Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a condition that is often triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. This can be anything and anyone can experience it, whether it be military personnel, emergency services members, victims or witnesses of crime, or even people going through a serious family tragedy. Trauma is different for everyone, and PTSD can affect everybody.
PTSD isn’t always easy to identify because many people can have issues coping and adjusting to an experience, but eventually get better in time. However, if your experiences are seriously affecting your day-to-day functions, and it doesn’t seem to improve over time, this might be a sign of PTSD. Symptoms can include recurring memories, nightmares, negative thoughts, lack of emotion, and mood disorders.
The first step to treating PTSD or any trauma is by talking about your condition and your symptoms to professionals who can help. Safe and effective treatment without the use of medication exists.
