I'm curious...do you react well under pressure? I have found that some of us with PTSD thrive under pressure because that has become our default state of equilibrium. We are used to being under stress if you will. Others of us get easily overwhelmed and then shut down because our bodies get flooded with stress hormones and we cannot function anymore. I vacillate between these two depending upon the type of pressure I'm experiencing. And usually I handle emergencies well but am less adept at handling extended crises.

How do you handle stress? Share your experiences below.
