Trauma can take many forms, and if you’ve experienced violence, assault, unexpected loss, active duty, natural disaster, or abuse, you are at an increased risk of developing a mental health disorder known as PTSD. This painful condition can impact your mental, physical, and emotional health in significant ways. It can rob you of your ability to tend to daily living tasks, impact your eating and sleeping patterns, and make it hard to perform at full capacity at work or school.
When struggling with PTSD, your life may seem controlled by triggering memories of the traumatic event(s), and you may soon find yourself withdrawing from loved ones or activities you used to enjoy. PTSD involves a pervasive fear of people, places, and things that remind you of your trauma. These fears can be so intense that you begin shaping your life to avoid exposure to anything that may cause your symptoms to worsen.
