If you figure out how to break it, please let me know! I have PTSD from childhood abuse and I've been told that this hypervigilant response is totally normal. We are always on edge, running in crisis mode even when it's not necessary. My T told me last week that I have to learn that the adrenaline only needs to surge when I really need it, not all the time. I asked her how on earth I was to do that, and she said that just by knowing about it was a first step.

So, I definitely relate, but I have no answers either. I'm always waiting for something bad to happen, or the next bad thing to happen, because that's how I was conditioned.
