Battling PTSD? It’s Time to Take Back Your Life
Sep 24, 2020
Emotion. Aftermath. Scared. Trauma. Alert. Restless. These words and many more succeed in explaining the agony survivors face daily with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It's a scary world out there living with PTSD because triggers occur sporadically, sometimes without warning. PTSD is the lasting mark of hardship, even when the physical wounds have healed. PTSD is the brain's way of desperately surviving what most people deem, their worst nightmares. Social settings pose a burden for people with PTSD because the need to explain angry outbursts, agitation or mistrust is ever present, and becomes exhausting. People with PTSD fight to ignore the symptoms, and it tends to close the books on relationships with family, friends, and coworkers.
Other symptoms of PTSD include:
- Negative mood
- Social isolation
- Difficulty concentrating
Do you think you may be suffering from PTSD? If any of the symptoms feel familiar to you, PTSD therapy can help you take back your life. People with PTSD are immersed in the memories of their traumatic experiences. PTSD patrons require a safe-haven to discuss their story. PTSD therapy can expose the triggers that conjure symptoms and provide ways to subdue them.
You don't have to fight PTSD alone. There are people near you that can listen and provide aid to every heartache, memory and, disheartening dream you've been through. Every traumatic experience is different with unique symptoms, which requires an individual counseling plan. PTSD therapy will teach skills to handle your symptoms and put self-esteem back into your life. Car accidents, witnessed death, witnessed a robbery, sexual abuse, war, military deployments are only the tip of the iceberg of the stories behind PTSD. However, with help, stories like yours can end the same with freedom. You don't have to be one of the thousands that suffer in silence. Your road to recovery can begin today!
