now, I'll be equipped to return to my normal life aware of potential triggers."
