Do I have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Post-Traumatic Stress is anything that leaves emotional residue in the body and mind and interferes with normal daily functioning.
This could be caused by an incidental-shock trauma; could develop over time, as in developmental issues of neglect, abuse or mis-attunement, or could even be a combination of all these.
Levels of Post-Traumatic Stress and PTSD Symptoms
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can have different levels of intensity; depending on the state of mind you were in when exposed to the trauma; how you reacted to it, and the support or lack of support you experienced subsequently.
PTSD is a severe form of Post-Traumatic Stress with acute symptoms and is often accompanied by an inability to have a normal, routine life. Other diagnoses such as depression, bi-polar disorder, fatigue syndrome, multiple-sclerosis, anxiety disorders, fibromyalgia and many others are most often symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress.

I intentionally emphasize the use of the term Post-Traumatic Stress as it is all encompassing, plus the fact that it signifies an injury which is in response to a traumatic event or period in personal history that can be resolved rather than deeming it to be a life-sentence.
Post-Traumatic Stress is pervasive and affects a large part of our population.
You may have found me because you suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is set off by sexual violence, accident, loss, surgery or primitive ritual abuse; or you are troubled by early life history of neglect, abuse, incoherence, as may be the case in growing up with an alcoholic or depressive parent, being an unwanted child, witnessing the divorce of parents while young, comparing yourself or being incessantly compared to others, early life-threatening diseases or other prolonged periods of stress.
Or you could have issues around anger, anxiety, self-worth, depression, relationship and healthy attachment; burn-out or dealing with mid-life crisis.
