It's called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. Lots of information online regarding it. Here's Wikipedia's version: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posttraumatic_stress_disorder

Today we went on the hill, same place as we did last year. I remember the last lap well "Go Ghost Go".

I've done a lot of grieving over the last year. This Sunday when we go to our usual seats in Section 3, I will bring extra Kleenex for the introduction and memorials.

Being a long time air race fan, I have paid my respects in my own way to all that died that September day.

But rest assured, I will joining every one, including the spirits of all the friends/family/fellow fans that we lost in giving a big cheer when the engines start and we have the Sunday finals.

I used a PTSD guy after last year.
Eye movement trick fixed me almost instantly.

I think he might be refering to rapid eye movement desensitization.

That was it, forgot the name.
For me, it was very helpful. And for several others too.

I was surprised on how few times I thought about it. When I did There is still a sense of denial.

Same here. I lived through it , but its gone somewhere in my brain that's detached from reality. I came here as part of the healing process. I went to the spot and the stands today and sat through the NTSB presentation. I thought I would be a mess of tears coming up over the hill first time Friday but it has not happened. Yes I've replayed the scene a lot this weekend .

I work out at Stead, I'm out there most every day. I'm also at the airport at least once a month. So just being there has never been an issue with me.

Been out at the races since Monday, watching every unlimited race and qual session. I didnt have a problem till Fridays heat race when dread caught dirty air rounding 2, and almost got turned upside down. From that point, my stomach felt like that Jelly Belly wheel was in there spinning, and it didnt stop till all planes were safely on the ground. I went to the same place (Saturday) and watch the race, and I was just fine.

The only thing to really bother me all week was the vacuum cleaners/lawn darts and the Patriots. Then I just went to my safe (as could be) spot and hit till they were done flying. They just scare the hell out of me. :eek13:
