Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) occurs when an individual faces a single or continuing series of severely stressful situations.
Avoidance of any situation which reminds the individual of the trauma experienced is one of the main symptoms.
Symptoms of trauma are diverse. Sleeplessness, lack of appetite, anxiety, and depression can be experienced. However, the effects of trauma can also affect us in ways we wouldn’t expect, such as having difficulty controlling emotions, low self-esteem, poor attention, reduced ability to concentrate and remember things, shame, guilt, and even physical pain.
Is PTSD affecting your life?
Mainly known for affecting veterans, PTSD may also be experienced by any individual after a traumatic experience, including mothers after childbirth.
