May 25, 2021 Anxiety

After any traumatic event, it is normal to feel disturbing memories, trouble sleeping, or doing daily activities. These feelings take time to end when we experience a traumatic event. After a few weeks, the person begins to feel better and returns to normal. However, if the feeling persists for more than a few months, you may experience Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

PTSD is a depressive disorder, in which a person continues to experience the effects of a traumatic event. These events / memories, begin to arouse anxiety within them. Memories of the event become very stressful for them and they are unable to continue with their daily work.

Therefore, below are the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder:
Reversal:
A person with PTSD will begin to recall a moment in their mind. Memories will be represented as nightmares or endless thoughts. Therefore, it will give you a sense of being trapped right now.

Avoidance:
You will start to avoid times or situations that remind you of the event. Also, you will start to ignore the person related to the time. Thus, to avoid the situation altogether; even talking about it.
