Trauma in one’s life can lead to PTSD and attempts to destroy oneself

Trauma can have a lasting impact on Human Beings. US Soldiers returning home from the Middle East battles, bring with them the trauma of what happened during their Tour of Duty. Childhood Trauma can destroy the life a child could have had. The Trauma caused by a living with a disordered individual such as a Malignant Narcissist stays with the Victim long after the Narcissist has left seeking a new source of Narcissistic Supply.

The Trauma caused by a disordered individual also creates Trauma Bonding, making it extremely difficult for the Victim to leave a dysfunctional relationship.

I ran across this news clip and my heart sank. When Jessica Landon was a child, she was molested by a babysitter. A child is very vulnerable. They cannot fight off an abuser. The child knows what was done to them is wrong and can blame themselves for letting it happen, even though they had no way stop it.

The molestation created major Childhood Trauma, which has lasted well into this lady’s adult life. This is PTSD at it’s worst because she took actions which in my mind was an attempt to destroy herself.  I suspect that she had been too embarrassed to seek out a Licensed Therapist and get Psychological help and support. Instead she tried to ease the pain by using alcohol. Many Trauma victims turn to Drugs and or Alcohol to try and ease the pain.

Jessica Landon’s Childhood Trauma, essentially destroyed the life that Jessica could have had and should have had.

If you are dealing with Traumatic events in your past (or even in your recent present) please seek out the help of a Licensed Therapist (Psychiatrist or Psychologist) who is experienced with helping people deal with Trauma and PTSD. It is painful and very difficult. With the help of a Licensed Medical Professional(s) one can work to get a handle on the Trauma induced PTSD and prevent the attempt at self destruction via Drugs or Alcohol.

Treating PTSD with Medical Cannabis by Dr. Sue Sisley

More American Vets have died after returning home and then suffering with PTSD and Complex PTSD, than have died on the battlefields of recent U.S. Wars. Suicide is not uncommon.

PTSD and Complex PTSD is not a burden that just returning American Vets have to deal with. Victims of Narcissistic Abuse could also become afflicted with PTSD and Complex PTSD.

The legalization of Medical Cannabis is removing the stigma of using Cannabis, a naturally occurring plant,  as part of a Medical Treatment. Medical Cannabis may become a recommended treatment for PTSD and Complex PTSD. It has been used successfully by individuals, but because it was “illegal”, Researchers in the past could not do Medical Studies using Cannabis as a treatment protocol.

The FDA may approve a Research Study using Medical Cannabis but the Researchers must get the Cannabis from another agency named NIDA, which controls the one single U.S. Government source of Medical Cannabis. NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) can put a full stop to any FDA approved Study using Medical Cannabis. Hence, in the US there have been precious few Medical Studies on the benefits of Medical Cannabis as a treatment. There are huge numbers of personal accounts of Cannabis being used to successfully treat for example Brain Cancer, Leukemia and PTSD. But the real life truth is called Anecdotal Evidence, which has little value to Government agencies which look for Peer Reviewed Medical Studies which could not be done because Government agencies had Cannabis officially classified as being illegal.
