Hope in the Face of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

 

This series has focused on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and how it affects those who live with its symptoms. PTSD is, as we have seen, a life-altering disorder that changes the direction of many people’s lives.

A Quick Recap of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Scary and dangerous events cause most humans to feel fear, and this fright sets off a cascade of chemical reactions in the body that readies it for the fight/flight/freeze response. Everyone who encounters a fearful event where they felt temporarily out of control will experience PTSD for a short time.

However, PTSD can become chronic in those who experience an event such as a traffic accident, sexual assault, or witnessing a violent crime. These folks cannot quickly recover from the trauma they faced and are diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

I am so glad to see this post, as someone with PTSD and was told because I was not military or a veteran there was zero support for me and that was WITH 10 different medical professionals on my medical team trying to "treat" me AND a weeks stay at a mental health facility where I was diagnosed and sent home with no support. Now I know otherwise, at the time I felt so alone. Wonderful articles and great blog. You are amazing!
