PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – Is it
“Disrupting Your Life”?
PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is beginning to affect a lot of people’s lives. If you are one of them, it more than likely is creating a disruption within your life. The first thing you may notice is feeling different than you were before the trauma. And if this is so, you’ve come to the right place.
After a traumatic experience life can become stressful experiencing things you do not understand like nightmares, insomnia, flashbacks, rage, emotional numbing, hyper-vigilance, hyper-arousal, depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and even avoidance.
Understanding these PTSD symptoms can by it self give you comfort, knowing that you are not crazy. While each person experiences how they handle trauma differently, we all have a lot of similar symptoms while dealing with PTSD.
With PTSD becoming a global issue continuing to grow, it is exciting that there are more and more different avenues in how a person can eliminate it from there world. In my opinion the only ones not believing that, are those that have gone to medical school and found that until they do centuries of studies none of the real work matters to them.
To begin with the biggest issue with PTSD is that they call it a disorder, and I like to believe it as an injury, that is really no different than a cut outside of our bodies. Just like a physical cut recent research suggests that up to 90% of all cases are wholly treatable, a statistic not unlike any physical injury.
I myself struggled with undiagnosed PTSD for 36 years — and when I discovered how it disrupted my life I searched everywhere for a way to eliminate it from my life. Today, I am 90% PTSD-free. Only discovering things once in awhile that I just simply eliminate instead of hold on to thinking I am a victim of them.
