What is PTSD?
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety/stress disorder that occurs after exposure to a traumatic event, such as an assault, war, near death accident, or other emotionally charged life events.
After a traumatic event, the mind tends to remain on high alert at all times, triggering several an anxiety, stress, and even psychosis when faced with triggering stimuli.
PTSD is not just restricted to life-threatening events but can also stem from situations that have a profound emotional impact. The disorder leads to intense, sometimes unbearable psychological stress that can last for months or even years if left untreated.
Symptoms of PTSD
Post traumatic stress disorder can manifest itself in different ways, both depending on the person and on the type of event(s). Examples of PTSD symptoms include, but are not limited to:
Avoidance of People/Places that Trigger Symptoms
Distorted Feelings of Guilt or Blame
Symptoms can also be very physical in nature, with:
Feelings of Detachment – A disconnection from friends, family, or oneself.
Exaggerated Startle Reflex – A heightened response to triggers or stimuli.
Despair – Feelings of hopelessness and persistent sadness.
We may experience pronounced symptoms of anxiety and stress as well. Those with PTSD may also be at risk for developing other mental health disorders, like depression, which can add to those symptoms.
