you have not heard that adrenile shortly after a tramatic experience, can stop the the person re-living it. or so the news media said..

some subway driver had someone jump in front of her train...

she got the shot and is doing better or something....

something about locking or not locking it into memory.....

you are the expert there so i will yeild to to you on that...

Any foreign substance, natural or manmade, can disrupt the natural chemistry in the brain.

Although it provides relief in the short term, the other brain chemicals are compensated, including the body's own system of producing adrenaline.

The better thing for someone to do to recover from a trauma is to grieve in its entirety, for as long as it takes for the person to feel better.

This will prevent the person from reliving the trauma, once the original grief is expelled. Grieving entirely will also prevent future symptoms, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I am so glad im not the only one with this fear. I get so squeamish around elbows. One time my friends thought it would be funny to pin me down and rub there elbows on me....well i started hyperventilating and nearly passsed out. Is there a name for this phobia of mine because it is so random.

it is obviously a fear of elbows connected with something
that has been lost in the pat and which enimates from your childhod...

I imagine it would be easily dealt with in stages and cleared up.

Lucky you don't live here, thy call drinking pints>

"Bending the elbow!! lol

My fear of elbows isnt so strong but it deffiently affects my day. When I rub my arm and by accident touch my elbows I have to wash my hands. When its 70 degrees out I'm still wearing long sleeve shirts because I absolutely fear elbows(other peoples even more than mine). Should I get help? And how would I get help for this?

There were once a man and a woman who had long in vain wished for a child. At length the woman hoped that God was about to grant her desire. These people had a little window at the back of their house from which a splendid garden could be seen, which was full of the most beautiful flowers and herbs. It was, however, surrounded by a high wall, and no one dared to go into it because it belonged to an enchantress, who had great power and was dreaded by all the world.

One day the woman was standing by this window and looking down into the garden, when she saw a bed which was planted with the most beautiful rampion - rapunzel, and it looked so fresh and green that she longed for it, and had the greatest desire to eat some. This desire increased every day, and as she knew that she could not get any of it, she quite pined away, and began to look pale and miserable. Then her husband was alarmed, and asked, what ails you, dear wife. Ah, she replied, if I can't eat some of the rampion, which is in the garden behind our house, I shall die.

The man, who loved her, thought, sooner than let your wife die, bring her some of the rampion yourself, let it cost what it will. At twilight, he clambered down over the wall into the garden of the enchantress, hastily clutched a handful of rampion, and took it to his wife. She at once made herself a salad of it, and ate it greedily. It tasted so good to her - so very good, that the next day she longed for it three times as much as before. If he was to have any rest, her husband must once more descend into the garden. In the gloom of evening, therefore, he let himself down again. But when he had clambered down the wall he was terribly afraid, for he saw the enchantress standing before him.

How can you dare, said she with angry look, descend into my garden and steal my rampion like a thief. You shall suffer for it. Ah, answered he, let mercy take the place of justice, I only made up my mind to do it out of necessity. My wife saw your rampion from the window, and felt such a longing for it that she would have died if she had not got some to eat. Then the enchantress allowed her anger to be softened, and said to him, if the case be as you say, I will allow you to take away with you as much rampion as you will, only I make one condition, you must give me the child which your wife will bring into the world. It shall be well treated, and I will care for it like a mother.

The man in his terror consented to everything, and when the woman was brought to bed, the enchantress appeared at once, gave the child the name of rapunzel, and took it away with her. Rapunzel grew into the most beautiful child under the sun. When she was twelve years old, the enchantress shut her into a tower, which lay in a forest, and had neither stairs nor door, but quite at the top was a little window. When the enchantress wanted to go in, she placed herself beneath it and cried, rapunzel, rapunzel, let down your hair to me.

He has a very deep, intense fear of elbows. Little does he know he is about to embark on a great adventure involving 2,000 chipmunks and a scrungee.
