Do I have PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)?

Learning to Heal from Trauma is possible.

If you have ever wondered why you are scared all the time or get angry easily, or simply do not understand what is happening with all of your emotions and they go from one extreme to the other, you might be experiencing the symptoms of trauma or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (“PTSD”).  PTSD can happen not only to soldiers who have seen traumatic experiences during periods of war but can also happen to individuals who have experienced violence, rape, abuse of any kind, environmental disasters, and specifically this past year, the leading cause of death, a pandemic.

If you have triggers, you can experience fear, anger, out-of-body experiences, dreams, nightmares, and anything that might affect any of your senses. “No matter how much insight and understanding we develop, the rational brain is impotent to talk the emotional brain out of its reality. You can discuss the story of victimization, but you struggle to verbalize the reality of your inner experience and you do not know how to be fully alive in the present.”
(The Body Keeps the Score, Bessell van der Kolk, 2015) .

Learning to heal from trauma is possible, but it is a process. You can heal and become alive again and be in control of your life.
