PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) can develop if you have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event ranging from a variety of forms of abuse such as: emotional, physical or sexual.
What is PTSD?
It is a reaction to psychological trauma where you may have been exposed to an extreme form of danger or personal injury causing you to relive the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks.
How does PTSD affect me?
PTSD is a delayed response to a stressful event or situation of an exceptionally threatening or catastrophic nature, which is likely to cause extreme distress in almost anyone. Symptoms of PTSD and trauma can vary in intensity over time. You may experience more symptoms when you are stressed in general for example. You may have trouble sleeping, nightmares, have vivid flashbacks (experiencing the trauma right now) or feel numb.
Symptoms of PTSD can include:
- Reliving the trauma through intrusive thoughts and nightmares
- Feel intense distress when confronted with triggers
- Avoidance of stimuli associated with trauma
- Signs of heightened irritability such as sleep disturbance
- Emotion numbing and forgetfulness for significant parts of the event
- Feelings of panic and fear
- Depression, anger or any unexplained symptoms.
- You may develop further secondary psychological disorders as complications of the PTSD such as:
- Substance misuse
- Depression with the risk of suicide
- Anxiety disorders including panic attacks.
