I scream because I want to be seen
When people with PTSD or BPD become so emotionally overcharged everything losses perspective, the sufferer feels diminished and failing in their attempts to communicate and the volumes of conversations get raised. Most friends or spouses interpret this as screaming, yelling and even abuse…in the majority of cases, it is really not…these people, locked in side their heads are just trying to be ‘seen’. They feel like they are drowning but they are in a foreign land, they are screaming for help and no one sees or understands them so they increase the volume in proportion to the pain and frustration.
I’m not making excuses, just giving insight.
