You thought you were over it. Then suddenly, you find yourself shaking that you wanted to run but you felt numb. Your heart beats frantically and you remember the sensation as if it just happened yesterday, the place, the person, or even the strange smell in the air. Then suddenly you wake up and realize it was just a nightmare. This is the brain’s way of reliving the awful past.
As you stay awake in the middle of the night, you try to repress the images. Why and how it did it happen? Was it your fault? You thought it was behind you, but the feeling of shame and guilt. makes you see the monsters hiding under your bed are living and breathing inside you.
These are the common symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder or commonly known as PTSD. Unlike any physical wound, the symptoms of PTSD can be difficult to identify, especially if the battleground is inside your mind. You might think it is only depression or rage, but PTSD is actually different and anyone can be a victim.
However, you do not have to fight this battle alone. You do not have to live this way, because there is always hope and healing is possible. If you think you are suffering from PTSD, check the following signs below and seek the help you need.
The memories of the traumatic past may suddenly pop up and bother you, whether you are thinking about it or now. You may experience it in the daytime when you pass by a place that triggers you to remember the event, or at night during your sleep. These events can cause you to feel physical and mental distress such as headaches, heart palpitation, and sweating.
When you have PTSD, you try to avoid even the smallest details that remind you of the event that traumatize you. You try to erase anything that associates with your trauma. Some people try to self-medicate and turn to drugs or alcohol to find relief, finding later on that it does not help solve the real problem.
Physicians call these “arousal changes” when patients feel uneasy, irritated, jumpy, aggressive, and self-destructive. You respond differently when you cannot handle your emotions. Many people find it hard to focus on their day to day activities.
The signs of PTSD do not only come to the patient as a nightmare or flashbacks. It can be suicidal thoughts, feeling hopeless, numb, or blaming yourself or others. You will know it because it is crippling you, and the negativity you are feeling causes you to feel uninterested in the things you loved doing in the past.
Generally, you lost your interest in life, and the vigor and passion you once had were all gone. You find yourself alive but no longer living.
