Many people experience traumatic events such as a car accident, a natural disaster, or from combat in the armed services. It’s normal to experience trouble sleeping or discomforting memories after such an occurrence and have difficulty getting back into regular activities. Most people will start to get back into their routines like normal after a few weeks or months. However, some people may experience this form of shell shock longer than what may seem normal.

What is PTSD?
PTSD can develop in a person as a result of a physically or emotionally horrifying, possibly life-threatening occurrence. Those with PTSD may be experiencing long term sensations of anxiety, guilt, helplessness or intensified fear. While it is normal to experience these sensations following a traumatic event, it becomes a danger to one’s health if they don’t subside after a certain amount of time. People with PTSD may find that their symptoms worsen over time, keeping them from living their life as they would before the traumatic event. If you find yourself to have signs of post traumatic stress disorder, contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment. We are here to support you and help you lead a happy, healthy life.
