Do I Have PTSD?

Do I have PTSD?

There comes a point– when your symptoms persist– to ask yourself; “do I have PTSD?”

Post-Traumatic Stress is anything that leaves emotional residue in your body and mind and, therefore, interferes with normal daily functioning.

This is either caused by an incidental-shock trauma or could develop over time, as in developmental issues of neglect, abuse or misattunement. It can even be a combination of both!

Do I have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and What is Involved?

Your PTSD 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.

In other words, 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 PTSD.
