Read Diana's personal message below
May’s Blog Post is about the Amygdala -- which is an almond shaped structure located in the limbic system within the brain.
This area in the brain is key to how Trauma and strong emotions like fear, anxiety, aggression and pleasure are processed. The amygdala also plays an important role in the storage and retrieval of emotional memories.

How does your brain cope with trauma? If the brain registers an overwhelming trauma, then it can essentially block that memory in a process called dissociation—or detachment from reality. This can be understood as the brain attempting to protect itself.
