PTSD is an anxiety disorder that affects many people. PTSD is often triggered by a highly stressful event that one either experiences or witnesses.
Many believe that PTSD is only pertinent to individuals who have served in the armed forces, and although war veterans have experienced and suffered from PTSD, this disorder can also affect children, adolescents, and adults who have experienced or witnessed a terrifying event.
PTSD symptoms range from intrusive memories in which one re-lives the traumatic event, to changes in emotional reactions. People who have PTSD often express feeling numb, difficulty experiencing emotions, feeling like they always have to be on guard, and go to great lengths to avoid reminders of the trauma.
Living with untreated PTSD creates hardship not only for the individual, but for the person’s loved ones as well. If you have experienced a traumatic event that you haven’t been able to move past; regardless of how long it has been, please reach out for help!
