What are the Signs and Symptoms of Trauma and PTSD?
Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime. These traumas can range in severity from a car accident to abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. All forms of trauma and its effects are valid, but some may be easier for people to recover from than others. Some individuals will be able to recover over time with the support of friends and loved ones. Other individuals will discover they have effects of lasting trauma that can cause deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress long after the event has passed.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms of trauma include:
- Intrusive thoughts about the traumatic event
- Flashbacks which can feel like reliving the event
- Avoidance of certain people, places, or activities that remind you of the trauma
- Difficulty sleeping or nightmares
- Hypervigilance or feeling constantly on edge
- Negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself, the world, and the future
- Low self-esteem
- Anger or irritability
- Anxiety, depression, numbness, or guilt
What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that occurs when someone experiences a traumatic event in their life. However, it is diagnosed when the symptoms of trauma do not go away and become chronic. Some of the symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, difficulty sleeping, hypervigilance, or feeling constantly on edge. PTSD can be debilitating and this is why if you feel as if it is impacting your life, it is important to seek help.
