Hypervigilant-Adopted-Child

ADOPTEE RAGE!

Adopted-Child-Hypervigilance
_________________________________________________

The adopted child has experienced the trauma of forced removal from their biological mother, this results in the trauma that is encoded in their pituitary sensory system forever remembering their fear, isolation and anger at birth that the adopted child could never be calmed from this experience of being forcefully taken away from their biological parent. This constitutes the traumatic event and traumatic impact on the newborn child that has been stolen away from their potential life, as life should have been.

Effected adopted children, as I was experience the ongoing threat of being sent-back to the adoption agency and never the hope of being sent back to their biological mother, father and family.

The infant begins a regimen of hypervigilance to avoid annihilation at the hands of the new strangers...the adoptive parents. The newborn is helpless to defend himself and can only observe and react to the situations that come with each new hour and day of living. The adopted child's hypervigilance is their only tool to survive the adoption ordeal by observing, trying to mimic or copy the adoptive parent's behavior and continue to survive and live within the forced adoption realities perimeters.   

Hypervigilance


Hypervigilance is an enhanced state of sensory sensitivity accompanied by an exaggerated intensity of behaviors whose purpose is to detect threats. Hypervigilance is also accompanied by a state of increased anxiety which can cause exhaustion. Other symptoms include: abnormally increased arousal, a high responsiveness to stimuli, and a constant scanning of the environment for threats.
In hypervigilance, there is a perpetual scanning of the environment to search for sights, sounds, people, behaviors, smells, or anything else that is reminiscent of threat or trauma. The individual is placed on high alert in order to be certain danger is not near. Hypervigilance can lead to a variety of obsessive behavior patterns, as well as producing difficulties with social interaction and relationships.
Hypervigilance can be a symptom of (PTSD) and various types of anxiety disorders. It is distinguished from paranoia. Paranoid states, such as those in schizophrenia, can seem superficially similar, but are characteristically different.
Hypervigilance is differentiated from dysphoric hyperarousal in that the person remains cogent and aware of his or her surroundings. In dysphoric hyperarousal, the PTSD victim may lose contact with reality and re-experience the traumatic event verbatim. Where there have been multiple traumas, a person may become hypervigilant and suffer severe anxiety attacks intense enough to induce a delusional state where the effects of related traumas overlap. This can result in the thousand yard stare.

Symptoms

People suffering from hypervigilance may become preoccupied with scanning their environment for possible threats, causing them to lose connections with their family and friends. They will 'overreact' to loud and unexpected noises or become agitated in highly crowded or noisy environments. They will often have a difficult time getting to sleep or staying asleep.
