Intelligence, bonding, birth order, GENETICS. No one knows why one person gets ptsd and someone else does not. This is a hot topic of research. Why do some of the smartest most talented people become addicts? Or do the most destructive things? (Like run military dictatorships.) Intelligence is one key. Emotional intelligence (a popular word) is another--that one has the sense to follow the instinct to hide. For some, even that 'sense to follow their instinct' has been broken by abuse. Frankly, I just consider myself darn lucky. Maybe I'm not giving myself enough credit--and my therapist would say I'm not--he asks me, too, how I managed to survive.

Lucky. I just remembered that is the name of the 'rape' memoir by Alice Sebald or Seward, or something. She also wrote The Lovely Bones.
