In CASA training they taught us everything you experience changes the structure of your brain. Neurochemical pathways are a bit like trails in the woods; the more they get used, the easier they are to use. That's why abused kids often have overdeveloped fight or flight responses, which get invoked for all sorts of situations that don't actually require them.

I'm working on teaching my brain not to be in crisis.
