How does my post-traumatic stress disorder affect my life?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a specific form of anxiety with relatively predictable symptoms and predictable triggers of the symptoms. I have lost nearly all of my personal and professional relationships, na akụkụ, because of PTSDit is not a trivial matter that I can simplysnapout of: it is a serious and debilitating illness.

It involves:

  • Re-experiencing of traumatic events
  • Avoidance of events, places, ndị mmadụ, that might trigger re-experiencing the trauma
  • Numbing the senses to avoid feeling anything
  • A constant, alert state; being more easily startled than before the trauma
