Are you living with symptoms that impact your life? Maybe you’re too anxious do something, having trouble sleeping, or have chronic pain. Whatever is currently happening, it’s possible that your brain hasn’t been able to properly process something from your past.
When a disturbing or traumatic event occurs, it can get locked in the brain with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, feeling and body sensations. If your brain isn’t able to properly process this information, it gets stuck in your memory networks. This is why it can often feel like we’re reliving a traumatic (or shameful, embarrassing, upsetting) experience when we think about it. Your brain is hanging on to that memory and filtering your current experience through it.
