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 misattunement, or could even be a combination of all of 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 subsequently experienced.
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, bipolar disorder, fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, anxiety disorders, fibromyalgia, and many others are most often symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress.
Approaching Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms and What it Encompasses
The material to be learned, which I provide, is aimed at all those who want to learn more about and resolve their Post-Traumatic Stress, be it intense or mildly disruptive.
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; it does not have 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 which was set off by sexual violence, accident, loss, surgery or primitive ritual abuse. Perhaps you are troubled by an early life history of neglect, abuse, or chaos, as may be the case if you grew up with an alcoholic or depressive parent, were an unwanted child, if you witnessed the divorce of parents while young, if you compared yourself or were incessantly compared to others, if you experienced an early life-threatening disease or other prolonged periods of stress.
Or you could have issues around anger, anxiety, self-worth, depression, relationship and healthy attachment, burnout, or dealing with a midlife crisis.
