What is Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Trauma is talked about a lot in our culture but what is it really? “Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape, or natural disaster.” The immediate reaction when people experience these terrible experiences is trauma. All trauma has lingering effects, but not all trauma produces Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Some events are so severe that they can cause a person to develop this disorder. People who suffer from PTSD typically relive the trauma in their mind whether it’s through flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, or nightmares.

How can it affect your life?

No matter the severity, trauma is a complex and difficult thing to face and it affects your life in many ways. Trauma can alter your mood causing anxiety, stress, depression or feelings of guilt and terror. It also bleeds into your relationships and your physical health.
PTSD can cause you to be withdrawn from or irritable toward your friends and family. It can make you feel detached from reality or like you’re caught up in your own head. It can also come with physical symptoms of headaches, sleep problems, heart palpitations, and tremors.

How can I get help for it?

Seeking a counselor who is professionally trained to help patients cope with trauma is essential. These traumatic events affect people on a deep level and people who seek treatment have a better ability to recover and start their journey toward peace.
