Amazes me how many acccurate memories of ‘red flags’ my hyper vigilant brain stores.

Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I have had hyper vigilance since childhood, I needed it due to ongoing abuse.

I don’t remember being any other way.

I’ve always studied people, assessed them, picked up on all the subtle and covert cues for working out people’s intentions, when their words and image don’t match, pick up when people’s behaviours change.

My short term memory has always been shocking and I guess my brain has prioritised what it needs to function for – survival.

I’m sure there is some medical, neurological explanation, but I am speaking from a person’s perspective who has hyper vigilance and how it works to me.

Every ‘red flag’ moment in people’s behaviours, are stored away and can be remembered whenever something triggers that.
